dg. Love, Simon (2018) - 8.4 - I was really fortunate to be able to catch this in theatres while I was in Estonia (it would never play in Malaysia; films like this don't get approved by the censor board). It's uplifting, hopeful, dreamy, and slightly unrealistic, but it's so heartwarming I don't care. It's the teenage romance we all wanted (though not the coming out story) that hit all the right notes. Even the straight friends I went with all teared up at some point. My only irk was the ridiculously precocious child chef sister.

dh. Quand on a 17 ans [Being 17] (2016) - 7.6 - a different sort of teenage love story. Not quite opposites attract, but definitely two people who come from different lifestyles. It was fine and all, but I still don't fully get why they started fighting in the first place (starting with the trip in class). I guess it was simply to get the plot rolling? It also felt like a very one-sided romance, which I'm not sure was intentional or a result of the acting/direction. Overall it's still good, though, and it's a gorgeous and unusual setting for a gay teen love story.

di. El auge del humano [The Human Surge] (2016) - 6.4 - very weird semi-experimental drama that features presumably straight young men in the first two segments who willingly engage in sex acts for money online (some surprisingly explicit stuff is shown), whether as a group or solo. Supposedly a film about millennials.

dj. Meng long guo jiang [The Way of the Dragon] (1972) - 6.4 - the main bad guy's #2 is not-so-subtly coded as gay, complete with effeminate gestures, flamboyant clothing, and a softer voice. He even gets to feel up the hero at one point.

dk. Una mujer fantástica [A Fantastic Woman] (2017) - 7.6 - didn't quite grasp me the way I thought it would. The story is compelling, but moves slowly at times, and I think not being trans myself means that I couldn't always understand the main character's motives, and I was puzzled by or frustrated with her sometimes. The way her partner's family treated her, though, was deplorable, and all too real. It's happened to may gay and lesbian women who's partners passed on and the families wanted to ignore that facet of the deceased's life. When will people stop being criminalized for simply wanting to live their life?

And after reading about Ich war neunzehn/I Was Nineteen, I discovered that the actor who played the lead character is gay in real life (still alive, in his 70s). I wonder if any of that went into his character, as I noticed Gregor and Vadim were particularly affectionate toward each other, and I wasn't sure if that was supposed to simply camaraderie during wartime or if there was something deeper implied there. However it was intended/read, it certainly was a tender relationship.

Still 10 away from a bronze on the cross-reference list.

Hi all!


Now that I can host multiple lists, I've been playing around with iCM Enhanced and believe I've figured out how to do a cross reference list (so that we can get an updated list). So I have some questions:

1) Does anyone know of any new LGBTQ... lists that need to be included in our original post?

2) How about list updates in our original post? Do any of the listed lists need an update on iCM?

3) Should we move any of the lists under "Also of note:" in our original post to the top section?

4) My plan is publish two updated Cross Reference lists - one that will serve as a 'master list' and include all titles on any of our un/official lists - those before "Also of note:" in our original post AND a Cross Reference list with a minimum number of inclusions. In the past a film had to appear on at least 3 lists to be included in the Cross Reference list: does this number still work for folks?
I can probably contribute more lists that I've found in the past few months. Not until mid-August, though, when I'm finally finished travelling and back in KL.
sounds great! I haven't played around with enhanced since I made the post, so it's no rush. Do appreciate any input folks have, however it seems interest has waned a bit since we got an official list.

hope you enjoy your travels!

Listen, Daddy. Teacher says, 'every time a car alarm bleeps, into heaven a demon sneaks.'

Speaking personally, it's not so much that interest has waned, but that effort has been spread a little thinner around here. The unofficial challenges I hit around here are pretty easy to spot (e.g., year-based), rather than theme-based, which can be harder to spot if you aren't overtly looking for them. I will say I'm really looking forward to the official challenge in October.

bonus. Lakki - Gutten som kunne fly (1992) I have always believed that this was about a 14 year old discovering he was gay. But after seeing this I'm not so sure anymore. He is self-discovering, yes. but there are no conflict of him possibly being gay, the conflict is just him being a teenager. There are other gay minor caharacters in the story but with no major relevance to the plot. So if the main character is gay would really have to read between the lines with a magnefying glass, so that's why I list this just as a bonus.
63. De Gales hus (2008)
SpoilerShow
One of the nurses are gay and had to turn down on off the pasients
64. Thelma (2017) Thelma have a relationship with a fellow student
65. Angels in America (2003) It's about homosexuality in the 80s. I have also seen this on stage recently and the impcat was a bit stronger there.
66. 8 (2012) Stageplay about Proposition 8 (same sex marraiges). Directed by Rob Reiner. Streamed live on youtube where it's still available.
bonus. Det norske hus (2017) One of the teachers really wnat to kiss the other teacher. But it's more for laughs, and not something the movie references later.
67. Love, Simon (2018) All know what this is by now.

dl. God's Own Country (2017) - 8.0 - beautiful film; this will show up on more 'Best Gay' lists by the end of the decade. Self-loathing, self-destruction, and redemption are common themes for queer films, and this one manages to turn an unlikeable hick into someone we genuinely care about and root for. It's the farm hand that steals my heart, though.

dm. 50 Ways of Saying Fabulous (2005) - 7.4 - an odd little Kiwi film, that I'm not sure how I feel about. Great acting by the kids, and great exploration of the themes of growing up gay and not really understanding it, or knowing that some people think it's wrong. But it does go all over the place, and some of the events come across as ridiculous to me. Still, a worthwhile watch.

dn. Crazy Rich Asians (2018) - 7.8 - yay! a female-driven Asian-filled cast in a mainstream studio film! And what do they do? Throw in a token gay friend/relative whose sole purpose is to dish out fashion advice in a sassy way and fix other people's problems. Good film overall, but this aspect left me disappointed.

do. Out in the Dark (2012) - 8.2 - This reminded me a lot of The Bubble, which depicts a similar relationship between an Israeli Jew and a Palestinian Arab (can't remember if they were Muslim or Christian in those films). This one is darker, though. Less lighthearted bonding with friends and more political thriller elements thrown in. Very good, if depressing. Really got me thinking more about the whole Israel-Palestine situation than other films I've seen on the subject.

Still 10 away from a bronze on the cross-reference list.

Hi all!


Now that I can host multiple lists, I've been playing around with iCM Enhanced and believe I've figured out how to do a cross reference list (so that we can get an updated list). So I have some questions:

1) Does anyone know of any new LGBTQ... lists that need to be included in our original post?

