Streamers – Watching Robert Altman’s 1983 film adaptation of David Rabe’s award-winning play about a group of Vietnam-bound soldiers waiting to ship out from a US Army barracks, with its before-they-were-famous cast headed by Matthew Modine, David Allen Grier, and out actor-turned-director Mitchell Litchenstein (as an openly gay recruit) remains a visceral, if sometimes too talky experience.
Tennessee – Mariah Carey first teamed with out filmmaker Lee Daniels (who produced this film) in this sometimes-meandering road trip saga about two brothers driving cross country to seek out their estranged father. While her performance as waitress who tags along to seek singing stardom has its charm, the pair had better luck with the Daniels-directed Precious.
Also on DVD: Kathy Griffin: She’ll Cut a Bitch — The uncensored version of the self-proclaimed D-Lister’s 2009 concert, filmed live in Portland, Oregon, finds the funny lady skewering everyone from Cher to the Jonas Brothers.
