Gayby 2012, Unrated)
It's absolutely adorable and well acted by Jenn Harris and Matthew Wilkas. It's really campy regarding to the storyline and the fast paced dialogues, but it did not fail to make me laugh all the way through and felt really touched by the relationship of all the characters. I really can see all the characters in my life because it's a film that uses real people and real settings. For an independent film, it's highly enjoyable and didn't even look budget at all. It's really well done and will certainly become a cult classic.
Bittersweet and very funny. This Aussie flick proves that Australia can produce great films. The film was a positive representation of the drag queen which was very rare at it's time. All the talks about the sexism and racism was ridiculous, I do not understand why the critics focused only the whory Cynthia. The film was great, the leading characters all wowed me with their abilities to push boundaries. It may not have been done very tastefully, but it's great fun.
East Side Story 2006, Unrated)
This has to be the best reinterpretation of the classic Romeo & Juliet (with a different ending though) I love the play on West Side Story and transformed it into a gay Latino version, it's really well done. The acting was so superb from all the cast memebers, it also has excellent camera works and script. Don't forget the sountrack, simply amazing. The characters all had interesting development over the course of the film. It's a film that focuses on the Latino culture and the family unit. Each one of the characters learnt something from the experience of love, pain, conflict and salvation. Not a master piece but really well done.
Trick 1999, R)
This is like the best queer cinema gem without any sex, loved the quirky characters and music in the film. The film did not rely on hot actors or fabulous jokes. Just the simple and raw acting was used to bring about the meaning of finding true love. It's such a beautiful film, I loved Christian Campbell and John Paul Pitoc. Tori Spelling was so cool, she played her bitchy character well. The film is so realistic, it's really engaging. One of those films that I would watch it over and over again.
Adam & Steve 2005, R)
I love this film, it's excellently written with good wit. Some scenes and timing were uneven but generally good. A very funny film that pokes fun of pop culture and satirical. I can't stop laughing throughout the film, although I didn't quite like the toilet humour being used in the beginning. Adam and Steve are gonna be a good couple. Everyone did a great job in the film.
Rubber 2011, R)
It's not an ordinary film that you would be expected to watch. The head explosions were absolutely amazing, and there were like heaps of them :D The tire itself has a really good control that made it looked like it is indeed alive. There are so many scenes that made me burst out laughing. The storytelling is quite unique, I loved the surrealism. You either love it or hate it.

Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds 2006, Unrated)
Were the World Mine 2008, Unrated)
First of all, this is a really clever film, why wouldn't someone try to make a love potion? This is one of the sweetest independent film I've seen, the numbers were really good, sung by talented cast. Secondly, the acting by Wendy Robie saved the entire film, without her this would be another cheap looking film, but she really proved her acting ability. The gay guys couldn't act straight, that's I am saying. I am sure we've all learnt something today. Clap your hands if we'd be friends.
Broderskab (Brotherhood) 2010, Unrated)
One of the most beautiful films I've ever seen, I loved it to bits. Everyone acted so well in the film, the story was cross over of American History X and Brokeback Mountain with an anti climax. I was just so glad to see such an amazing film, blending two of my favourite genres together. Well Done Nicolo Donato!!!!
All You Need is Love - Meine Schwiegertochter ist ein Mann 2009, Unrated)
The Craft 1996, R)
The Little Shop of Horrors 1960, R)
No Skin Off My Ass 1992, Unrated)
No Skin Off My Ass is by far one of the best cult films I have seen. The film was shot in black and white, contrasting music (including a song about "Hot Skinheads") montages consist of weird camera angles that represented the mixed emotions of the protagonist. The film starts of in a Mondo Trasho like fashion with no dialogues and only lyrics to display the main theme of the film. The opening sequence seems very flimsy and peeping tom like, it was very artistic I must admit. I really liked the rapid jump cuts that really made you feel like you are having this massive crush on someone.
Tank Girl 1995, R)
Yossi and Jagger 2003, R)
This Israeli film has got all the love and charms you need to feel good when you are down. Set in the Isreali Defense Force, you've got two soldiers that are closeted homosexuals that cannot express their love to each other, on top of this, the hardship of war made their situation even tougher. It's a cute independent drama that features adequate acting and a bitter sweet ending.
