These shots of Birdman director Alejandro G. Inarritu and Foxcatcher helmer Bennett Miller were taken during last September’s Telluride Film Festival. It’s occurred to me that male-on-male physical affection doesn’t happen much in my realm. I used to hug my sons a lot, of course, and my male friends in my 20s when we all got drunk together. But these days I never do anything more than brief hug-pats. Forget any kind of sustained arm-over-the-shoulder thing. Inarritu was apparently the instigator here. I think Latin men are a little warmer and more open in this regard. Miller and I come from a similar-type gene pool — emotionally cautious WASPs, not that touchy-feely.