2) How about list updates in our original post? Do any of the listed lists need an update on iCM?

3) Should we move any of the lists under "Also of note:" in our original post to the top section?

4) My plan is publish two updated Cross Reference lists - one that will serve as a 'master list' and include all titles on any of our un/official lists - those before "Also of note:" in our original post AND a Cross Reference list with a minimum number of inclusions. In the past a film had to appear on at least 3 lists to be included in the Cross Reference list: does this number still work for folks?
I can probably contribute more lists that I've found in the past few months. Not until mid-August, though, when I'm finally finished travelling and back in KL.
sounds great! I haven't played around with enhanced since I made the post, so it's no rush. Do appreciate any input folks have, however it seems interest has waned a bit since we got an official list.

hope you enjoy your travels!
I'm back home and with more time now, so I'll work on some lists for you this month.

68. Car Wash (1976) One of the employees at the Car Wash is feminine homosexual. This fact is never ridiculed.

69. The Interview (2014) James Franco's character is bi. But like anything else in this movie, every plot point is a joke.
bonus. Superfast! (2015) Typical closeted gay comedy character. As she isn't main character as in The Interview I'll just add the bonus.

dp. tehe Nasty Baby (2015) - 5.6 - really, surprisingly, bad. From the director of La nana, which I liked a lot, but this time he gets in front of the camera. Didn't work for me. His brother plays his brother in the film (and was also the main son in La nana, fun fact). Wiig is solid in a dramatic role, but the film kind of meanders for the first hour, and then the last 20 minutes it goes batshit crazy. It seemed like it wanted to get really ironic in the part about the artists, but it didn't land for me.

xxx She's Out of My League (2010) - 7.6 - not counting it in my list because there's no real queer content, but I really liked how for a mainstream straight movie they didn't stoop to exploiting gay people for a couple of laughs, despite the scenarios setting up the possibility. This film got a lot of derision, but I quite enjoyed it. And Jay Baruchel is simply adorkable.

dq. Anders als die Andern [Different from the Others] (1919) - 7.2 - propagandistic film about homosexuality in interwar Germany. Surprised something like this even got made. Not a great film, overall, but amazing to see a film from 100 years ago portraying gay people in a positive light. Deserves to be more widely seen and discussed.

dr. Les beaux gosses [The French Kissers] (2009) - 7.6 - besides the pseudo-homoeroticism between the two leads, one of their teachers is gay and it comes up in the plot more than just a cursory mention. Mind you, I don't really know what it's like to be a straight male teen with a best bud, but I can't imagine them being so chill masturbating next to each other. Maybe it's because they're French? :p Europeans are so much more relaxed about sex than us North Americans. Le sigh. I wish I'd been brought up in that environment.

xxx Trainwreck (2015) - 7.6 - Don't really know what they were trying to do with Cena's gayish fuckbuddy, but I give him kudos to being 100% committed to the role. Not enough explanation of the topic to count in this list, though, and it seemed rather unnecessary.

xxx L'important c'est d'aimer [That Most Important Thing: Love] (1975) - 7.4 - odd erotic film, with minor gay/bi character(s) but not enough is done with them to warrant inclusion. Or maybe it was too nuanced for me to grasp.

xxx Neighbors (2014) - 6.8 - frat boys being homoerotic, girls making out to please boys. Nothing more than eye candy, really.


ds. Mass for Shut-Ins (2017) - 5.0 - not a very good indie film, but blissfully short (about one hour). Surprisingly contains queer content, but can't say much more than that without major spoilers, and I think it has more impact if you don't know what happens. It does make you reevaluate some of the characters/motivations in the film, though, so maybe it's worth a second watch.

dt. Belle Epoque (1992) - 7.8 - The lesbian plotline was unexpected, but they actually substantial enough that it didn't feel exploitative. Always nice to see in a period piece. Plus, there's a fun crossdressing scene.

du. Chun feng chen zui de ye wan [Spring Fever] (2009) - 7.4 - A rare film with (male) bisexuality on display, from China no less. Interesting plotline from a director I'm discovering (thanks Mubi). Was difficult to follow at times, but I think it's worth a watch.

dv. Hail, Caesar! (2016) - 7.8 - One character is a controlled queer, and you don't really find out who until toward the end of the film, but it changes the way you think about/interpret a scene or two from earlier. Very apropos for a period when open secrets were rampant throughout Hollywood, and you had to sleep your way to the top (wait... has that even changed?). Plus, fun wink in a scene within a scene about (not) gay sailors.

Still 10 away from a bronze on the cross-reference list. Maybe that will be a goal for October's challenge.

Didn't get around to those queer lists xian, sorry (got distracted by discovering new Canadian lists... my other major cinematic focus). I'll try harder this month in conjunction with the queer challenge.

Long post here, thanks to the official challenge this month.

dw. Coffee Date (2006) - 6.6 - Better than expected. Been on my watchlist for a while, and finally managed to locate a copy (though very grainy). An is-he-or-isn't-he tale (à la In & Out) that sets up the main premise with the titular blind coffee date that goes awry and takes it from there. Some cringey dialogue, ridiculous stereotypical characters, and questionable acting, but underneath it all it had a great message, and some of the situations the main character found himself in didn't seem that outlandish once I thought about it some more. Also, some good exploration of how people's perceptions of you can change when they think you have a new orientation, and how they try to mould you to meet their own expectations.

dx. Rak Lab Lang [Secret Love: Love Behind One's Back] (2014) - 6.2 - Thai TV film based on a true story. They might have even used the original voice recordings for the two scenes involving calling into the radio station. Not very good, but blissfully short (only one hour). Cute guys, though.

dy. Kater [Tomcat] (2016) - 7.6 - Interesting look at how the dynamics of a relationship can change unexpectedly. Worth the watch.

28. Taxi zum klo [Taxi to the Toilet] (1980) - 7.6 - Groundbreaking I suppose, but very odd. Not sure if I want to seek out the sequel. Still, some campy fun in a very German way. :D

dz. Die Mitte der Welt [Centre of My World] (2016) - 7.6 - Typical teenage drama, with some nice scenery, and odd backstory, and some questionable motives. Cute and sympathetic lead, though.

ea. Barcelona (un mapa) [Barcelona (A Map)] (2007) - 7.6 - Went into this thinking it was another movie (which I figured out later; same director), that is a series of two-person scenes. At times poignant, and other times strange, there are some key queer moments/characters in the film to warrant inclusion in this list. It may wander a bit, but I feel it really pays off in the final scene, which starts off a bit weird and ends up both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. Also, the film is mostly in Catalan (except for one scene, as best as I can tell), which is not very common to hear in Spanish cinema (from my experience/exposure).

