7. DVD: 3
Available on DVD, the latest from Run Lola Run’s Tom Tykwer — his first German-language film in 10 years — is a steamy romantic drama that also pays tribute to classic screwball comedies. A sleek yet fanciful exploration of hipster-y sexual fluidity, the film centers on Hanna and Simon, a 40-something Berlin couple who, unbeknownst to each other, begin affairs and fall in love with the same younger man.
6. DVD: Queen: Days of Our Lives
This utterly compelling and surely definitive documentary reveals the fascinating history of the brilliant and influential (looking at you, Gaga) band Queen and its legendary, flamboyant front man Freddie Mercury, told for the first time by its members. Incorporating new interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor as well as rare archival footage, the film chronicles Mercury's euphoric high while experiencing sexual freedom at bars like New York's notorious Anvil and his devastatingly premature demise — his gaunt appearance during a final video shoot is particularly heartbreaking. Originally broadcast in two parts on BBC, Days of Our Lives is now available on DVD and Blu-ray and contains bonus features that include previously unseen performances.
5. TV: Absolutely Fabulous
“Job,” the latest of the new series of AbFab specials, is just as raucous as the first, “Identity.” Here, Eddy (Jennifer Saunders) enlists former Spice Girl Emma Bunton and Lulu to help her new client, a famous French film star who wants a singing career, but it's Bubble (the reliably brilliant Jane Horrocks) who comes to the rescue. Watch it on Logo February 6.
