On AfterElton.com, Alonso Duralde Asks:


What Ever Happened to Queer Cinema?

Causing me to lament: "It makes me want to weep when I see so many boring, conventional films being made. These films that are not cinematic but are merely using a camera, dialogue, and some actors to tell a moderately interesting gay story are just not enough anymore.”

I then redeem myself from total snobbery by confessing my great love of Q. Alan Brocka's new Logo show, Rick & Steve.

P.S. And in an interesting coincidence Ernest Hardy reflects on this same phenomenon in A Queer State of Affairs One critic wonders: Have gay movies stopped challenging their audience? in the LA Weekly.
