In last year's WATCH OUT, Matt Riddlehoover caused a stir at LGBT film festivals as a man so in love with himself that he has sex with a blow-up doll plastered with his own face. Now, in the character-driven, Woody Allen-esque dramedy BOOKENDS, Riddlehoover is somber and just as convincing as a man painfully and unrequitedly in love with a straight man. Slated to hit DVD later this year, BOOKENDS is Riddlehoover's follow-up to his gay-themed comedy TO A TEE that took MySpace by storm and revolutionized the way (gay and straight) independent filmmakers utilize the social networking site.
RETURN TO BABYLON is director Alex Monty Canawati's scary, sexy and often bitingly funny look at 1920's Hollywood and the scandals that rocked the silent-movie era. Hand-cranked and scored by piano true to form, Maria Conchita Alonso, Jennifer Tilly, Debi Mazar, Ione Skye and Tippi Hedren light up the screen in this saucy silent film that's screaming to be heard. BABYLON is an episodic film, stringing together the lives of scandalous Clara Bow (Jennifer Tilly), fiery Mexican film star Lupe Verez (Maria Conchita Alonso) and husband Johnny 'Tarzan' Weissmuller, ill-fated Virginia Rappe (Ione Skye) and rapist-muderer Fatty Arbuckle, Gloria Swanson (Debi Mazar), Rudolph Valentino (Alex Monty Canawati) and a host of others. TCM fans, rejoice!
The tragicomic biopic is sure to be a hit amongst paranormal enthusiasts as well. In the film, as well as here in the trailer (cut by Matt Riddlehoover), the star-studded cast will occasionally -- and mysteriously -- morph into unnerving and almost "Christ-like" characters in just single frames. The production was also allegedly haunted as actress Jennifer Tilly mentioned on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.
If that's not reason enough, you'll definitely want to see Tarzan's banana! Watch the trailer above!
