Today Ray Hogan of the Greenwich Time has an advance story on next week’s Connecticut Film Festival — did I mention this thing is happening here in Danbury?
Anyway, Hogan makes mention of “Leave You In Me,” a film directed by Dutch Doscher of Stamford.
From the article:
One of the films bound to be discussed is “Leave You In Me” by Stamford director Dutch Doscher. In the 30-minute black-and-white film, the male and female stars perform the majority of the film in the nude. The movie examines a relationship that is on stable sexual ground but rocky in the emotional department.
Doscher, a freelance director for Deerfield Productions in Westchester County, says that he wanted to examine the physical versus emotional comfort level of a couple. “I haven’t seen a movie with a couple that is naked that wasn’t about sex,” he says. “Nudity is part of your daily life. In black-and-white photography, nudes are considered art. On film it’s seen as purient.”
Unfortunately, after the disturbing displays of male nudity in “Walk Hard” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” I will be protesting outside the “Leave You In Me” screenings, which are scheduled for Wednesday, 6 p.m. at the WestConn Student Center Theater on White Street and Saturday, 10:15 p.m. at the Heirloom Arts Theater at 155 Main St.
Please join me as I burn copies of “Wild Things,” “The Crying Game,” “Boogie Nights” and the complete works of Harvey Keitel.
