Review: "The Strange History of Don't Ask Don't Tell" Shows the Heroes and Villains of a Political Victory

19 September 2011 7:14 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

You know how you're working on some Glbt political cause, and the issue loses, and some a**hole Republican comes out and says something incredibly homophobic and bigoted? And it's all you can do not to scream at the top of your lungs at the television about how evil they are, but how you finally calm yourself down by saying, "We may have lost for now, but history is going to remember this, and in the end, we're going to win, and everyone will see the other side for exactly what they are!"

The new HBO documentary The Strange History of Don't Ask Don't Tell is "history" finally setting the record straight, at least on the issue of gays in the military.

This film, which was made by longtime out documentarians Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (Becoming Chaz, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, RuPaul's Drag Race), will debut tonight at midnight. »

17 September 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the policy barring gay people from serving openly in the military, should be history on Sept. 20. That’s when President Obama’s repeal of the law is scheduled to go into effect — and when a documentary on the controversial policy, The Strange History of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, premieres on HBO. The film, by directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), tracks the 17 years it took to overturn the policy — starting with President Clinton’s signature signing into law in 1993 and ending with Obama’s repeal in Dec. »

This Week In Trailers: The Last Rites Of Joe May, Island, Behind The Walls (Derriere Les Murs), Becoming Chaz, Blood In The Mobile

29 April 2011 5:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? Becoming Chaz Trailer Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato are the film equivalent of sociological documentarians. If ever there was a duo who have damn well »

'Becoming Chaz' review. Sundance, 2011: Personal story of Chaz Bono is riveting.

11 February 2011 2:08 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Becoming Chaz review at the Sundance Film Festival 2011: The personal story of Chaz Bono is riveting in 'Becoming Chaz' Chaz Bono shines as a riveting subject in documentary. (3.5 stars out of 5) If other documentary directors find their socio-political subjects from the headlines of The New York Times and The Atlantic, co- directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato pull their stories from Page Six and TMZ. Look at their standout docs, Party Monster (1999), about the murderous eighties club kid Michael Alig, The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2000), about the resilient televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker Messner and her husband Jim Bakker, Inside Deep Throat (2005), about the infamous and highly profitable porn movie and its impact on Hollywood, and it’s clear that Bailey and Barbato are a non-fiction team interested in unique celebrities and touchstone moments in America’s pop cultural and sexual history.

'Becoming Chaz' Sundance Review: Candidly Chaz Bono

28 January 2011 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Documentaries, Reviews, Sundance Film Festival, Cinematical, Festivals

The excellent documentary 'Becoming Chaz' is an engaging and educational look at one person's journey to make his outsides match his inside. The public eye has been on Chaz (née Chastity) Bono since he was a blond moppet on his parents' variety show, 'The Sonny and Cher Show.' Although Chaz officially came out as a lesbian in '95, it took him much longer to come to terms with his transgender identity. Despite his shyness and a lifetime of discomfort (to say the least) in his own body, Chaz opens up his life, his home and his history for this warm, moving and funny documentary.

Directors and executive producers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato ('The Eyes of Tammy Faye,' 'Party Monster,' 'Inside Deep Throat') have done an excellent job with the massive amount of information, »

My French Film Festival

Thanks to bids for Oscar consideration, the winter is traditionally one of the rare times foreign films get plenty of attention in the States, particularly at West Coast festivals such as Palm Springs and Santa Barbara.
