The hype-machine is up and running and it’s time for more QFest reviews! We also want to give you another reason why YOU should attend this year’s festival.

The following three films each bring something unique to QFest and they’re the kind of movies you won’t see at your local megaplex: two raunchy gay-sex comedies and an indie-lesbian romantic comedy.

Who would ever have thought that 44 years after its 1967 premiere, we’d still have this little round-headed kid singing his litany of complaints to audiences who seem very happy to see him. It’s odd that in the late 1960s, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown would have resonated with a population in turmoil, but perhaps that’s exactly why it did.
