Lovesong – QFest St. Louis Review

26 March 2017 5:57 PM, PDT

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Lovesong screens Wednesday, Mar. 29 at 7:00pm at the .Zack (3224 Locust St., St. Louis, Mo 63103) as part of this year’s QFest St. Louis. This is a Free screening.

Lovesong which opens QFest this year is an almost perfect little love story. Following Sarah (Riley Keough) and Mindy (Jena Malone) as they go on a road trip with Sarah’s young daughter. The film then jumps ahead three years to Mindy’s wedding. The women’s budding relationship is cataloged throughout the film.

Lovesong’s emotional palette resembles that of the euphoric last act of Best Picture winner Moonlight feeling at once calming in its emotionality but also intensely charged with passion. Each glance hits you like a freight train. Each touch holds a connotation of intense longing. Each word feels joyous, yet crushing. Lovesong is a film that plays with the similar emotions of unrequited »

The Boys In The Band – QFest St. Louis Review

26 March 2017 5:39 PM, PDT

Review by Mark Longden

The Boys In The Band screens Wednesday, Mar. 29 at 9:00pm at the .Zack (3224 Locust St., St. Louis, Mo 63103) as part of this year’s QFest St. Louis. Ticket information can be found Here

As well as new movies, St Louis’ wonderful Qfest (now in its tenth year) also shows classics of queer cinema that blazed a trail and inspire all sorts of different reactions today. “The Boys In The Band”, an off-Broadway play that was transplanted with the entirety of its cast to the screen, is one such. A review from a revival in 1999 said that, even at the time of its release, it had “the stain of Uncle Tomism”, and it’s been called a minstrel show. But it’s much more than that.

 Despite occasionally wonderful direction from William Friedkin (who made “The French Connection” the next year) , its origins as a stage play are very evident, »
