"A Moment of Innocence by Mohsen Makhmalbaf (on dvd). It's about Makhmalbaf, an Iranian-Islamic militant as a teen who stabbed a policeman and went to jail. Decades later he becomes a famous filmmaker, and then a man comes up to him and says, "I'm the cop you stabbed. I want to be in one of your movies." They made a film about what happened, and this is it. It's stunning. I love Life in Cartoon Motion by Mika (cd), a really fun glam-pop singer with a beautiful Freddy Mercury-inspired voice. It's all the rage in the UK right now. Then there's my Nashville movie poster from Poland (from a New York store called Posterati). It's my favorite new purchase."
John Cameron Mitchell is the director of Short Bus and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. His forthcoming film, Oskur Fishman, will be out later this year.
