Spring Fever and Sherlock Holmes

In my latest column @ Towleroad I'm covering gay interest films at Cannes including Lou Ye's (Summer Palace) new provocation Spring Fever which IndieWire is likening to a Chinese Shortbus for its explicit apparently unsimulated gay sex. There's also a bit on the ongoing interweguments about how much "bromance" we'll actually witness in the new Sherlock Holmes. Jude Law does like to play with his sexuality onscreen. He's such an actress in that way.

Nath, Do you head the good response of "bright Star" at Cannes? The critics said is too cold, but the film is very likely and Wisham and -especially- Cornish are contenders for the acting prize. This is the real return of Jane Campion after "The Piano"

Unfortunately, "Spring Fever" was in no way at all comparable to "Shortbus". Just sad and depressing. And sex scenes? Explicit of course for Chinese movie standards, but there was no way telling if they were unsimulated. no dick in the picture, if I may be so blunt.
As for the campion movie: just wonderful. And wishaw is even better than cornish! Greetings from Cannes, Patrick
