The Sexy Beast is right to put Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis at the top of their list of hottest lesbian scenes in film — the scene between them in Black Swan really is something to talk about. Not as hot as, say, Gia, but you’d have to be crazy to watch Gia for the sex given the subject matter. We won’t ruin it for you. Go Netflix it. Anyway, guess who wasn’t crazy about this scene?

Our friend George Griffith has been slaving on From The Head, what could possibly be the indie flick of the year, about a bathroom attendant in a New York City stripclub based on Griffith’s own experiences in the mid-90s.
