A rousing rock concert and gutsy spiritual adventure, Paul Oakley Stovall's enlightening musical enterprise was loosely based his own journey from retail to White House advance associate. In this fictionalized tale of self-exploration — Obama is replaced by a lovable female candidate, for starters — Stovall also examined his attraction to black-fetishizing white guys, and Brad Simmons was a standout as his “hey, gurl” confidante.

Inspired by Jacques Brel’s “Au Suivant,” Stephen Gracia’s solid WWII drama featured a variety of soldiers waiting in line to visit a mobile Army unit whorehouse. There’s some “faggot” trash-talking, and some men teasingly try to convince the lone virgin that he’s gay and that the lieutenant — a skeevy voyeur who doubled as an awkward narrator — wants to screw him, but long stretches of gratuitous nudity got no complaints from me.
