DVD: “54: The Director’s Cut,” “Princess,” “Like Cattle Towards Glow” & More!

by Lawrence Ferber May 24, 2016


It would seem the the dark side – at least of sexuality and human nature – runs strong through this week’s home entertainment selections.

An adolescent girl and her male doppleganger endure a difficult situation and emerging sexuality in Princess (above), while a naive albeit hot New Jersey boy lands in a decadent queer world in 54: The Director’s Cut.

Finally, controversial gay writer Dennis Cooper makes his (co-)directorial debut with a handful of tales about beautiful youth in crisis, Like Cattle Towards Glow.

Trailers and details await your scrolling!



($21.99 DVD; Breaking Glass Pictures)

A provocative Sundance Film Festival title, Israeli director Tali Shalom Ezer’s drama follows a 12-year-old girl, Adar, who comes across a male doppleganger, Alan, one day. They become fast friends, seemingly both intrigued by their physical semblance (Alan, by the way, appears to be a hustler), which also piques the curiosity of Alma’s mother’s boyfriend, Michael. In fact, Michael becomes downright smitten by the lad, and from there things get a bit dark and even dreamlike, leading one to wonder who this boy really is. Thought provoking, gorgeously lensed, and impressively acted by the two adolescent leads, this is a unique – and, admittedly, during one scene, quite uncomfortable – watch for sure.


54: The Director’s Cut

($14.99 Blu-ray, $9.99 DVD; Lionsgate)

Mark Christopher’s Saturday Night Fever-esque tale about a young New Jersey guy – played by Ryan Philippe – who enters the decadent, queer world of legendary NYC disco Studio 54 was infamously de-gayed by distributor Miramax back when it hit theaters in 1998. Over 15 years later, Christopher’s original, saucy unrated vision, complete with a gay kiss between Philippe and Breckin Meyer and more of Mike Myers as lecherous owner Steve Rubell, has been restored and released. A must!


Like Cattle Towards Glow

($24.99 DVD; TLA)

Writer Dennis Cooper (Frisk) brings more of his alternatively erotic and disturbing tales about queer lost, and sometimes murdered, youth to the screen with his first directorial effort, in collaboration with co-screenwriter/director Zac Farley. Comprised of five sometimes sexually explicit stories, the film’s protagonists include a hustler who specializes in necrophiliac clients, a skater boy who gets kidnapped, and a voyeur. Dark stuff, kids!

Here’s The Photo That Nearly Got David McIntosh Banned From Instagram

by Dan Tracer October 24, 2016

When you have a body like this, you should probably just go ahead and do everything sans clothing. McIntosh knows: “If you appreciate your body, why would you want to cover it up? You might as well show it off.” Agreed. “I live in an apartment with buildings facing onto it, so when I walk [...]
