Gay Theme Biofilms

I'd like to see a biographical film about Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy.

Some time ago, there was an excellent documentary about their life together.

Allen Ginsberg and Peter Orlovsky as well. They were together many years.

DougieB, James Franco made a film about them a few years ago.

I'm really slipping. I actually saw and liked that film.

No, not you, you couldn't be slipping.

Believe it. I think maybe part of the reason it slipped my mind is that it registered more as James Franco giving a performance as Allen Ginsberg than as a living, breathing evocation of Ginsberg. Of course, my real familiarity with Ginsberg comes from a later point in his life, which is better documented with visual and audio recordings, so maybe it's unfair of me to say that about Franco's performance, which was a good one.

To tell the truth, I'm not that crazy about James Franco.

But I do remember that particular film.

Did you see "King Cobra", which is based on an actual crime case?

There's a hard-edged sex scene with him and his partner which focuses on **** intercourse.

I was surprised that he'd go that far on film.

Because he has said that he identifies as a gay man -

but he does not want to have sex with men!

Maybe he's just shy.

I hope the handsome Mr Franco keeps on making his quirky films
