What a Difference a Gay Makes

What a Difference a Gay Makes: Reflections on New Queer Cinema by Aisling Dolan. Hollywood has always had a very strange relationship with homosexuals. From the very beginning of the silent era the subject has been taboo. It was not a topic to be discussed publicly or privately, and never ever positively. However the insinuation […]

Crash! Bang! Wallop! What an interview

By Josh Roberts You might not know the name Armando Iannucci, but the chances are you will have seen at least one of the hit TV shows (such as I’m Alan Partridge and The Thick Of It) or his Oscar nominated film In The Loop. He’s won three BAFTAs, two Sony Radio Awards, three British […]
