Time makes a classic
In the wake of 'Brokeback, studios open vaults
re-release distinctive queer-themed films
By Steve Warren Contributing Film Critic
While new DVDs come out every week, they
can hardly compare with some classics that are
being released this month.
Well, they can compare favorably with
"Making Love," but it's of historical interest as
the "Brokeback Mountain" of 1982, a ground-
breaking romance for its day in which Harry
Hamlin and Michael Ontkean couldn't quit each
other, even though one of them was married to
But "Dog Day Afternoon," "Midnight
Cowboy" and "Breakfast at Tiffany's" should
be in any queer's permanent movie collection.
The iconic image from "Dog Day" (two-disc edi-
tion, $26.98, Warner Home Video) is of A1
Pacino leading an "Attica!" chant, but lest we
forget, he was in the midst of robbing a bank to
finance his lover's (Chris Sarandon) sex-change
"Midnight Cowboy," (two-disc edition,
$29.95, Sony Home Entertainment) directed by
the late gay John Schlesinger, had Dustin
Hoffman saying, "I'm walkin' here," but his
best/only friend was Jon Voight's title character,
who came to New York to be a gigolo, not know-
ing his clients wouldn't all be women.
"Breakfast at Tiffany's" ($19.99, Paramount
Home Video) is only gay between the lines, but
the lines were written by Truman Capote before
he got cold-blooded. It's a sensitive story of a
Southern girl who moves to New York and rein-
vents herself as Holly Golightly. Audrey
Hepburn is as good playing the inner Capote as
Philip Seymour Hoffman is as the outer version.
But now we move on to the wannabe classics of
Mistaken sexual identity is at the heart of
"Cote d'Azur" ($24.99, Strand Home Video) a
farce from personal and professional partners
Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau
("Adventures of Felix"),
It's his parents, Marc (Gilbert Melki) and
Beatrix (Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi), who think their
teen son Charly (Romain Torres) is gay. Beatrix
doesn't mind, but Marc is having enough trouble
dealing with their daughter (Sabrina Seyvecou)
running off with a biker. He doesn't want to think
about his children sleeping with men, so it's best
he doesn't know Beatrix also has a male lover,
ORIGINAL QUEER COWPOKE: "Midnight Cowboy," the oniy
X-rated film to win a best picture Oscar, gets a 2-disc
DVD release on Tuesday.
Mathieu (Jacques Bonnaffe), who surprises her
at the family's Riviera vacation home.
Also visiting is Charly's tres gai friend Martin
(Edouard Collin), the reason his parents think
Charly's gay. The boys respect each other's ori-
entations and neither crosses the line, but Charly
gets curious one night and follows Martin to a
cruising area, where he meets Didier (Jean-Marc
WHICH BOY IS GAY? In "Cote d'Azur," Martin, left, and
Chariy's close friendship sends mixed messages.
Secrets and surprises come spilling out after
that, until things end happily — nay, giddily.
Ducastel and Martineau have created a fine
light entertainment that any open-minded adult
can enjoy, while those who can't: envision a
world where sexual orientation is no more
important than hair color will see it as a horrible
Directed by Kirby Dick ("Sick: The Life &
Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist") and
partially photographed by the subjects them-
selves, "Twist of Faith" ($24.98, HBO Home
Video) is a strong entry in the pedophile priest
