Top Customer Reviews

By Furio on 10 Nov. 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
The author is English and it shows, not only in the sometimes annoying idioms (some of which were not to be found in the Oxford dictionary which is usually quite comprehensive as far as slang goes) but also in his attention to British and European output. Said attention was not as thorough as it could have been but it is there.

The premise, where he explains his method for selecting the top fifty, is clear but a little dull and could use a revision.
A thorough revision could also take care of the many typos that pepper the whole book and are sometimes disrupting.
The author mentions that his PERSONAL top 50 would be different: as one buys a critical essay to experience someone's opinions it would have been good (and feasible) to put within brackets the "personal" ranking, giving the reader a further element to evaluate the films.

The film reviews vary in conciseness and effectiveness but are all useful.
I think cinema aficionados will probably profit to a somewhat limited extent from them, but the collection still has its use for young persons willing to explore gay cinema or for older people such as myself who are no film experts but wish to do the same.
As e-books do not bear the brunt of printing expenses I would take the top 50 to a top 100 in a second edition.

HASH(0x99aa3cc0) out of 5 stars interesting 22 Sept. 2013
By Lorraine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
this is a very interesting book that went into depth about these movies and I discovered interesting points that I did not know - even though I only recognised about half the movies. I enjoyed the vibrancy of the writing.
HASH(0x99510d68) out of 5 stars A nice book of reviews 27 Jan. 2016
By C. Counts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A nice book of reviews, but the film selected are hardly influential by any stretch...nor is any attemopt made to explain why any particular film was important. More of Jason Shaws list of "My Favorite LGBT Films".
