There are many, many things to be excited about regarding the 125+ films already announced for this September's Toronto International Film Festival (Terrence Malick, "Cloud Atlas," Sally Potter, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," Ken Burns, "Anna Karenina," a new film starring Winona Ryder, etc, etc), but I think a film among today's announcement is the kicker:

Dear Janet Miss Jackson (I’m nasty), How unfortunate it is that your family drama has spilled inartfully into the public domain. I’m sorry to say this isn’t new. Squabbles in the Jackson family over money, power, access, and crazy are as old school as “I Want You Back.” Far be it from me to cast judgment or try to understand a very messy situation from which I’m wholly removed. And I do wish your family a speedy and satisfying resolution.

Watch 'Vito' Tonight on HBO

A new addition to the canon of great LGBT rights documentaries, Jeffrey Schwarz’s “Vito” -- which debuts on HBO tonight -- is a passionate look at the life of Vito Russo. Russo is probably best known for the 1981 book about the representation of LGBT people in Hollywood, “The Celluloid Closet” (which was adapted into the 1995 documentary by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman). But he was also a remarkable figure in the early gay rights movement, and the fight against AIDS (which he succumbed to in 1990). Using interviews with Russo’s family and peers as well as wonderful archival footage, Schwarz gives Russo’s legacy the documentary it deserves with “Vito.”

There are two huge, delightful surprises in Dan Fishback's new play "The Material World," playing Fridays and Saturdays all July at Dixon Place's HOT! Festival for queer performance. One is that the play, which has an anachronistic set-up at the heart of its absurdist drama treats those anachronisms (Madonna, Britney Spears, a cyber-activist all are renters in the house of a family who left Russia during the pogroms) exquisitely. More on that later.

In the midst of considerable publicity surrounding his coming out last week, Frank Ocean performed the song "Bad Religion" on Jimmy Fallon last night and holy shit was it ever good. Off his new album "Channel Orange" (available on iTunes today), the song features the lyrics that at least in part led to his coming out (they discuss his unrequited love for a man), and it was likely the first time most people ever even heard it performed.

I have watched the theatrical cut of Kenneth Lonergan's "Margaret" several times between its brief original release in September and this spring. If you know me, I've probably sung its praises to you many times. I love it, and at this point, I have the entire movie pretty much memorized.

Last night on his personal Tumblr, the 24 year-old OFWGKTA rapper posted this intensely personal and poetic depiction of the first time he fell in love. Two weeks before his solo debut album is set to release, and just days after Anderson Cooper's announcement to the public, awaking this rainy July morning I couldn't help but find myself overjoyed to notice a little rainbow appearing behind those clouds . . . a huge congratulations to Frank Ocean, and here's hoping the rest of the month has in store such delightful surprises as this. from Ocean's tumblr: "we’re all a bunch of golden million dollar babies. my hope is that the babies born these days will inherit less of the bullshit than we did. anyhow, what i’m about to post is for anyone who cares to read. it was intended to fill the thank you’s section in my album credits, but with all the rumors going round.. i figured it’d be good to clarify.."