29. Philomena (2013) - 7.8 - On it's own, this is a good film, and Judi Dench is always great to watch. But I don't appreciate the pandering and promotion of this as a 'gay' film. It's decidedly not, and to me does not belong on a list of Best Gay Films even if it does affect a large chunk of the plot. I went in expecting so much more on that front. They changed a bunch of facts from the real story, but reading on up it I can understand why, based on the narrative they were building. Doesn't take away from the rage that I feel at the Church for this and all the other wrongs they've done over the years. Being Irish Catholic is a significant part of my identity and how I was raised, but it also brings about a lot of feelings of shame and guilt. It's infuriating.

30. Plan B (2009) - 7.8 - After seeing the not-so-great- Ausente, this effort from Berger is much better and more of what I was expecting. I definitely plan to complete his filmography soon, if the rest of his features are as well done as this. Being his first feature (I think), the film quality is not as great as the other film, but the story and characters are so much more interesting and authentic.

31. The Servant (1963) - 7.8 - Another film that is great on it's own, but not really gay, or even queer. I know the source material was much more explicit, and they had to operate in code, but considering this came out AFTER Victim, I'm confused why they didn't stay truer to the book. As it is, it's a great psychological thriller, but not very queer (subtext or not).

eb. The Matthew Shepard Story (2002) - 7.6 - Watched this on the 20th anniversary of his death. I'm writing a personal essay of sorts about the incident, and how it affected me as a teen. This film managed to reveal new information that I'd somehow not known (like the fact that Matthew had been raped when he was younger), and while it definitely has that TV movie feel, it was still good (though, naturally, sad). I teared up the most when the angels came to stand outside the courthouse; so beautiful. Wanted to also watch Matt Shepard Is a Friend of Mine but didn't get around to it yet. I've already seen (and acted in a version at my uni) The Laramie Project. It's rather infuriating that major queer stories often don't get enough interest/support/funding to be released theatrically, and instead are relegated to TV just so they have a change to see the light of day (This and Laramie were tv movies, but also see Behind the Candelabra and An Early Frost for other notable examples).

ec. Les garçons sauvages [Wild Boys] (2017) - 7.4 - Weird as fuck, but mesmerizing in a way. I kind of enjoyed it. Can't really say too much about it without spoiling it, but this definitely should end up on the 366 Weird List some day.

ed. Spa Night (2016) - 7.6 - Underwhelming. I was expecting a lot more after the praise it received during the ICMFF last year. But still good, and it's nice to see an underrepresented community showing up in film.

ee. Is-slottet [Ice Palace] (1987) - 7.0 - Maybe I'd like this more if I'd read the book. Just average, to me, and the hints at budding lesbianism are odd. Someone else mentioned that it feels like the film started partway through the story, and I agree.

ef. Mów mi Marianna [Call Me Marianna] (2015) - 7.2 - I feel for the main subject, without really enjoying or caring about the movie, which is odd. I think the filmmakers could have done so much more to build a better narrative and make the film more compelling so that the audience would care more for Marianna and what happens to her.

eg. Louis Theroux: Transgender Kids (2015) - 7.8 - Really interesting TV doc. Never seen or really knew anything about Louis Theroux and his tv work in the UK. I could have spent another hour or two following the different stories of the kids and teens shown in this film.

32. Aimée & Jaguar (1999) - 7.6 - Decent WWII romance, with a lesbian twist. Based on a true story, and includes some footage from a documentary made about them as well. Recommended.

33. Keep the Lights On (2012) - 7.6 - Finally found a copy with subtitles for the Danish parts (thanks Kanopy), this was kind of okay. Sachs's films carry so much promise for me, but they don't always deliver. Still, managed to surprise me in some parts of the film, and it showed a part of gay hookups/romance before the modern age of smartphones. Also, nice to see some Danish actors getting more exposure in the US.

34. Beautiful Thing (1996) - 8.2 - REWATCH - Screened this film for my movie night at work, upgraded the rating from a 7.8 before. The film was a lot funnier than I'd remembered, and I just enjoyed it more (or maybe my rating system has improved a lot in a decade). Glad that the others who showed up also really enjoyed it. Too bad it's the director's only film.

35. High Art (1998) - 7.6 - The highest ranked film on my own cross-reference list of queer films that I hadn't seen yet. Sheedy is great, Mitchell is okay, and it's a young Gabriel Mann! Overall good film, good exploration of it's characters and their relationships (Patricia Clarkson can do no wrong), but ultimately fell short, and the ending didn't feel like part of the same film.

36. Teorema [Theorem] (1968) - 7.4 - As soon as I finished this I thought it must be on the 366 Weird List. Coincidentally, it was just added to that list last month. This is my first Pasolini film, so I had no idea what to expect except 'Stamp seduces everyone'. He doesn't really though, at least not overtly in a way that most of us would consider seduction. Definitely a film that makes you think, with some bold imagery. Not sure what I'll be in store for with future Pasolini films.

eh. Intersexion (2012) - 7.8 - Very nice documentary, that manages to be informative and interesting while staying personal. One of the better hidden surprises for me this month. Worth watching.

ei. Alex Strangelove (2018) - 8.2 - I really liked this one. In a year or two I will rewatch this and Love, Simon and see which one I like better. Simon is more polished and sweet, and kind of feels how I wish my teenage years had gone, while Alex is more crass and real, and feels closer to how my teenage years actually went. Sort of. Both great films.

37. An Early Frost (1985) - 7.8 - The AIDS TV Movie! Just after our sexual liberation of the '60s and '70s, HIV and AIDS (aka 'the gay plague') came along and gave the straights another weapon to make us feel shameful and dirty by making it seem sinful for us just to have sex. Because straight people got AIDS through no fault of their own (haemophiliacs, blood transfusions, from a parent during birth, etc.), but we got from buttsex and therefore we deserved it (also, drug users deserved it too). So infuriating. The more information through film, literature, and websites that I find out about the AIDS crisis and how people responded, the angrier I get. And I still haven't seen How to Survive a Plague. That may send me into a righteous fury.

ej. Rih essed [Man of Ashes] (1986) - 7.6 - An acclaimed Tunisian queer film? Indeed! The copy available isn't that great, and the subtitles sometimes feel like something is missing, but I enjoyed this. The queerness is not outright like you would see in a modern American or European film, but it's discussed or hinted at fairly freely throughout and I'm surprised at how frank the film is. Another pleasant surprise this month.

