9. DVD: Kaboom
“New queer cinema” pioneer Gregg Araki regresses in the best possible way with this trippy sci-fi comedy — winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s first Queer Palm — which is just out on DVD. Cinema Verité’s Thomas Dekker stars as Smith, a horny bisexual college freshman who crushes on his straight surfer roomie (The Amazing Spider-Man’s Chris Zylka) and uncovers an apocalyptic conspiracy with his acerbic lesbian best friend.
8. BOOK: It's Always Darkest Before Dawn, Jeremy Kost
This first monograph from party photographer Jeremy Kost, master of the Polaroid collage, captures New York’s underground club scene with vibrantly skewed portraits of drag queens, go-go boys, trans divas, and hard-partying personalities by cocktail-shaking spontaneity with meticulous composition, accentuating the careful performance aspect of nightlife culture. Curator Eric C. Shiner and club denizen Ladyfag provide keen prefaces.
