DVD: “Coming Out,” “Swiss Army Man,” “Into The Forest,” & More!

by Lawrence Ferber October 11, 2016


Need something to distract you from the Trump sh*tshow? We’ve got some diverse home entertainment selections indeed!

A gay man documents his coming out in the aptly titled Coming Out (above), while Daniel Radcliffe stars as an adorable corpse in the utterly gonzo Swiss Army Man. Finally, out queer actresses Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood star as sisters in post-apocalyptic drama Into The Forest.

Let’s scroll for the trailers, details, and your comments!


Coming Out

($26.95 DVD; Wolfe)

Brooklyn-based gay filmmaker Alden Peters decided to document his own coming out process, bringing a camera along as he shares his truth with family, friends, and more. Some of the interactions prove quite revealing, and Peters intersperses these episodes with discussions about sexuality with other camera-friendly guests like YouTuber Kayla Kearney, and also crowdsourced coming out accounts from other gay folk. Includes a special two-part version created for high school classrooms and discussion.


Swiss Army Man

($19.04 Blu-ray, $19.98 DVD; A24)

Variety called this “Castaway meets Weekend At Bernies as directed by Michel Gondry,” and that’s not a bad way to describe this gonzo buddy movie in which Paul Dano plays a despondent castaway who, just as he is about to end his misery, finds a semi-animated corpse played by Daniel Radcliffe. So begins a very different buddy movie, which involves lots of flatulence. Weirdness abounds. Extras include a commentary, featurettes, deleted scenes, and filmmaker Q&A (because, frankly, someone needs to explain this one).


Into The Forest

($24.99 Blu-ray, $19.98 DVD; Lionsgate)

Living in the remote, woodsy Northwest with their father, siblings Nell (Ellen Page) and Eva (Evan Rachel Wood) find all power and technology has suddenly gone down due to a mysterious event. However, that’s the least of their problems when a tragic accident, shifty strangers, and a horrific crime strike their once idyllic corner of the woods… Directed by out lesbian Patricia Rozema (When Night Is Falling, I’ve Heard The Mermaids Singing), and based on Jean Hegland’s post-apocalyptic 1996 novel, this is a somber and sometimes intense meditation on family and survival. Extras include a making-of and commentary.

by Dan Tracer October 23, 2016

October is LGBT History Month and Equality Forum is honoring an icon a day all month long, including David Bowie, who was honored October 7, despite the fact that he would probably look askance at such a title.