ek. La piel que habito [The Skin I Live In] (2011) - 7.8 - Almodóvar does well again. While maybe not as enjoyable as his campier films, this oozes with atmosphere, and the queer part of the plot creeps up on you slowly. Less horror-y than I'd expected (thankfully) but still a horror/psychological thriller for me. Visually resplendent.

el. (A)sexual (2011) - 7.2 - A meh documentary about asexual people. Made me pause and think about them more, but I don't think it really changed my general opinion on the matter.

em. Bande de filles [Girlhood] (2014) - 7.6 - Another great film that's not as queer as it purports to be. This even competed for the Queer Palme. Great storytelling about the lead character, and so much is left unsaid (the opening scene when the girls are coming home from American football practice where they were tough and gritty and they're all talking a mile a minute to each other in a big group of 10-15 or more, and then they walk by a group of guys and they all fall silent... glorious statement there). The last 20 minutes are rather confusing and somewhat rushed for me. Maybe there's another cut around?

en-i. Pink Moon (2015) - 7.0 - another role reversal short where gay is the norm and heteros are persecuted. Not bad.
en-ii. Y yo a ti [And I Love You] (2016) - 5.6 - positioned as a gay short but it's very ambiguous and comes across more as close friendship.
en-iii. Aceito [ I Do] (2014) - 7.8 - fun short about a marriage proposal that doesn't go quite as planned.
en-iv. Home(less) (2016) - 7.0 - good subject, strong leads, but ultimately felt hollow despite it's running time.

eo-i. We Once Were Tide (2011) - 7.6 - short and bittersweet. Decent, but nothing outstanding.
eo-ii. Eric (2004) - 6.6 - I've already forgotten the plot.
eo-iii. Pretty Boy (2015) - 7.8 - touching film with a fair amount to say. Not the best script, but still compelling and it didn't feel too long despite being 32 minutes.

Only 1 away from unofficial bronze on the cross-reference list now. I'll get it before the end of the year.

Ok, I haven't even opened the cross-refence list. Just finding LGBT-movies I want to watch

Anyway:
64 checks on the cross-reference list since the challenge started
127 in total

About 120 titles not on the list

And tomorrow I'm watching Girl
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8254556/reference
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/girl-2018/

and Bohemian Rhapsody, so that's 2 more. Both in cinema.

I'm really interested in seeing Girl once it becomes available. Bohemian Rhapsody is playing here soon, but I'm 99% it will be censored in some way (some friends saw A Star Is Born and that was censored even), so I think I'll just wait until it makes the rounds online instead of seeing a butchered version of it. Enjoy!

A censored A Star is Born? I know it's R-rated in the states, but here it's PG-6 (yes, really) and no films have been cut here in 20 years.

Anyway, maybe I should mention Halloween (2018), maybe as subtext (I didn't count this in the total in the Official challenge, so it's very, what if...)
SpoilerShow
Michael Myers usually don't kill children. He has many possibilities to do both in the 1978 ans 2018 versions, but shows no interest.

But he might be a homophob. There is a 12-year old kid that tells his father he'd rather focus on his dancing that go with hs father hunting.
And he gets killed, as the only child.
I'm not saying all dancers are gay (I know for a fact that they're not), but Michael Myers might think that. So the only kid he kills, might be gay.

sounds great! I haven't played around with enhanced since I made the post, so it's no rush. Do appreciate any input folks have, however it seems interest has waned a bit since we got an official list.

hope you enjoy your travels!
I'm back home and with more time now, so I'll work on some lists for you this month.
:)
Okay, almost three months later than intended, but here's what I've got.

These are the lists that I use to populate my own cross-reference list that I track in excel (list not on icm yet, sorry). Added notes for context where I could.

Tier 1 - Essential Lists (from queer sources)
The Backlot Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies (2014) - 100 films ranked, user poll, narrative films only.
AfterEllen Best Lesbian/Bi Movies (2012) - 51 films ranked, user poll, narrative films including miniseries.
The Backlot Top Gay Docs (2012) - 25 films ranked, user poll, documentaries only. [Last 25 films of the list]
The Advocate Top 175 Essential Films of All Time for LGBT Viewers (2014) - 175 films ranked, curated list, no TV films, no miniseries.
Metro Weekly Gay Films Everyone Should See (2012) - 81 films unranked, revealed in three parts.

Tier 2 - Best Lists from queer sources
Out Magazine's 50 Essential Gay Movies (2012) - 50 films unranked
Autostraddle's The 100 Best Lesbian Movies of All Time (2015) - 102 films ranked
Time Out's the 50 Best Gay Movies: The Best in LGBT Film-making (2015) - 50 films (including 1 collection of three shorts) ranked, user poll.
Indiewire's 50 Most Important LGBT Films Since Stonewall (2015) - 51 films ranked, user poll (plus 1 miniseries)
BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival's Top LGBT Films of All Time (2016) - 107 films ranked, user poll [Official List on iCM]

Tier 3 - Best Lists from other sources
Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies (2012) - 50 films ranked.
Flavorwire's 50 Essential LGBT Films (2013) - 50 films unranked, curated list.
Slant Magazine's The 75 Greatest LGBT Films of All Time (2016) - 75 films unranked
Awards Daily's 101 Years of Gay Cinema (Most Important) (2013) - 111 films unranked, user poll that was then expanded and then curated.
212 Essential LGBT Titles - CFB LOUNGE Edition (2018) - 215 films unranked, user poll.

Tier 4 - Interesting Lists, but not "Best"
101 Must-See Movies for Gay Men (2005) - 101 films, curated list from a book.
Berlin Film Festival Teddy Award (annual) - 32 films thus far, feature film winners only [icm list missing 2018 winner]
Venice Film Festival Queer Lion Award (annual) - 12 films thus far, feature film winners only. [No icm List yet... I'll add one this week I suppose Added!]
Cannes Film Festival Queer Palm Award (annual) - 9 films thus far, feature film winners only [iCM list includes short winners]
Huffington Post Uplifting LGBT (2013) - 45 films, curated list, films that are uplifting and celebratory only.

My cross-reference list counts the number of time a film appears on any of the 10 lists in the first two tiers (ignoring the ranks) and sorts by that. Tie-breakers are sorted by appearances on the 10 lists in the last two tiers.

I also keep track of my progress on previous versions of the above lists (2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012 versions of the Backlot/AfterElton feature film list, 2014 version of the Indiewire list, and 2013 version of the Slant list).

