61. My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) - Personal, 1980s - 7/10
A real nice film. I liked it, even if sometimes it felt abrupt or messy. The first kiss is so sudden, the end too, with the feeling that everything is unresolved. But I guess it's part of the movie, which doesn't really end, like if the characters will continue the plot when we exit the cinema (or the mkv file).
I won't spoil, just that the end, even if unresolved, is refreshing for a gay movie from the 80s.

62. Pariah (2011) - 2010s - 5/10
This movie has a lot of qualities, showing lesbians in a poor, religious and black neighbourhood of NYC. But I found it boring most of the time. The end, let's say the 25 last minutes, are what is the most compelling.

63. Pink Narcissus (1971) - 1970s - 7/10
An interesting avant-garde movie about a modern interpretation of the myth of Narcissus (you know, the guy who admired himself so much he drowned in a river while looking at his reflection). In here, it's a male prostitute, dreaming in a very poetic way. The colors, the music, the animation, all of it made this movie an original one. And of course, the eroticism is present all alone. Let's say it, it was a hell of a butt fest ! And I'm not complaining.


TV episodes
Also, as the Queer Challenge is still going on for two weeks and considering that I'm almost at the end of the BFI list, I decided to see some new episodes on TV shows so I could catch up a little bit. I won't count them each day for the challenge. I'll do a total around the end of next week (a few days before the end of the challenge) but, in order for everyone to be aware of the future points and to not surprise anyone, I'll put a list under spoiler tags with the date of each viewing and the runtime. :)

We've collectively seen over 250 different films so far, we might hit 500 by the end of the month if we keep up the pace.

Welcome to the new participants this week: Onderhond, pitchorneirda, and mjf314! (With ryebass waiting in the wings)

Congratulations to sol and flavo5000 for beating their previous personal bests in this challenge!

Prat is still the overall leader in both the main challenge and the bonus challenge, and it looks unlikely at this point that anyone will catch him. Anything can happen, though!

[...]

Prat's got a lead in the letters and decades categories, and there's a 5-way tie for first in the countries between Prat, jdidaco, Armoreska, peeptoad, and Fergenaprido. Armo has sole possession of first now with 8 (I had to track down Yo imposible first). We've now covered every country & region; who will be the first to go around the world?
Thank you for the update and for hosting the challenge !

Indeed, the game is still open, we are far away from the end of the month ^^ For the countries and regions, I planned to work on that too, but first, I want to finish the BFI list (15 movies to go).

Thank you again ^^

Discovering that her mysterious new girlfriend goes by an assumed name, a true crime podcaster begins to wonder if she is a murderess in this darkly humorous thriller. Sheila Vand is excellent as the mystery woman in question; from asking probing questions, to subtly eavesdropping, to having a secret locked box, something always seems a little off with her. Some nice ambiguity too - i.e. has the protagonist's obsession with true crime simply gone too far?

A young man fails to realise that his new boyfriend is a serial killer in this very dark black comedy. Matthew McKelligon is perfect as the boyfriend with creepy stares but also a disarming smile that makes him look more like a lost puppy dog than a sociopath. Jefferey Self also does well as the oblivious protagonist; his naivety sometime pushes the limits of credibility but it is amusing how he dismisses all of McKelligon's serial killer talk as morbid humour.

It took me over a decade to track down a copy of Bulgarian Lovers with subtitles. It ended up being not quite what I thought it would be, but it was still some campy fun. I'm glad I finally watched it, and I'm looking forward to more transgressive films from Eloy de la Iglesia.
Did you see that Severin Films has several Eloy de la Iglesia films coming out in August on blu-ray? They've got stand-alone releases of Cannibal Man and No One Heard the Scream and a 2-disc set that includes Navajaros, El Pico and El Pico 2. I'm pretty jazzed about them. I never would have expected a director like Eloy de la Iglesia would be given such big treatment on blu-ray.

You're participating in the Italian challenge? Based on your watches here I assumed you were bagging doubles for queer horror films tehe :P

No, I did not! I don't have a Blu-Ray player (and my DVD player is in storage and I don't have a modern hi-tech TV yet), so I don't really pay attention to new releases like that. But it's exciting that he's getting some attention! I've known about him for a while (mostly because I was confusing him with Alex de la Iglesia and mixing up their films), but he's definitely a director that seems underseen. Of his other films, I'm most interested in seeing Colegas, but I'm sure some of the ones you mentioned will be enjoyable too. :fingerscrossed:

16. Orlando (1992) (5/10) - Like walking through an art gallery. Inscrutable film for me. I’d like to give this a second watch at some point because I feel there’s more to see here.

