Which brings me to my problem. See, I'd very
much like to see Jacobi's "Breaking the Code,"
a movie that had somehow escaped me all these
years, but it's not available on DVD. We don't
have a VCR.
I did see "Breaking the Code", and I might even have recorded it to VHS from its PBS screening...but I'm woefully behind in my project of making a data base of all my videos (I'm up to 494 DVDs and over 500 VHS tapes; but I haven't even made a dent on the hundreds of laser disks, and the DVD-R's or the VHS tapes that I recorded off the air over the years.)
Anyway, I'm surprised that you didn't mention Derek Jacobi's most overtly gay film, the somewhat difficult and arty "Love is the Devil" where he portrays waspish, gay artist Francis Bacon and his stormy love affair with George Dyer (played as rough trade by the current James Bond, himself, Daniel Craig.)