I've considered adding one of the Celluloid Closet lists to Tier 4 (either the list of films from the book or from the documentary).
I've also considered adding the Out Movie Guide, but it's nearly 700 films long. MovieDearest seems to have stopped adding new reviews, though.

Other Lists on my Queer Watchlist - for various reasons I have decided to exclude these lists from my tracker, but I still find them somewhat interesting and thus have bookmarked them. I´ll let you decide if they merit being added to your new cross-reference list. In no particular order:

The Internet film club: February 2014 LGBT Cinema watch list (2014) - 76 films, just a list of films they decided to watch that month, as far as I can tell.
Erik's Recommended GLBT Films - 399 films, personal favourites.
Out at Criterion - 20-21 films, very tiny list that is essentially a filter for queer films from Criterion.
Queer/Art/Film - 35 films, an eclectic list with a bunch of films missing, hasn't been updated in some time.
Top 50 Films of Queer Cinema - 50 films from RYM, based on average ratings, hasn't been updated in 2 years.

Not a 'best of' list for inclusion, but a good reference is the TLA Releasing - Distribution company list, since the vast majority of what they release is LGBT+.
And another list that seems to simply be a collection of eligible titles instead of a curated list is one covering New Queer Cinema.

Our iCM Forum list (that I know you don't like :lol: ) - Top 100 and All 809 Films, but I'd like to run the poll again either in 2019 or 2020 with more inclusive participation. When that happens, I'll add the list to my own cross-reference tracker.

And I've added two lists for queer films on official lists on icm (which I try to keep up to date, but some films I'm not aware of... just added two right now: The Embalmer and Multiple Maniacs; also noticed two formerly official checks regained official status, but I'll wait for the adoption of the new lists before I update again)
Queer Films on Official iCM Lists
Queer Films on Official iCM Lists - Dropoffs

Plus, there's the original cross-reference list from 2011 (which I dislike for only including "serious" films and excluding those that are "targeted toward a homosexual audience") and it's 2014 update (which is better).

And, of course, brokenface's cross-reference list.

Thanks. I'll add them. Don't know how I missed Tillsammans, since I was already familiar with that one, but the rest are all new to me aside from Is-slottet which I only saw last month and assumed was already on the list.

Well it's on the 400 list, so it will drop out eventually.

With Män som hatar kvinnor you might as well add the remake The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

And two currently in cinemas and on 2 list
A Star is Born (2018) - G and T
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) - G

38. Persona (1966) - 7.0 - I didn't read in to any queer/lesbian subtext here, even if it's supposed to show their personalities merging, and it's supposed to be subtle/coded. I don't think it merits a place on this list, and I'm baffled why it's here (I'm also baffled on the critical acclaim, but that's at least somewhat more explicable to me). A rather underwhelming film to achieve bronze on this list.

ep. Mannen som elsket Yngve [The Man Who Loved Yngve] (2008) - 7.8 - A good depiction of teenage angst and confusion, though you wanted to punch the lead character in the head sometimes, even if you may have not done differently in his situation. Now I'm more curious to see the other films, because it seems like this is the only one with any hint of queerness, despite it being so integral to the plot. Also not so satisfied with the ending, but I'd be interested to read the book this is based on.

eq. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) - 7.6 - Despite the internet's complaints at dequeering/queerbaiting Dumbledore, for me this film was an excellent depiction of addressing it in a subtle/coded way that made it clear where things are headed. I'm looking forward to the future instalments not only to revisit the world and see the fantastic creatures that dwell in it (the best parts of the film), but also to see how this relationship is addressed.

er. Der Knochenmann [The Bone Man] (2009) - 7.0 - The queer storyline didn't feel superficial or exploitative, but it didn't feel fully fleshed out either.

es. Double Happiness (1994) - 8.0 - For some reason I thought this was a full-on queer film, but the queerness turns out to be much less substantial, and boils down to a single scene with a few passing references throughout the rest of the film. That being said, it is a good film.

39. The Gay Divorcée (1934) - 6.6 - Another example of a non-queer film showing up on queer lists. Plus, it's not very good. I'm not having much luck with these Fred and Ginger affairs so far.

et. Crash (1996) - 7/0 - Bisexual crash victims fetishize vehicles and each other.

eu. The Adjuster (1991) - 7.2 - Second film in a row featuring Elisa Koteas as a bisexual polyamorous man well-versed in the art of seduction. Instead of car crash victims it's housing fire victims who he encounters through the insurance company he works for as an adjuster (hence the title of the film, which I didn't understand before).

40. How to Survive a Plague (2012) - 7.2 - I was expecting a lot more from this one. I don't know, it just felt distant and underwhelming, and didn't really express the urgency and tragic loss of the era like I thought it would.

ev. Cha và con và... [Big Father, Small Father and Other Stories] (2015) - 7.2 - The queer plot is one of a few, but it gets it's fair share of screentime and isn't sidelined. It is very subtle and demur, so it wouldn't surprise me if some people miss it completely. Nicely shot film, but not much else.

ew. Of Time and the City (2008) - 7.0 - This was hit and miss with me. Some of Davies' commentary was hilarious, but other times the film dragged. The music choice was pleasant, but overall this film essay didn't do much for me.

ex. Sleeping Giant (2015) - 8.6 - Beautiful film, would love to see the short this is based on. It really captures that hesitancy inside you when you're a teenager, and all that internal turmoil and conflict of what you want, who you are, and who to trust that I think a lot of us go through when we're figuring things out. No big coming out seen, no making out with your best friend who then shrugs it off as no big deal, no supportive parent who understands you even if you don't understand yourself. It's almost the antithesis of a Hollywood story, and it works with largely non-actors or new actors, but (almost) everything and everyone felt so incredibly real, especially the primary trio. Highly recommended.

The Navigator: A Medieval odyssey (NZ 88)

I saw this when it came out and it's not on any LGBT.... list as far as I can tell. It's ostensibly about the Black Death; nobody may consider it relevant anymore but a close friend who later died of AIDS recommended it to me - at the time it was seen by the gay community as a a metaphor.

(It comes up again because the partner of another close friend has been living with HIV for many years and has now been diagnosed with lymphoma.)

