'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.

Frameline Interview: 'The Third One' Director Talks About His Sexy Cinematic Threeway

“The Third One” may seem slight, but this very sexy Argentine film about a ménage a trois that develops between Fede (Emiliano Dionisi), a college student, and a couple Franco (Nicolás Armengol) and Hernán (Carlos Echevarría) has deeper meanings. The film unfolds simply, and in three acts, with a coda. Franco flirts online with Fede; the couple invites Fede over for a meal; the men have sex. Then there is a morning after.

The Gay Teen at the Center of Harrowing Russian LGBTQ Youth Doc 'Children 404' Talks About How We Can Help

"In Russia, it's always homophobic," Justin Romanov, one of the gay teenager features in the harrowing new documentary about Russian LGBTQ youth, "Children 404," told me last week. "It's every day. It's every minute. It's all homophobic. When I came to school, I was always late. Because if I came to school before the lesson starts, people would harass me in the hall. They would call me 'fag' or throw stuff at me or spit at me. And they're told it's okay to do that. It's a normal reaction against gay people."
