Queering the Future of Animated Films: When Will Pixar Join the Party?

I recently re-watched "Wall-E," my favorite Pixar movie, and was struck as always by the simplicity of its premise and the great complexity of the world it builds. The cockroach companion was still cute, the fat-baby humans living aboard the spaceship Axiom still poignantly disturbing, and the notion of a salvageable planet still uplifting.

'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.
