Jackie Boy will be having a one-week theatrical engagement May 5-11 at The Royal Cinema, 608 College St, Toronto.

There comes a time in most of our lives when we meet someone that will change the course we are on.  Sometimes that person saves us from ourselves at the precise moment we need it.  They can make us examine the path we’ve been on and the consequences of our destructive actions.  Director Cody Campanale’s Jackie Boy examines the cost of paying for past mistakes and being unable to emotionally process the difficult moments in our lives in this rough and gritty debut.

We are back again for the 2017 edition of the Hot Docs Film Festival reviewing films, and keeping an ear to the ground to see what has audiences buzzing. Last year’s festival screened two of the nominees for the 2017 Best Documentary Feature Oscar including the eventual winner OJ: Made in America, so there’s no doubt that once again the year’s best docs will be on full display.

Inside Out 2016 Review: Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo

What immediately catches everyone’s attention about Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo is of course its on-screen depiction of sex.  Opening with an unsimulated 18-minute orgy scene in a gay sex club, the film makes a bold and provocative statement about modern gay life.  The content never crosses the line of being exploitative or pornographic but it’s not for the faint-hearted.  When two men make an unspoken connection in the midst of this unbridled passion, a bond is formed that propels them towards the destiny they’re meant to share together.  Through spontaneous adventure through the streets of Paris and intimate conversation, they share experiences that will tie them together forever.