Bonus game: Q+ (I’d say this one falls under non-binary) - 90s - UK

17. The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) (7/10) What a cast, everyone’s so gorgeous and talented. Stupid sexy Jude Law :verymad: . The plot was very complicated, and maybe there were one or two more twists and turns than there needed to be. But still an enjoyable film and I’m glad I’ve finally seen it.

Bonus game - Even though it’s on the LGBT official list I’m really not sure what to call this. I guess B, because Tom has flings with both women and men in the film. But I think he’s more Narcisexual than anything - 90s - USA
bonus game tracking
1. GLBTQ+ x2, B, Q+
2. pre-60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s (missing 60s and 20s)
3. Europe x2, Asia-Pacific x2, USA x2, Germany (missing a lot)
4. MBL

64. Michael (1924) - pre-1960s - 7/10
What a beautiful and awful movie ! Beautifully done, with some of Dreyer specialities like close-up to show emotions, and awful story with horrible people such like Michael and the princess. Very sad, moving film about a painter and his muse, Michael, who fall for a princess without money and the downfall of the painter. I recommand it.

65. Sebastiane (1976) - 6/10
The story of Sebastian, favorite of an emperor, sentenced to exile because he's a christian. I really had the impression that the whole movie is an excuse to show naked men fooling around. The movie is well done, there are some interesting parts, but overall, maybe seems a little pointless to me.

66. All Over Me (1997) - 1990s - 6/10
This movie is not "just" a movie about a teenage lesbian. It's more about the life in Hell's Kitchen with sad events. Drugs, murder, alcohoolism, abuse... The representation of LGBT is interesting with a lesbian heroin, gays and even an ambiguous young lady (bi ? straight ?). I liked this movie, even if it was TV-quality and despite the fact that the actors are unable to articulate (which was annoying).

67. Beautiful Boxer (2004) - 2000s, Thailand, Trans - 7/10
A true story, apparently, which is great, about a transgender boxer. Really beautiful movie, moving too, with a nice cast even if, yes, sometimes it's over-the-top, cheesy and easy. But this is such a beautiful story, so well done on screen, a movie that gives you hope and something we probably need to a better trans visibility (and by that, I mean a positive visibility).
TV episodes
Also, as the Queer Challenge is still going on, I decided to see some new episodes of TV shows so I could catch up a little bit. I won't count them each day for the challenge. I'll do a total around the 26th or 27th but, in order for everyone to be aware of the future points and to not surprise anyone, I'll put a list under spoiler tags with the date of each viewing and the runtime. :)

You're participating in the Italian challenge? Based on your watches here I assumed you were bagging doubles for queer horror films tehe :P
Yeah, pretty much every challenge that I participate in ends up being a horror challenge. :pinch: Seen some really great queer horrors though (i.e. worth it).

Unable to get a lady who she met at her wedding out of her mind, a married woman begins to explore whether she is actually bisexual in this genial British comedy. It is a premise with some potential and there are scattered good comedic parts. The basic idea tires long before it is over though. Much of the problem is that dilemma never really feels real; her husband is such an ineffectual dullard that we spend the entire film just waiting for her to realise this.

A young couple are kidnapped by a man in a cape and a lesbian vampire who wish to use them in a Satanic ritual in this weird little film. Intriguing as this might sound, this unfortunately has little going for it beyond the basic idea. Three quarters of it is just go-go dancers doing lewd dances with occasional commentary by the cape-man and vampire who talk about why the go-go dancers' souls are damned and discuss which ones they find the most attractive.

12-13. It's a Sin (2021 G UK)
A British miniseries about a group of young gay people embracing their sexuality and gay life in 1980s London. Inevitably, it becomes a series about AIDS. Fantastic acting all around (along with some awful production design -- I've never seen a less convincing mock-up of New York), but it feels like something's missing. The whole thing moves so quickly that it's hard for the characters to develop much depth.

14. The Times of Harvey Milk (1984 G USA)
A documentary about the San Francisco activist that focuses mostly on his brief time in political office, his murder, and the aftermath. It's decent enough, but I think it would have benefited greatly from a more detailed look at his life and the social milieu of San Francisco in that era. Randy Shilts' book The Mayor of Castro Street is a far better treatment of this topic.

