Good movies?

Raining_Cloud's picture

Does anyone have any suggestions for good movies in the Lesbian/Gay genre? I've already seen "But I'm a Cheerleader!" (one of the best movies EVER!!!), and I'd like more suggestions, please *spacey grin*

A few picks

"Lilies" is a fantastic movie. It won a whole bunch of awards at either Cannes or Sundance (I can't remember which--hell, maybe both!) It's a French film, so be ready for that (instead of Hollywood), and it stars two of the most gorgeous boys with equally as gorgeous bodies you've ever seen. Yum! :-D

Some other favorites include:

* Edge of Seventeen
* Beautiful Thing

And even though it's not GAY gay, I really like "Billy Elliot" too. That's just a cute movie all around, with enough gay elements to keep even the bitterest of us old queens happy. :)

Some people's kids...I tell ya!

Hmm, most have been listed, but Frida is a damn good movie too.

I actually did a research pro

I actually did a research project on Virgina Woolf a few months ago for school, so I knew her history and character pretty well going into the movie. It made it easier to watch, knowing her, and knowing the book "Mrs. Dallowy" a little.

my enduring love for VW...

...my favorite part of the movie was, quite honestly, the beginning: the voice-over you hear as she walks into the river is made up of VW's actual last note to Leonard. I thought it was poignant.

It also might be worth reading Cunningham's novel, to get a better sense of what the point(s) was(were). I loved the film, but it's really different from the book...

If you like foriegn films, Ai

If you like foriegn films, Aimee & Jaguar is excellant. It's the true story of a nazi mother and a jewess who fall in love during WWII. Sad, but good.

Chasing Amy's an awesome film in it's own right, especially if you're into the Kevin Smith films.

I also have to second But I'm a Cheerleader. Funniest gay flik I've ever seen!

Foreign films...

I'm sorry, I thought Aimee & Jaguar sucked. The book's better. The movie was cheeeeeesy.

Try another German film, Lola + Bilidikid. (Which I can't find anywhere in NYC, but perhaps I haven't been looking hard enough...)

The Wedding Banquet is a grea

The Wedding Banquet is a great movie. Absolutely hysterical, and even my dad who hates subtitled movies, loved this one. And it's not all subtitles, just some, as it's set in California with a white guy as one of the gay couple. Just bits and pieces in Chinese.

Get Real, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Better than Chocolate, Full Monty, Boys on the Side, But I'm A Cheerleader, The Children's Hour (1961), If These Walls Could Talk II, Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love, It's In The Water, Show Me Love (Swedish), are all great.

And why does The Wedding Banquet get the long description? Cuz I was lucky enough to catch the tail end of it the other day. LOL
