Alan Cumming, the outrageous and fabulous openly gay actor who has been on screen in everything from Cabaret to Nicholas Nickleby to X-Men 2 to Reefer Madness: The Musical, makes his solo directorial debut with Suffering Man's Charity. John Vandermark (Cumming) is a composer of much greater ambition than success, with a penchant for taking struggling young artist-types (or those willing to pretend) under his wing. His latest, Sebastian St. Germain (David Boreanaz from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel), abuses his hospitality, driving Vandermark to the breaking point. The confrontation that ensues truly puts the "psycho" in "psychodrama." The film is intentionally over-the-top, and definitely not to everyone's taste, but if you're in the mood for weird, this is pretty good weird.
