Documentary
Tucson native Kirby Dick chronicled the shockingly shady practices of the MPAA in 2006’s This Film Is Not Yet Rated, and in his follow-up, he takes aim at certain right-wing politicians: By day, they vote to deprive gay and lesbian Americans of equal rights, but by night, they cruise bars, call chat lines and sometimes even get arrested for soliciting sex in a men’s room stall. (Yes, you, Larry Craig.) Contradicting footage of powerful white family men dismissing persistent rumors of homosexuality are interviews with members of the more liberal-leaning media who are out to expose the harmful hypocrisy. Dick also hears from well-known gay politicians like Rep. Barney Frank and former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey, who provide a bit of necessary sympathy for those obviously suffering under the burden of duality. However, when Washington Blade editor Kevin Naff correctly observes that “everyone loves a good outing,” he ain’t talking about a trip to the beach.
