Polari Magazine’s Favourite Films of 2013

Films of 2013.

From Ryan Gosling in art house, Divine in drag and Gore Vidal in memoriam, here is a selection of Polari Magazine’s Favourite Films of 2013.

I Want Your Love

US: 71 min • Naked Sword / Peccadillo Pictures • June 28 2013

A small but significant as well as moving film about real gay men of all shapes and sizes.

“There isn’t even a sub-plots involving mobile phones, a miracle in itself. It’s the anti-city that capitalism forgot and which is rarely portrayed, especially in a ‘gay’ context.”

In Their Room London

Cert:18 • US: 32 min • Kickstarter • April 13 2013

In Their Room London. The series is an fly-on-the-wall, verité style to show gay men in their private spaces at private moments. Insightful.

” They eat and wash and groom and wank (not necessarily in that order) and talk about aspects of their sexuality, from what they like in bed to their dreams and desires regarding relationships.”

Naked Talk: In Their Room London

The Latest Travis Mathews Film.

Michael Langan talks to Alex Karotsch, the Fringe! Film Fest producer, who is performing in Travis Mathews’ film In Their Room London.

“In a film like that you can’t really hold back. And I didn’t want to hold back, because that’s the whole point of it. So I tried to be as honest as possible, but it’s very different from talking to your friends.”

Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Festival: The Interview

For the Queer Community.

Alex Karotsch and Muffin Hix talk about the hip queer film festival Fringe! and why it is by the community and for the community.

“A festival doesn’t have to be about big shiny premieres. We don’t have an industry section to our festival. It’s for the public that want to come out and see films.”

Interior. Leather Bar.

Cert:18 • US: 60 min • RabbitBandini Productions • January 19, 2013

Interior. Leather Bar. This playful film is a fascinating look at queer desire, and the extent to which we are actors in our own lives.

“The narrative sets up questions around freedom of expression, individual and societal homophobia, and anxieties about depicting sex generally, so that the sex itself, when it happens, becomes an embodiment of those issues.”

Sundance 2013: Looking Back

The Film Festival Circuit Continues.

As Travis Mathews travels from Sundance to the Berlin International Film Festival, he looks back on the reception of Interior. Leather Bar.

“Festivals have their own interests and politics, so there’s lots of emails, lots of new personalities and lots of meetings. There’s something hilarious about it all because it doesn’t feel like real life.”

Sundance 2013: Between Categories

Queer Spaces.

Michael Langan talks to Travis Mathews: a revealing exchange about how Mathews’ work operates in the space between categories.

“I like the in-between space because it leaves open the possibility of the unexpected while having some sort of map to refer to if it goes off the rails. I was voted “most unpredictable” in high school, so there you have it. .”
