Originally released in 1992, Rock Hudson's Home Movies is a provocatively entertaining and hugely influential film essay from Mark Rappaport (From the Journals of Jean Seberg, The Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender). It uses a collage of film clips from throughout Hudson's career, and a winking performance by Eric Farr as a Hudson stand-in, to highlight the homosexual subtext in his work. Subversive, hilarious and profoundly enlightening, its use of video became a model for the future of film criticism as it mutated on YouTube, TikTok and beyond.

Kino Classics is also including some of Mark Rappaport's other brilliant investigations into film history on this disc. Included are Blue Streak (1971), an expansion of what a "blue movie" really means; John Garfield (2002), a concise portrait of the pugnacious actor, Sergei/Sir Gay (2017), an exploration of Sergei Eisenstein's sublimated desires; and Conrad Veidt: My Life (2019), an in-depth examination of the anti-Fascist actor who was famous for playing a Nazi in Casablanca.
