Rock Hudson’s Home Movies (1992) is a provocatively entertaining and hugely influential film essay from Mark Rappaport (From the Journals of Jean Seberg). It uses a collage of film clips from throughout Hudson’s career, and a winking performance by Eric Farr as a Hudson stand-in, to highlight the homosexual subtext in his work. Subversive, hilarious, and profoundly enlightening, its use of video became a model for the future of film criticism as it mutated on YouTube, TikTok and beyond.

Kino Classics is also including some of Mark Rappaport’s other brilliant investigations into film history on this disc: Blue Streak (1971) is an expansion of what a “blue movie” really means; John Garfield (2002) is a concise portrait of the pugnacious actor, Sergei/Sir Gay (2017) is an exploration of Sergei Eisenstein’s sublimated desires, and Conrad Veidt—My Life (2019) is an in-depth examination of this anti-Fascist actor who was famous for playing a Nazi in Casablanca.


DVD Extras Include:

BONUS FILMS BY MARK RAPPAPORT: BLUE STREAK (1971, 9 minutes)

JOHN GARFIELD (2003, 16 minutes)

SERGEI / SIR GAY (2016, 36 minutes)