15. I Killed My Mother (2009 G Canada)
The worst mother in Quebec and the worst son in Quebec scream at each other for 100 minutes. Plenty of good movies have been made about poisonous family dynamics (Autumn Sonata comes immediately to mind), but they tend to have nuance and strong acting. This movie has neither.

This frequently feels unsure of what it wants to be - a satire of Old Hollywood, maybe a satire of education (since she takes a job teaching gender roles in Hollywood film), or perhaps a look into the difficulty of a transgender woman navigating a hetero-normative world. There is certainly quite a bit of interest going on in the movie in any case with frequent cutaways to other films (including a lot of Laurel & Hardy footage), plus a delightful Mae West in full form.

Second viewing of this and I don't have much to add beyond the music being catchier (especially at the end) than I recalled. There are a few amusing parts where the thing turns into a TV commercial with trans actresses, but most of what we see just feels random. The low resolution print available though certainly does the project wonders with male genitalia and female breasts in the mix that aren't obvious at first; a bit of a perceptions thing if you will.

I caught that on MUBI when it did its tour of duty there. At first, I was all "Boobs! Yay!" and then very shortly after it devolved into "THIS gets a nice film restoration?!? Wouldn't almost any other film be deserving of that effort?"

Bo Burnham's new special is somewhat gay

note all the extra minutes if I need to patch something up in the future:

41-43. Yagate Kimi ni Naru (Bloom Into You) 6/10 - 13eps - women romance slice of life again
44-46. Sasameki Koto 4.5/10 - 13eps - yes, another women romance slice of life that's watchable
47. She’s Real (Worse than Queer) - added this punk music docu to IMDb
48. Boy Meets Girl [2014] 4.5/10 T, cringeworthy
49. Bixa Travesty - Brazil, docu. way too much self deprecation and acting weirdly for me to enjoy. also, genitalia are on display.
50. Alice Junior 5/10 T, Brazil, dramedy
51. Lingua Franca 5/10 T
52. Beautiful Boxer 6.5/10 T for Thailand
53. Дылда (Beanpole) 5/10 ah yes russian misery porn
54. Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria
55. Venus Boyz - T, docu
56. Soldier's Girl 7/10
57. Red Without Blue - T, docu
58. En Soap 7/10 - T, Denmark
59. Princesa [2001] 5/10 - T, we're in obscure indie territory here
60. Ang pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros (The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros) 4.5/10 - Philippines
61. Tout contre Leo (Close to Leo) 5.5/10 - G, did they actually throw fireworks in a crowd of hens? adding this to the animal cruelty list
62. The Curiosity of Chance 7.5/10 - G
63. The Sum of Us 7/10 - G
64. Trembling Before G-d - Israel, docu but it's in English

I'm not really trying to do the world challenge, but what do I need to complete it now? i think Israel is covering something.

1.Nighthawks (1978) 6/10
The telling is as flat as the apparent experience of being a gay male in 70's Great Britain; our main character isn't very interesting or sympathetic, so it is a bit jarring when he is confronted by his obnoxious students in the latter half of the film and is forced to stand up for gays more generally. The style is interesting and it feels like a pseudo-documentary in parts (the classroom scenes in particular).

2. Querelle (1982) 6.5/10
There were times where I felt that something profound was transpiring (and perhaps I just needed to sit with it for a while), then the rug was pulled out with dialogue that is -though clearly quite intentional- so silly and squarely vulgar that I was left laughing at the absurdity. Despite having a raised eyebrow throughout, I will say that I found the characters compelling, so there was success on some level here, though a bit of a wreck overall.

3. Pride (2014) 9/10
Wonderful, life-affirming et al. Predictable, but...in a good way? Sometimes a story simply fits a formula and it isn't the story's fault. Loved everyone in this.

Intriguing as this might sound, this unfortunately has little going for it beyond the basic idea. Three quarters of it is just go-go dancers doing lewd dances with occasional commentary by the cape-man and vampire who talk about why the go-go dancers' souls are damned and discuss which ones they find the most attractive.

