As part of a month-long retrospective of Todd Haynes's work, the American Film Institute's Silver Theatre presents one of the earlier films from the somewhat subversive queer filmmaker. Velvet Goldmine (1998) stars Christian Bale, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Ewan MacGregor as a rock journalist and two wild rock stars, respectively. Set in 1984, the film takes its musical cues from Roxy Music, David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed, among others. It's a wonderful film, brilliantly directed by Haynes -- and it's very, very, very gay. Saturday, May 7, at 10:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 8, at 9:40 p.m., and Monday, May 9, at 9:30 p.m. AFI Silver Theatre, 8633 Colesville Road, Silver Spring. Tickets are $11 general admission.
