Antonio Gaudi

This brief (72-minute) tribute to the visionary Spanish architect Gaudi (1852-1926) by Hiroshi Teshigahara (Woman in the Dunes) is a beautifully oblique cinematic biography that focuses more on the creations than the creator. Utilizing subtitles without dialogue, ethereal electronic sounds…

A Gay Old Time

The S.F. International LGBT Film Festival (6/14-6/24), at 31 the world's oldest and biggest queer film fest, has always been as much about community and identity as anything else, offering visibility and validation in a culture that hasn't been exactly…

No More Sad Young Men

Killer dykes, suicidal trannies, arch sissies, and "sad young men" (think Dorian Gray) were some of the stereotypical queer characters in mainstream film until the early 1990s, when the New Queer Cinema radically expanded the canvas. The San Francisco International…

Film It Yourself

With the airwaves awash in "good news" about Iraq (never mind those pesky body counts) and the return of irrational exuberance about the economy (ignore all those depleted pension funds and outsourced jobs), a reminder of what's actually happening in…

Brains and Braun

You'd think that with a life as crazed as his was -- oceans of drink, drugs, sleazy sex, suicidal male lovers, and tormented wives -- Rainer Werner Fassbinder wouldn't have had time to make movies. He did, though, cramming into…

Kinky; Virgins

The 23rd San Francisco Jewish Film Festival explores a bracing range of the "Jewish experience" -- with important nods to the Palestinian experience -- with varying results. Bobby Roth's opening-night feature Manhood, for example, is a cliché-ridden misfire that plucky…

Boys and Girls on Film

If size matters, the 27th San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival must be meaningful indeed. From its ramshackle origins as a small event with a handful of titles, it's become the world's biggest gay movie fest. This is…

The Original Gangsta

The standard image of the 1950s as an era of unfettered achievement and optimism tells only part of the story; that decade's film noir narratives speak of darker things. And there's no better spokesman for the latter than Phil Karlson,…

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
