Nightmares and movies

I'm reading a big book about the Al Quaeda boys and their American counterparts. Sometimes my job takes me to places I would rather not go, and knowing a lot about Al Quaeda is clearly going to be one of the things that happens to me, like knowing more than I care to about the Shoah. Collapse )

'Unveiled' reminded me of just how sickening it is that queer asylum seekers are liable to be sent back to their deaths because it is so hard for them to prove that their lives are at risk save by their being killed. One of the political exiles has the best line, though, something about a German bureaucrat asking him to produce a notarised copy of his death sentence.

I promised to talk about Backstage and there is a limit to how much I can say without spoilage. You really need to see this movie, especially you jennyo because it is wonderfully trashy and camp and sad.

And I am still behind, and there is a lot I want to say about the Trannyshack film.
