'Foxy Merkins' Director Madeleine Olnek: 'Independent film loses something by just being a cookie cutter experience.'

Madeleine Olnek takes one ice cube in her coffee. “It’s so good, it’s life changing.” She explains: “The drink should still be hot and have this little pool of cold. It should be a big ice cube. If they just have those tiny ice cubes that are like thirds then ask for another.” If that doesn’t convince you that we already have the lesbian Woody Allen, then go see “The Foxy Merkins,” playing during Newfest at the Walter Reade Theater tonight at 7 pm.

GLAAD Report: Hollywood Doing More Harm Than Good With LGBT Representations (Especially Paramount and Warner Brothers)

GLAAD released its second annual Studio Responsibility Index (SRI) today, and the news was depressing as you'd expect. The report maps the quantity, quality and diversity of images of LGBT people in films released by the seven largest motion picture studios during the 2013 calendar year, and found that of the 102 releases from the major studios in 2013, 17 of them included characters identified as lesbian, gay, or bisexual. Worse, the majority of these characters were minor roles or cameos, and GLAAD felt that many of them were outright defamatory representations in films such as "Pain & Gain" and Riddick".

Major Oscar Hopeful 'The Imitation Game' Gets Two Trailers But Both Skim Over Alan Turing's Homosexuality

Not one but two trailers came out today for Morten Tyldum's "The Imitation Game" -- surely timed to go with it being a part of the Toronto Film Festival's first major announcement tomorrow. The film aims to be a major player this Oscar season, and it sure has those goods on paper: Tortured gays who do amazing things have a pretty good track record in that regard.
