Brother to Brother
how brilliant was this film when i first saw it! the cast, including anthony mackie, dainel sunjata, percy boutte and anjonue ellis, is an embarassment of riches. evans' visual style is like jazz for the eyes. i hope he is shooting his follow-up to this very successful feature.
Paris Is Burning 1990,  R)
Paris Is Burning
livingston's documentary is still a stunner after some 20 years. it is a source of personal heartbreak as well but i can't tell it because it's a spoiler. so see it, get to know and i'll share.
Faustrecht der Freiheit (Fox and His Friends) (Fist-Fight of Freedom) 1975,  Unrated)
Faustrecht der Freiheit (Fox and His Friends) (Fist-Fight of Freedom)
fassbinder films usually leave me cold. but not fox and his friends. it is so well acted and well paced. and theyoung actor david kross remonds me very much of the lead in this film. the more yo look at him, the more you love him.
Coming Out 1991,  Unrated)
My Life in Pink (Ma Vie en Rose) 1997,  R)
My Life in Pink (Ma Vie en Rose)
this sweet little whimsical film is a delight! it's funny, and ultimately touching on a very personal level. it addresses a lot of touchy aspects of gender with a light touch and mananges to be thought provoking.
The Aggressives 2004,  PG)
The Aggressives
this is a fantastic little documentary that pushes a lot of buttons about gender. i loved it!
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)
Pixote: A Lei do Mais Fraco (Pixote) (Pixote, the Law of the Weakest) 1981,  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)
Velvet Goldmine
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 2006,  R)
felicity huffman was totally robbed of many an acting prize in 2006. she gave a brilliant performance in this well-done film about a male-to-female transsexual's journey across america with a young, apathetic that holds than his fair share of angst.
Midnight Cowboy 1969,  R)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday 1971,  R)
Wonder Boys 2000,  R)
Proteus 2004,  R)
Outrageous! 1977,  R)
Go Fish 1995,  R)
Go Fish
guinevere turner is a one luscious actress, as she displays in this film and the next on my list. but this film was lensed on the north side of chicago and it will always be high on my list for giving some light to chicago's lesbian scene.
The Watermelon Woman 1997,  Unrated)
The Watermelon Woman
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.
