Directed by Jason James and written by Jason Filiatrault, Entanglement is an odd comedy about a man trying to kill himself after the woman he loved cheated on him and left. His wanting to die leads him into therapy as one would expect but also on a quest after finding out he almost had an adoptive sister. While looking for her, more about him is shown and his character is developed as an oddball who is oddly relatable and who is trying to survive against his own judgment of himself. The character is attaching and he is one that annoys at first and eventually grows on the viewer. The way this is written and put on screen makes the character feel human while still a bit odd while the entirety of film has a very specific feel to it that is hard to pinpoint but works for the story at hand.
On this episode, we will be exploring the evolution of LGBT cinema and the film world’s historic progress (and ongoing challenges) in presenting gay and lesbian characters and LGBT-themed subjects. Our guest is actor/comic/social commentator Kevin Dolan.
