His son died of a GHB overdose. Can a cop

Welcome to Screen Gems, our weekend dive into queer and queer-adjacent titles of the past that deserve a watch or a rewatch.

The Elusive: 7 Minutes

This French thriller took us off guard earlier this year with its mix of drama, eroticism and intrigue. 7 Minutes follows Jean (Antoine Herbez), a  cop mourning the death of his party-boy gay son and his son’s boyfriend after a GHB overdose. A grieving Jean seeks out Fabien (Clement Naline), another circuit boy who knew the pair in hopes of finding some closure. Instead, Jean—who is straight—finds himself drawn into the circuit world of drugs, dance and wild sex. As Jean begins to experiment with GHB himself, his “investigation” becomes something far more sinister.

7 Minutes doesn’t pull punches when it comes to scandalous content. The film features extended scenes of graphic nudity, drug use and intense sex. Some viewers may find Jean’s actions inexplicable at a certain point–then again, that might be the whole point. The film doesn’t shy away from ambiguity. When Jean becomes addicted to gay sex himself, we’re meant to ask if he’s secretly gay, obsessed with his son, or just addicted to GHB. The movie lets audience members decide, right up until its non-ending. The finale doesn’t offer resolution or catharsis of any kind; rather, it just stops, leaving viewers with some very big questions they are meant to debate within themselves. Captivating, erotic and elusive, we recommend the film to viewers who need a bit of a palate cleanse from holiday sweetness, and to anyone mystified or repulsed by the world of circuit parties.

Streams on Amazon, iTunes & VUDU.

Kelly Ripa just posted a picture of Mark Consuelos in

Actress and talk show host Kelly Ripa just loves posting pictures of her family, especially as Halloween approaches. This year however, she may have her Instagram followers fainting from lust rather than fright: one image of her husband, actor Mark Consuelos, shows off the actor’s massive bulge.

“Halloween is a family business,” Ripa posted to Instagram, along with a roll of photos featuring her family. Followers that scroll all the way to the end get a glimpse–actually, more like an eyeful–of Conseulos’ package as he channels 1970s-era Erik Estrada from C.H.I.P.S.

We wonder how he is with body cavity searches.

Ripa’s made a habit of posting some very thirsty pictures of Consuelos, 49. The pair met on the set of the soap opera All My Children back in 1995 when he was cast as the love interest of Ripa’s character. The pair married in secret a year later, and continued to appear on the show together as series regulars until 2002. Today, they have three children together.

Have a look back at some of Ripa’s most classic shots. Have some water on hand…you’ll be thirsty.