I don't guess there's a list dealing specifically with HIV/AIDS.
:run: STILL the Gaffer!

ey. The Mudge Boy (2003) - 7.8 - much was already said in the World Cup thread, but Hirsch did a great job here.

ez. Chained Girls (1965) - 5.0 - part of NWR's restoration project, ostensibly a documentary about how lesbians operate (seriously), it's tongue-in-cheek, but still not very good. It plays more like a smear campaign than anything else, and only worth viewing as a historical curiosity, but it doesn't have much merit.

fa. Occidental (2017) - 6.6 - weird and stylistic, queer but not queer. Yet definitely queer.

fb. Le sang d'un poète [The Blood of a Poet] (1932) - 5.6 - this shows up on a few queer lists, but I guess it's because of the way the camera lingers on the supple male bodies. Not much in queer context (or subtext) otherwise, imo. Also, rather boring.

fc. The Favourite (2018) - 8.8 - So much fun. I recognize that there's not a whole lot of historical evidence to support the lesbian activities in the film, but the filmmakers made it work, somehow. Gleefully odd and anachronistic, it's super fun. And, indeed, one of my favourites from last year's crop. I expect it will start showing up on people's lists as the "50 years since Stonewall" and "Best of the Decade" ones come out.

fd. Hanagatami (2017) - 7.2 - Nothing overt here, and it could be written off as hero admiration, but the lead character's infatuation with one of his friends is decidedly homoerotic (let's ride naked together on a horse in the moonlight in a non-romantic way). I don't know what to think of this film, and I almost stopped it after 10 minutes, but I'm glad I finished it. A visual wonder, with a wandering plotline, and off-putting cinematography. I may not remember the details after a while, but the film itself will stick in my memory.

41. Mala Noche [Bad Night] (1986) - 7.6 - Decent first film from Van Sant, and a sign of what was yet to come. Some of the dialogue was odd, and the lead's instant obsession with the Mexican struck me as unusual, but I suppose it happens. Recommended.

fe. Green Book (2018) - 7.8 - not as bad as I was expecting, but I waited over half the movie before anything was addressed about Shirley's homosexuality (or was he bisexual?). Still not sure if I feel it was handled on screen in the best way (won't explain here as it's a spoiler), but I guess they were trying to be "true to the times".

ff. Léon Morin, prêtre [Léon Morin, Priest] (1961) - 7.8 - The main female lead has a crush/infatuation with another woman through most of the film, and it's not quickly dismissed and then forgotten; it's even discussed with the titular priest, and he may have tried to explain it away but she was never shamed by anyone in the film. I was surprised to see this depicted in such an early film.

fg. Chloe (2009) - 7.4 - ended up kind of more or less where I expected it would. Not bad, not great, but it does have it's moments. Curious to see how it compares to the original French version, where the actresses were apparently unwilling to play up the lesbian angle.

--. Drift (2017) - 3.8 - I can't figure out if the two lead women were intended as a couple or not.

--. Avengers: Endgame (2019) - 8.2 - Sorry Russos, but your gay character wasn't worth the hype. If you'd said nothing about it it probably would have been a well-received pleasant surprise, but with all the hullaballoo it was pure disappointment.

fh. Tinimbang ka ngunit kulang [Weight But Found Wanting] (1974) - 7.8 - despite being somewhat more heavily featured in summaries of the film, the gay subplot actually receives very little screentime. Still, it was handled quite well, especially for a film from the '70s from a staunchly Catholic society.

fi. Scenes from Allen's Last Three Days on Earth as a Spirit (1997) - 3.2 - despite the famous subject and filmmaker, this was really boring. Sometimes "home movie"-style films can offer great insight, but this felt rather too intrusive and unimportant.

fj. Tab Hunter Confidential (2015) - 7.8 - We're lucky that one of Hollywood's closeted stars lived long enough to tell his own tale, in his own words. So much speculation has been thrown about around so many cinematic legends, it's refreshing to sort out the fact from fiction in this one. While Hunter maybe never achieved A-List status like some of his partners, I still found this doc fascinating, and it was interesting to hear what life was like in the '50s and '60s for a closeted star straight from the horses's mouth (puns intended). Glad he made peace with it all, and I want to dive deeper into his filmography now. Pity about Perkins, though; they were a dreamboat couple.

--. Listen to Me Marlon (2015) - 7.6 - With such a large collection of home audios, and so much speculation about his sexuality, and despite his seeming candour about his life, I was rather surprised that nothing was mentioned about his (still unconfirmed?) bisexuality. Definitely an inventive way of sharing someone's story, but even though it used Brando's own voice to narrate most of it, it felt less personal than the Hunter film. Still, rather good overall.

Pride Month has come and gone, and a slew of films were seen. Also passed the halfway mark in my goal of seeing 50 queer films this year since it's the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

fk. Théo et Hugo dans la même bateau [Paris 05:59: Théo and Hugo] (2016) - 8.2 - Loved this. Felt like it covered the whole range of the gay (male) experience: lust, sex, love, care, grief, commitment, joy, etc. Wrote more about it on letterbox, but this was the film I needed right now in my life.

42. Before Stonewall (1984) - 7.8 - Interesting doc on often neglected stories of pre-Stonewall gay life.

fl. Bara no sôretsu [Funeral Parade of Roses] (1969) - 7.4 - Super weird but ultimately I think I liked it.

43. After Stonewall (1999) - 7.8 - Slightly less interesting doc on post-Stonewall gay life, but that may be because I was already familiar with a fair chunk of it.

fm. Mario (2018) - 8.0 - Recent gay films seem to finally be coming into their own, no longer needing to demonize queers but also no longer needing to create artificially sweet romantic happy endings. Gays are essentially normalized (for better or for worse). If this is the beginning of a new Queer New Wave, then I'm all in.

fn. Hjartasteinn [Heartstone] (2016) - 8.4 - (l) (u) (l) Didn't go where I thought it would go, and I love it all the more because of that. Recent Icelandic films are really growing on me.

44. Outrageous! (1977) - 7.8 - A wonderful little hidden gem from Canada. A great drag performance, and even though the sequel is apparently atrocious, I still want to see it just for the drag show. Available on YouTube.

fo. Hawaii (2013) - 7.8 - Argentinean Berger delivers again. Not for those who can't handle a slow-moving plot, but reading between the lines (seeing between the scenes?) can be really rewarding in this one.

fp. The Fluffer (2001) - 7.2 - Kind of interesting, but also kind of disappointing. And don't get me started on the inconsistencies of the main character...
SpoilerShow
turn down a blowjob from an older guy in order to land the job you really want and make it an issue of personal integrity, but then chow down on straight dick on your first day of the job at the first opportunity?

--. Jacquot de Nantes (1991) - 7.8 - I don't know much about Demy, but he was bisexual and I thought that was known at the time this was made, but it wasn't mentioned at all, which kind of surprised me, as I've seen a fair amount written that his bisexuality influenced a lot of his films.

