The Milwaukee LGBT festival continues through this week and provides another seven full days of high-quality programming that would otherwise never find its way to the big screen. Let me point out a few of the options available this week that I find particularly interesting. Tuesday screens the Andy Warhol/Paul Morrissey picture San Diego Surf. Edited according to Warhol’s notes after he was shot in 1968 this story of a couple whose troubled marriage is tested when they open their beach house to a bevy of surfers is a film well-worth checking out. Thursday sees the ‘poetically realized’ Moroccan film Salvation Armythat details a young gay man’s coming of age through a series of strikingly quiet vignettes, and closing night sees the Australian picture 52 Tuesdays come to town. Shot sequentially (only on Tuesdays for 52 weeks) with a non-professional cast, this could appear to be a gimmick, but its story of a transitioning mother and the daughter with whom every Tuesday for over a year is set aside for is said to have a cumulative power that is quite moving. There are many other options playing this week, so please do check out the website’s schedule and treat yourself to one of many wonderful evenings of great LGBT cinema!
