Bad Timing: Kevin Spacey's 'Coming Out' Apology To Anthony Rapp Stuns Fans


Kevin Spacey Anthony Rapp

As allegations of sexual harassment within Hollywood continues to grow, Kevin Spacey becomes the latest to have the finger pointed at him as Anthony Rapp comes forward about an encounter when he was just a young teen. To make matters worse, Spacey's apology has equally shocked the internet.

Nobody should ever feel as if they can't talk about their sexuality freely and openly, but sometimes coming out is completely the wrong response to a situation. 58-year-old Kevin Spacey has decided to confess that he's gay in the same breath as apologising for making sexual advances to 'Star Trek: Discovery' star Anthony Rapp when the latter was just 14, and many are accusing the older actor of archaically conflating homosexuality with paedophilia.

Do You Take This Man? Trailer


Daniel (Anthony Rapp) and Christopher (Jonathan Bennett) are a gay couple preparing for their wedding. It should be a happy time, especially as they are surrounded by their closest friends and family, but there's some tension in the air that's threatening to break them hours before they are due to exchange their vows. They are very different people after all; Daniel is 40-years-old and Christopher's in his early 30s. Their friends are from different walks of life and they most certainly have a different approach to life. Things take a tumultuous turn when an unexpected arrival comes to surprise Christopher, it's Daniel who is the most shocked. They're supposed to be spending the rest of their lives together, so how does he not know about this stranger when everyone else in Christopher's life does? Secrets and jealousy are driving a wedge between the engaged couple, and with all their loved ones reminding them of how much their marriage is going to change their lives, they're starting to wonder if this really is the right thing to be doing.

Dazed And Confused Review


Extraordinary
This film started a number of careers, and it's definitely a classic and a high moment in the career of director Richard Linklater (also known for Slacker, the disappointing Before Sunrise, and the new Waking Life).

It is an entertaining fictionalization of high school graduation weekend of the senior class of 1976 in Linklater's former home city of Austin, Texas. Jocks, rednecks, cheerleaders, stoners, frosh, and the other high school demographic groups are all lovingly and respectfully rendered on Linklater's canvas. Though I didn't graduate until the mid-'80s, I'm pretty sure that the amount of pot smoking is this film is not exaggerated. And as evidence of the director's commitment to brutal realism, Foghat's "Slow Ride" is heard not once, not twice, but three times before the end of the movie. Rock on.

Rent Review


Excellent
Whatever happened to the glut of movie musicals that the success of Moulin Rouge and Chicago was supposed to have unleashed upon us? Although the door for the long-moribund genre was indeed nudged open by those films, it fortunately never opened wide enough to subject us to the like of Mamma Mia! The Film or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: Reloaded. Instead, studios have been fairly scrupulous about what they'll let through, and with the arrival of Rent, that's proved to be a good thing.

When Chris "Mrs. Doubtfire" Columbus was announced as the director of the evergreen 1996 rock musical - which updated Puccini's starving-artists opera La Bohème to the East Village in the late 1980s - it seemed like a bad joke. Spike Lee and Martin Scorsese had been buzzing around the project for years and getting the show's fans all excited, only to run into the usual budget/artistic/Miramax problems, not to mention a cast that was slowly getting past its prime. Handing the play over to the family-friendly Columbus seemed like admitting that the subject matter - a welter of squatting artists, homosexuality, heroin addiction, AIDS, and untimely deaths - was going to get watered down. Somehow, that didn't happen. While he's made the musical considerably cinematic, Columbus has also shown a surprising appreciation and fidelity to the source material; he should have tried directing something without children years ago.

David Searching Review


Weak
A young gay man is looking for purpose, happiness, and maybe even love in David Searching, but this low-energy no-budget effort never really takes flight. Why can't David (Anthony Rapp) find a soul mate? Maybe because he's such a self-obsessed sad sack.

A wannabe documentary filmmaker with no real current job, twentysomething David is both shy and repressed and quite unable to make it in the New York gay dating scene. He's a small fish in a very big and barracuda-filled pond. David gets most of his help and moral support from the fat and jolly Gwen (Camryn Manheim), who fills the film's obligatory fag hag slot and who is also seeking some peace of mind as her marriage unravels. David takes her in as his roommate so she's always to provide a wisecrack or a pat on the back.