45. Stonewall Uprising (2010) - 7.6 - Informative, but lacking for me. I thought it was great that they were able to interview people who were actually there, and I learned a lot about the specific things from that night, and they showcased both sides (rioters/civilians and police), but they were (almost?) all white, and one thing that's fairly well documented is that it was largely queer POC (especially drag queens and transgender individuals) that were at the forefront. I would have really liked to hear their voices in this (granted, many had already died, but I don't think that's a valid excuse for not including their viewpoint since extensive documentation exists).

fq. The Adventures of Barry McKenzie (1972) - 6.6 - Dame Edna in her first film? This film was bonkers, with a few good moments, but ultimately meh. And I needed captions 90% of the time. Aside from Edna, a bunch of anti-gay jokes were thrown in for good measure, plus mocking of a gay man. Not my cup of tea, dearie.

fr. LA Plays Itself (1972) - 4.2 - Bad as a movie, almost as bad as a porn. Apparently there's a message, and I can kind of see it in hindsight... but it's still a bad film overall.

fs. Dakan [Destiny] (1997) - 6.4 - Groundbreaking as an African film that tackles a subject that is still largely taboo to this day. Not so good as a film in general, with a weak storyline and wonky acting. The film was full of cardboard characters and felt very one-note as if it only existed to push a pro-gay message (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). Glad it was made, glad I watched it, but nothing extraordinary here.

ft. The Shape of Water (2017) - 7.8 - Tokenism is not the same thing as diversity. Overall story was interesting; the gay plotline and character were less so.

fu. What Men Want (2019) - 7.4 - Surprised at the amount of gay men getting screentime in a female-centred comedy (but the director is gay, so maybe I shouldn't be so surprised). The primary gay couple is so cute though, so can't be too mad at this.

fv. Children of God (2010) - 6ish - I also watched the short Float (2007) that this was based on. Didn't really deliver on the promise of the premise. Despite getting more funding and three years time to make a better film, the feature film didn't really improve the concept. The short had a not-so-great lead (so I was glad he was replaced for the feature), but the feature had too many characters that didn't really need to be there, and a lot of the acting was stilted and storylines were left unresolved or unclear. The ending was also changed and it was worse. The pre-climactic confrontation made so much more sense in the short than the feature.

--. Calamity Jane (1953) - 7.6 - this one shows up on a number of queer lists, but I just don't see it. Maybe some argument could be made about lesbian subtext, but I don't buy it. Still, it's a great film.

fw. Les invisibles [The Invisible Ones] (2012) - 7.6 - French doc about older gays and lesbians, who are often forgotten by their younger counterparts. Fascinating to learn about how things were for them when they were younger.

fx. Posljednji Srbin u Hrvatskoj [The Last Serb in Croatia] (2019) - 7.4 - The opening act of the film features a gay couple. A horror comedy that was probably more fun seeing on the big screen than it would have been alone at home.

fy. Dolor y gloria [Pain and Glory] (2019) - 8.2 - Sublime Almodóvar psuedo-autobiography. Has gay (and bisexual) smeared all across the film.

--. Acquainted (2018) - 5.8 - Canadian indie that tokenizes queer people with poor jokes. I'm so late in updating this that I've mostly already forgotten about them, just that my rating and notes indicate it left a bad taste in my mouth.

46. Ang pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros [The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros] (2005) - 8.0 - So sweet. Glad I finally made time to watch this. Philippines has the reputation of being one of the better countries in Asia for queer folks (with Thailand, Israel, and maybe Taiwan and Japan), and they have a lot of cinema on the subject, but there's still also so much that needs to be done to protect them. Maybe seeing this film will help to change more minds, and help push reality to follow in cinema's footsteps of acceptance.

fz. Always Be My Maybe (2019) - 7.8 - funny film featuring a lesbian best friend and some scattered queer humour. Never felt exploitative, nor too PC. Surprisingly good film, with a celebrity cameo that is so batshit crazy yet fucking hilarious. Completely worked for me.

ga. O Ornitólogo [The Ornithologist] (2016) - 7.0 - retelling of a saint's life as a modern gay man? Subversive, and pretty to look at, but it kind of dragged on for me. Really liked the camera angles that showed things from the birds' perspectives.

gb. Rafiki [Friend] (2018) - 8.2 - yes, yes, yes. So happy to finally get to see this film; it definitely deserved to see the light of day. Nice story, beautiful acting, and the vivid colours! I want more of this.

gc. Las herederas [The Heiresses] (2018) - 7.6 - subdued film about middle-aged lesbians. Plods along at a pace that may seem slow to some, but I think it was appropriate in that it mirrored the main character's life, and how resistant to change and slow to adapt she is. It speeds up at the end, maybe reflecting her growth over the film.

-- Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot [They Call Me Jeeg] (2015) - 6.4 - after really enjoying this director's short film Tiger Boy, this was a huge letdown for me. Trans actress playing a trans character? Great! Having that character be used and then disposed? Not great. Having the main villain read as a vain, flamboyant, psycho queer? Also not great. While the film may be an interesting story and a technical achievement, the way it treats it's queer and female characters so dismissively really pissed me off. I ranted about it on letterboxd, if you want to check out a spoiler-laden review.

47. Bent (1997) - 8.2 - Finally worked up the nerve to see this powerfully devastating film about two gay men in a concentration camp before/during WWII. I more or less knew what I was getting into theme-wise, but didn't know much about the plot itself. Definitely feels like a stage play at moments, with minimalistic sets, but it's the raw emotion that drives this film. Great acting all around, and some cameos/minor roles from actors who went on to do greater work (some you may not recognize at first). Powerful, and should be required viewing for all.

gd. Ma vraie vie à Rouen [The True Story of My Life in Rouen] [My Life on Ice] (2002) - 7.6 - Similar to "found footage" films, this one uses a teen's handheld video camera to capture everything. I thought it was well done, if a little rough around the edges, and really told a coming of age/coming out story from a teen's perspective fairly accurately. Very French.

ge. King Cobra (2016) - 7.6 - better than expected. I thought it would be a campy retelling of a gay porn murder plot, but it was actually quite dramatic. Some of the acting was shaky, though, especially Franco's. I find he's hit or miss.

I'm back home and with more time now, so I'll work on some lists for you this month.
:)
Okay, almost three months later than intended, but here's what I've got.