Oh yeah - I recall you watching (and managing to count it for some challenge) back in the day, but I couldn't remember what your opinion of it was. The film is still streaming on MUBI since it's now part of their "library" - and that's a fair comment. The fog effects and graveyard setting look excellent in the restored print, but the film does so little with its visuals. They must have spent their entire budget getting that ONE location looking as spooky as possible.

With local police on strike, fascist bigots decide to the kill the patrons of a gay bar; when a victim escapes, they attack the residents of an apartment building who are sheltering him in this Canadian thriller. The set-up predates the likes of The Purge. Alas, the focus of the film is never them debating whether or not to help him, but rather on the innovative ways they fend off those trying to attack them. Mostly feels like a low-lit Death Wish sequel.

71. Stud Life (2012) - 7/10
This movie is not perfect, but it's a fine movie about love with a butch lesbian and her gay best friend. Sometimes, the plot or the lines are really simplistic, but it works. The characters are nice, the movie explores some aspects of LGBT lives. I liked it.

72. A Single Man (2009) - 6/10
The story of a man who lost the love of his life and his decision to end his own life... Will he do it ? Well, in fact, I didn't care about that. The cast and the plot are good, but I couldn't feel any sympathy, maybe because the movie is so focused on its own aesthetics that it sometimes forgot the feelings (except attraction to others). Still a good watching.

73. Siempre sí (2019) - Chile [South America] - 2/10
Awful.

74. Oliver (1983) - Philippines - 6/10
A fine documentary about an impersonator of Liza Minnelli, mix between drag queen, performer, and nude dancer. What was interesting is the link with his family, his story, the world of the night, the male prostitution (and even pedophilia). I think it was interesting without blowing my mind. The last scene with the spider web, though...
TV episodes
Also, as the Queer Challenge is still going on, I decided to see some new episodes of TV shows so I could catch up a little bit. I won't count them each day for the challenge.

It was the Banned Films challenge. I had to look it up. But yeah - they saved money by not hiring writers, I can only assume.

7. Naked Violence (1969) 99 min.
8. The Feels (2017) * 88 min.

I'm getting tired of movies with yuppies bitching about their terrible lives. The Feels reminded me of a lesbian version of the recent The Rental, so I was hoping a serial killer would show up, but no such luck. Some good performances, but the concept and writing needed more work.

Naked Violence did provide a killing. The homosexual relationships were related to the crime but were presented in a matter of fact way, utilized in the plot without the sort of moralizing that you would have almost certainly heard in an American movie of the period, or later. The focus of the movie is the investigation of the crime, without the detective needing to prove his heterosexuality by ridiculing or blaming a victim or explaining a crime as an inevitable result of the sexual perversion of a perpetrator.
Spoiler
1. The Half of It (2020) * 104 min.
2. Girl (2018) * 106 min.
3. Yossi & Jagger (2002) * 65 min.
4. But I'm a Cheerleader (1999) * 85 min.

21. Beautiful Boxer (T 2004 THA) - 7.5ish
22. Machboim [Hide and Seek] (G 1980 ISR) - 7ish
23. Bwakaw (G 2012 PHL) - 7.5ish
24. Cola de Mono [Monkey Tail] (G 2018 CHL) - 6.5ish

Beautiful Boxer started out pretty badly, with questionable acting and writing, mediocre production value, and a general dullness. I almost turned it off after 15 minutes. But strangely, the filmmaking seemed to mature along with the character, and the portrayal of Toom is the best part of the film. Always sensitive to the feelings of the character, never feeling exploitative, and having some pretty great fight scenes. This grew on me over time, and it really was a groundbreaking piece of cinema in my mind: The film came out less than 5 years after the events in the story (with one person playing herself!), didn't feel sensationalized, and came from a country, while seen from Western eyes as liberating and sexually adventures (especially with regards to transgendered folk and "ladyboys"), which was/is still rather conservative. Overall, a job well done.

Hide and Seek is much less queer than I was led to believe, and I'm going to change the summary on imdb since it gives a false impression of what to expect. It's much more about the coming of age of a boy and his friends in post-WWII British Mandate of Palestine, before Israeli statehood. Trying to fit in, trying to be old enough, trying to be brave enough, and trying to heal from the wounds inflicted on them by the Holocaust, all jumble together in a cauldron of confusion. The heart of the story (and what is marketed as the central conflict, but it's only the secondary one in my mind), is the gay teacher. Purportedly the first "gay" film from Israel, a country in modern times which is well-known for it's acceptable of queer folk and a vibrant queer cinematic culture, this 40-year-old film gives insight into a time before this. Food for thought: the time difference between when the film was made and when the film was set (~32 years) is less than the time difference between now and the year of release (41 years).

