Knight at HOME at the Movies
Four diverse gay themed movies worth checking out in this edition of DVD Recommendations.
Noah's Arc: Jumping The Broom - From MTV From New Line Cinema. The feature film continuation of the popular LOGO series
that focuses on a gay African-American male variation of the Sex & the City quartet, arrives on February 3rd. The story follows the
tumultuous ups and downs of the foursome, per usual, attending the Martha’s Vineyard winter wedding of Noah to his hunky
boyfriend. The movie, like the series, is thin but lively and offers enough laughs, insight and outrageous outfits to make it worth a
trip down the aisle.
Save Me – From First Run Features. A sobering, contemplative drama with out actors Chad Allen and Robert Gant, who both
executive produced along with co-star Judith Light (“Ugly Betty”) finds Allen as a gay party boy finding love in an ex-gay camp run by
Light (who gives a tremendous performance). It’s available now.
Ghost Writer – From Sony. Out actor Alan Cumming directs and stars in this genuine oddity, a gruesome dark comedy in which he
plays a schizophrenic music teacher fixated on his hunky straight lodger, David Boreanaz, a sex addicted writer who wants to sell a
book to publisher Anne Heche. But Boreanaz hasn’t counted on the actions of his demented landlord. The cast includes Jane Lynch,
Henry Thomas, Carrie Fisher, Karen Black in a black teddy (really), and a torture scene that is not for the squeamish.
Another Gay Sequel – From TLA. Brainless, sorta sexy fun and the gayest movie on this list finds the quartet (mostly recast
from the original) heading down south in pursuit of sex, sun and surf. The DVD offers a tad more raunch.
