THE PRETTY BOYS

WaterBearer Films (2012)

Featuring copious sex, drugs and rock and roll (and that's just in the pre-credit sequence), The Pretty Boys swings to its own queer beat. Writer-director Everett Lewis' 1973-set period piece concerns Pagan, a shirtless, pansexual, drug-addled singer-songwriter. He's smitten with hunky Donovan, probed by an ambitious journalist and drugged by an evil groupie. Unfolding as a double LP, Pretty Boys meanders from seductive and weird to wild and tender. -Gary Kramer, Instinct Magazine

SKIN & BONE

Distributor TBA

 

Now considered a 'queer classic', this wide ranging film forces sexual boundaries and emotional complexities while challenging the viewer as it pushes through the veneers of conventional society and conventional filmmaking. S&B follows a young actor as he slowly allows himself to be stripped--literally and figuratively. His desires corrupt and ultimately devour him.

 

 

AN AMBUSH OF GHOSTS

Distributor (1993)

A very beautiful and lyrical meditation into the trauma that can befall a family when it's spiritual anchor is torn away from it's foundation. Stephen Dorff and Geneivive Bujold give fantastic performances as a son and mother whose grasp on reality as we know it is being stripped away piece by agonizing piece. This film shares the same type of foreboding atmosphere as 'Donnie Darko' and 'Seven'. I think maybe it was a bit too ahead of it's time to pick up a distributor at Sundance in 1993.

 

 

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF PARKING LOTS

Distributor TBA

Exploding onto the independent scene in 1990, Everett Lewis's Parking Lots has an urgency and a momentum that years ago ushered in the films of the French New Wave. Emotionally complex, yet framed within a simple narrative, the story explores the relationship between the adolescent Chris, a car thief, and his older brother Lance, a drug dealer and gun runner, who are struggling to rise above the fringe, fast-lane world which surrounds them.