I've wanted to see Bwakaw since it first started showing at the festival circuit a decade ago. Miraculously (thanks to Santo Entierro, no doubt), it popped up on Netflix a few months ago. A variation on the theme of "old gays" seen in Hollywood, and coming between the release of Beginners (2010) and Love Is Strange (2014), this is less polished and shiny than either film, but it feels more grounded. Not that the other two stories are more fanciful or less moored in reality, but this one was grittier. Starring an icon of Pinoy cinema (Eddie Garcia) with some notable supporting roles (including Rez Cortez - Insiang's boyfriend Bebot from the 1976 film - who reminds me of Malaysia's Harith Iskander), the bitter exterior of an old gay man who came out late in life slowly crumbles away after his beloved dog falls terminally ill. More drama than comedy, but it's moments of black humour are devilishly delightful, and had me cackling throughout.

Cola de mono is billed as a drama/thriller, but I found it much more drama with only brief thrills. Full frontal male nudity and some explicit oral sex may deter many folks, but there's much less of it than the marketing would have you believe. Roughly split into three parts, I've seen people discount the first part as boring, but it was my favourite by far, probably because it's the most narrative. More aesthetic and moody are the second two parts, which are also sexier and gayer. Like, cruising in the park and bathhouses gayer. Some questionable writing choices (the film is partially autobiographical), and starring real life siblings as the two brothers, it has it's highs and lows. The best was probably the music of Chilean band Upa!, who I'm now going to explore more, with a great song serving as both the opener and the closer (Creo que voy a morir [I Think I'm Going to Die]).

Only 4 more films to complete the country bonus challenge, and I've finally finished the letter challenge. Might double or triple that one now.
I also caught some short films, but not enough for a full point yet.

Insane midnight movie with Pat Healy. So damn much fun. The teenage daughter is a lesbian and her relationship is a major part of the plot.

09) The Novice (2021, Lauren Hadaway) - 4/5

Oh yeah, I forgot that The Novice easily qualifies. I watched it the other day at Tribeca. Isabelle Fuhrman is a queer freshman on the rowing team who is dangerously obsessed with making the varsity boat. It's female Whiplash and she's both Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. Great flick, I really think Fuhrman could win the Oscar.

At its best, this is a remarkably cinematic treatment of the material, with some excellent dissolve-heavy flashbacks that show Liz Taylor's face and her memories at the same time as she recounts what she saw (see above). Generally speaking though, this is much more of a melodrama than a psychological thriller and there is something to be said for the Production Code resulting in much of the story's sordidness and queer-related content left largely implied.

Revisited for the first time in over a decade, this Teorema style comedy mildly disappoints. The basic idea is quite juicy, focusing on a charming young man who seduces and manipulates those who stand in his way while attempting to improve his social standing - much of which involves sexual exploits with no regard of gender or age. The lethargic pacing never quite feels right though and knowing whether it is all going, it feels incredibly protracted upon revision.

I have successfully failed to stay under 50 despite that being the initial goal.
sorry about that.
gonna have to indeed drop back to limiting myself at 111.

65-70. Pose ep1 - 80min
Pose ep2 - 71min (here is where i need those 20min scraps from last post)
Pose ep3 - 60min - fur references & clothes =(
Pose ep4 - 60min - AIDS episode. humans love sex so much they would risk death and suffering. funny to me who's at the extreme end of that spectrum.
+ep1 of Antique Bakery (G) - dropping it
Pose ep5+6 - ah yes, nonconsensual semi-irresponsible polyamory
Pose ep7+8
71-73. Hit & Miss 4.5/10 - 6 eps - done with TheStonyField's list of Trans and non-binary portrayals. 3 not found. 1 postponed.
There's a scene where a boy crossdresses but our trans character tells him he will grow up to be a boy fo sho.
Same episode the boy also questions the ethics of vivisection in class!
However in the next episode there's cringy pro-natalist drama.
Another pro is an instance of "fuck the police" quote.
It seems a premise like this might stoke fires against trans women, what with her being a killer.
So yeah hit & miss indeed
and it ends on a massive cliffhanger
he or A. or Armo or any
