"I wanted to invent myself as a fictional character. And I did,
and it has caused a great deal of confusion."

Cloudburst

Cloudburst (Dukakis, Fricker)

"Any mop can give you an orgasm."

Within minutes of the opening, Stella (Olympia Dukakis) says "Any mop can give you an orgasm." I started laughing at that point and was charmed and fell in love and had a laughter orgasm all mine own. Cloudburst is as beautiful as the clouds, "like a donkey carrying 2 nuns & a beagle racing across the sky".

Thom Fitzgerald wrote and directed this brilliant lesbian film with such finesse and power as to make me swoon.

Loose Canons 'Mine vaganti'

Loose Canons, Ozpetek Scamarcio

Ferzan Ozpetek delivers another gem.

Loose Canons is as light and fluffy as a rom-com, but made substantial and reflective through art. I just loved this film.
I certainly rank Ozpetek in the top five filmmakers working today. He is fuckin' brilliant.
