Four recent films
of queer interest make their home video debut on
Tuesday, March 21. Boasting an Oscar-winning performance by
Philip Seymour Hoffman,
Capote
(Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) tells the
fascinating story of gay author Truman Capote and the
changes he undergoes in his relentless pursuit to
finish his "nonfiction novel" In Cold Blood.
Gay playwright Craig Lucas makes his directorial debut
with
The Dying Gaul
(Sony Pictures Home Entertainment), a contemporary
Greek tragedy set in Hollywood, which examines the
betrayal and revenge between a screenwriter (Peter
Sarsgaard), a studio executive (Campbell Scott), and
the executive's wife (Patricia Clarkson). Another favorite
at gay film festivals,
Loggerheads
(Strand Releasing Home Video), examines
intertwining stories of love and loss; the haunting drama
stars Kip Pardue, Bonnie Hunt, Tess Harper, and Bonnie
Hunt. Finally, the sexy Greek dark comedy
Blackmail Boy
(Picture This! Home Video) follows a hot grifter and
the web of intrigue he weaves in and out of any number
of beds.
