my favourite arthouse and gay movies

Boys in the Band [VHS]
Boys in the Band [VHS]
"A breakthough movie, very advant- garde for its time - I really related to each of the gay men. Us gays all have a little bit of each of the characters in us."
Love Valour Compassion [DVD] [1997] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

"Can Gay men really be friends without back stabbing  and hurting each other? I think this movie says it all!"

"A fantastic film from the 50's with the fabulous Dirk Bogarde. A very dark study of what it was like to be gay in a time when it was all very much a dirty thing."
Water Drops On Burning Rocks [VHS] [2000]

"This film is quite strange - the age old story of the older man and the younger boy, but with a female twist. A fantastic dance scene makes it worth the watching."
Torch Song Trilogy [DVD] [1988] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

"What a funny, fabulous film - The one liners alone are superb. I loved being gay after watching this movie. I am now an ardent  Anne Bancroft fan after seeing her in this No.1 Gay funny, smart,movie."
8 Women [DVD] [2002]

"Fraoncois ozon is my favourite Foreign movie director. Here is the most camp film of all time with music and 8 of the most talented French legends of all time. Superbe!"
The Killing Of Sister George [DVD]

"Beryl Reid is hilarious in this movie - I have never laughed as much in my life - She pulls of being a lesbian better than Ellen Degeneres ever could - Watch it and savour as she butches and swaggers."
Death In Venice [VHS] [1971]

"A very tragic, sad and beautiful film about the joy of beauty. Thomas Manns' book georgeously made into an arthouse movie - The soundtrack alone leaves you in despair."
Maurice (the Merchant Ivory Collection) [DVD][1987]

"Ahh James Wilby, is there any man more attractive? This film made me feel that being Gay was a beautiful, sophisticated and elegant thing.  The end leaves me in tears every time. 10/10. I love it !!!!"
In & Out [DVD] [1998]

"Do all gay people love Barbra Streisand? I do! And so does Kevin Klines' character in this hilarious movie about being true to yourself. Yes its much more fun out of the closet than in. Out and  Out!"
Jeffrey [DVD] [1996]

"A thought provoking film all about finding love - Getting the man of your dreams is great, but looking for him can be just as much fun. Patrick Stewart is award winning in this film."
Priest [DVD] [1995] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

"A very disturbing tale all round - though it has its odd funny moments. What a hateful choice - Religion or Homosexuality? Or both? This film proves how ugly the decision can be!"
La Cage aux Folles [DVD] [1978]

"French farce at its best - Camp, Hilarios and well acted. The remake version with Robin Williams is not a patch on this Cult Classic."
The Closet aka Le placard [DVD] [2001]

"What is it about the French that makes them such great observers of Life? This film is on the ball when it shows modern day attitudes to Gays. Plus its Hilarious!!"
The Naked Civil Servant [DVD] [1975]

"John Hurt is great in this true story of the memoirs of the very camp and witty Quentin Crisp - He had such nerves to live as he did in the early 1930's - An example to us all."

"Muscle men in drag - What a sight for sore eyes - But i loved it! This is as good if not better than the good old Priscilla film. John Leguiziamo is the show-stealer."