These are the lists that I use to populate my own cross-reference list that I track in excel (list not on icm yet, sorry). Added notes for context where I could.
SpoilerShow
Tier 1 - Essential Lists (from queer sources)
The Backlot Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies (2014) - 100 films ranked, user poll, narrative films only.
AfterEllen Best Lesbian/Bi Movies (2012) - 51 films ranked, user poll, narrative films including miniseries.
The Backlot Top Gay Docs (2012) - 25 films ranked, user poll, documentaries only. [Last 25 films of the list]
The Advocate Top 175 Essential Films of All Time for LGBT Viewers (2014) - 175 films ranked, curated list, no TV films, no miniseries.
Metro Weekly Gay Films Everyone Should See (2012) - 81 films unranked, revealed in three parts.

Tier 2 - Best Lists from queer sources
Out Magazine's 50 Essential Gay Movies (2012) - 50 films unranked
Autostraddle's The 100 Best Lesbian Movies of All Time (2015) - 102 films ranked
Time Out's the 50 Best Gay Movies: The Best in LGBT Film-making (2015) - 50 films (including 1 collection of three shorts) ranked, user poll.
Indiewire's 50 Most Important LGBT Films Since Stonewall (2015) - 51 films ranked, user poll (plus 1 miniseries)
BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival's Top LGBT Films of All Time (2016) - 107 films ranked, user poll [Official List on iCM]

Tier 3 - Best Lists from other sources
Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies (2012) - 50 films ranked.
Flavorwire's 50 Essential LGBT Films (2013) - 50 films unranked, curated list.
Slant Magazine's The 75 Greatest LGBT Films of All Time (2016) - 75 films unranked
Awards Daily's 101 Years of Gay Cinema (Most Important) (2013) - 111 films unranked, user poll that was then expanded and then curated.
212 Essential LGBT Titles - CFB LOUNGE Edition (2018) - 215 films unranked, user poll.

Tier 4 - Interesting Lists, but not "Best"
101 Must-See Movies for Gay Men (2005) - 101 films, curated list from a book.
Berlin Film Festival Teddy Award (annual) - 32 films thus far, feature film winners only [icm list missing 2018 winner]
Venice Film Festival Queer Lion Award (annual) - 12 films thus far, feature film winners only. [No icm List yet... I'll add one this week I suppose Added!]
Cannes Film Festival Queer Palm Award (annual) - 9 films thus far, feature film winners only [iCM list includes short winners]
Huffington Post Uplifting LGBT (2013) - 45 films, curated list, films that are uplifting and celebratory only.

My cross-reference list counts the number of time a film appears on any of the 10 lists in the first two tiers (ignoring the ranks) and sorts by that. Tie-breakers are sorted by appearances on the 10 lists in the last two tiers.

I also keep track of my progress on previous versions of the above lists (2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012 versions of the Backlot/AfterElton feature film list, 2014 version of the Indiewire list, and 2013 version of the Slant list).

I've considered adding one of the Celluloid Closet lists to Tier 4 (either the list of films from the book or from the documentary).
I've also considered adding the Out Movie Guide, but it's nearly 700 films long. MovieDearest seems to have stopped adding new reviews, though.

Other Lists on my Queer Watchlist - for various reasons I have decided to exclude these lists from my tracker, but I still find them somewhat interesting and thus have bookmarked them. I´ll let you decide if they merit being added to your new cross-reference list. In no particular order:

The Internet film club: February 2014 LGBT Cinema watch list (2014) - 76 films, just a list of films they decided to watch that month, as far as I can tell.
Erik's Recommended GLBT Films - 399 films, personal favourites.
Out at Criterion - 20-21 films, very tiny list that is essentially a filter for queer films from Criterion.
Queer/Art/Film - 35 films, an eclectic list with a bunch of films missing, hasn't been updated in some time.
Top 50 Films of Queer Cinema - 50 films from RYM, based on average ratings, hasn't been updated in 2 years.

Not a 'best of' list for inclusion, but a good reference is the TLA Releasing - Distribution company list, since the vast majority of what they release is LGBT+.
And another list that seems to simply be a collection of eligible titles instead of a curated list is one covering New Queer Cinema.

Our iCM Forum list (that I know you don't like :lol: ) - Top 100 and All 809 Films, but I'd like to run the poll again either in 2019 or 2020 with more inclusive participation. When that happens, I'll add the list to my own cross-reference tracker.

And I've added two lists for queer films on official lists on icm (which I try to keep up to date, but some films I'm not aware of... just added two right now: The Embalmer and Multiple Maniacs; also noticed two formerly official checks regained official status, but I'll wait for the adoption of the new lists before I update again)
Queer Films on Official iCM Lists
Queer Films on Official iCM Lists - Dropoffs

Plus, there's the original cross-reference list from 2011 (which I dislike for only including "serious" films and excluding those that are "targeted toward a homosexual audience") and it's 2014 update (which is better).

And, of course, brokenface's cross-reference list.
I came across a new list last month. Movie Dearest already added it to icm: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/rott ... iedearest/

Honestly, it's not a good list. RT skews recent simply because of the way it operates and favours reviews over ratings, but the recency bias in this list is ridiculous. First they curated the Top 200, and then they ranked them based on Adjusted Tomatometer. 9 of the Top 10 are from the last 5 years. The median film on the list is from 2006, with only 5 films from before 1970, and only 1 film before 1960! While queer cinema has definitely blossomed in the last two decades, this is way too extreme of a focus. Nail in the coffin: There are 19 films from 2018 in this list, but only 14 films from the entire decade of the 1980s.

I can't complain about many of the recent films included, because I haven't seen them yet (including the two 2019 films Booksmart and Rocketman), but I find it inexcusable that such a large list has ignored these films that show up on many other top lists (all of which I'm assuming are rated Fresh on RT, but I don't know for sure without checking each one): But I'm a Cheerleader, The Times of Harvey Milk, Death in Venice, Rope, The Children's Hour, & Shelter. There are a bunch of other great recent films that I love and wish were one here, but I'm not as surprised since they are often ignored by most listmakers: Summer Storm, The Normal Heart, Boys, The King and the Clown, Heartstone, Plan B. The only good thing about it is that it did put another dozen films or so on my radar, though I probably would have stumbled upon them sooner or later.

Anyway, I'm at 56% of the list, and I'll definitely improve on that as I catch up on more recent films (30 of them I already have watchlisted). I've added it to my Tier 3 of Lists.

Oh, and since last year I switched the Advocate and BFI lists, so that the former is now Tier 2 and the latter Tier 1 (since it's now the Official List on icm).

If anyone finds any other new lists (I expect some will come out timing with the end of the decade), let me know!
