Wilde 1998, R)
this may not be the definitive film bio about oscar wilde but it is well designed and acted by its cast. its most arresting feature is the fact that its actors, particularly jude law and michael sheen, bravely go places that no american would have gone before a film like 'brokeback mountain' or 'milk'.
My Beautiful Laundrette 1985, R)
Prick Up Your Ears 1987, R)
Kiss of the Spider Woman 1985, R)
Maurice 1987, R)
james wilby, hugh grant and rupert graves do the lesser known merchatn-ivory 'maurice' well. it is a complex story but it is very emotional and pretty much realistiin its depiction of gay life among the british aristocracy. they weren't too fond of gay men back then(reference 'wilde' as well). i hope things have changed.
Velvet Goldmine 1998, R)
i'm not quite sure where to put this film. not since george cukor has hollywood had a gay director with such style and sensitivity. i love all his work (except i'm not there, which i'm still trying to understand). in spite of the sub-plot in 'far from heavon' this film is to me, his gayest work. the rooftop scene pretty much clinches that theory.
Transamerica 2005, R)

cheryl dunye obviously enjoyed herself as she told this story about a young filmmaker that delves in to the life of an obscure actress from the 1930s. that is what is missing from film these days. filmmakers need to play more and pontificate less. not be frivolous mind you--but play. there is a difference and that difference is what makes film fun to watch.
