60. Zero Patience (1993) - 8.6 - Love love loved this! Provocative gay musical comedy about AIDS and discrimination? Didn't quite expect it to work, but it turned out Fabulous! The songs are really catchy too; I've still got the title song stuck in my head a few months later.

ie. Light Sleeper (1992) - 7.4 - the third person in the "group" is a gay man, and he's relatively important to the plot, though it still revolves around the central duo. It was quite refreshing to see a straight-gay male friendship so completely normalized in a film from the early '90s. The film itself it just okay, but I get why it has cult status.

--. Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) - 7.4 - the gay brother doesn't really feature in this one, and there are a bunch of homophobic jokes thrown around in the locker room/on the ice, but they don't really come across as that offensive since the film kind of shuts them down. Sort of.

if. Sitcom (1998) - 7.4 - More daring craziness from Ozon, this one is gay to the hilt, with both guys and girls switching teams and entering same-sex relationships at some point during the film. Lots of skin, quite kinky, and definitely trippy, yet it all kind of worked out in the end.

ig. Je t'aime moi non plus [I Love You, I Don't] (1976) - 4.6 - Pure trash (in the literal sense, since Joe's a garbage man), and despite the gay setup, it's not very gay ("gay" man falls for tomboyish girl), but still features gay-bashing and some weird painful sex. It seems like someone's sick fantasy... but it's not mine.

ih. The Fruit Machine (2018) - 8.4 - Revealing and infuriating documentary about the witch-hunt against gays and lesbians in the military and government civil service in Canada. Such a shame.

ii. Indianara (2019) - 7.8 - Biographical documentary about a transwoman activist in Brazil. Unapologetically queer, I think it does a lot to peel away the façade of Brazil being an LGBTQ+-friendly country, especially under the current administration.

ij. League of Gentlemen (1960) - 7.8 - One of the gang is gay, and it's mentioned a few times and played for laughs a bit, but it's mostly ignored, yet treated like a crime. Realities of post-war Britain I suppose.

--. Onward (2020) - 7.8 - Yes, the female cop has a girlfriend, and it's great that it's casually yet explicitly mentioned, but this is not the landmark of diversity Disney wants you to think it is, given all the publicity this minor character is given. At least it turned out better than the Betauty and the Beast fiasco. Babysteps. :sigh:

ik. Un rubio [The Blond One] (2019) - 7.8 - Marco Berger delivers again. Makes me want to move to Argentina. Another slow-paced, tender gay romance of sorts.

61. Kissing Jessica Stein (2001) - 7.6 - Good, but somewhat superficial. It's almost like two straight women wrote a film of what they thought lesbians were like (The two leads wrote the script together). It's cute, and has crossover appeal for the straight audience (which is great for visibility), but it ultimately felt shallow to me. Still, it was enjoyable throughout, and there's not much else to fault it with. Oh, and don't forget your sassy gay-couple best friends!

62. Sunday Bloody Sunday (1971) - 7.8 - Bisexual visibility in the '70s? Surprisingly good, though slightly feeds into the trope of bisexual people being sex-hungry sluts. I know Murray Head only from Chess, but he's quite good here (and surprisingly young.. 25 or so). Jackson & Finch both hold their own as well, and overall it's a great character study. You know how it's going to end, but you still want to see how they get there.

--. Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss (1982) - 7.6 - I can't make up my mind if the doctor is supposed to be a predatory lesbian or not (coded or otherwise).

--. Doors: Team B Terror (2018) - 7.0 - Episode of a Philippine horror anthology mini-series, this was directed by someone who I think is a gay man (he's directed other gay-themed features). A moralistic fairy tale with monsters, most of the film is teenage boys (aged 16 or 17 I think, though I suppose the actors themselves were all 18+) running around shirtless in their shorts or just their underwear. Seriously. It seems kind of exploitative, but I suppose it's comparable to the countless number of American slashers about teenage girls in their nighties. Thankfully, it's short (~45 minutes or so) and not too scary (a few jump scares but that's it), so it was pretty easy to get through.

il. Portrait de la jeune fille en feu [Portrait of a Lady on Fire] (2019) - 8.2 - Gorgeous, sensitive filmmaking. The use (and non-use) of music here is superb, and the scene (and imagery) from the poster is exquisite. Wish I could have caught this on the big screen. One of the rare films I would call an "instant classic".

--. Germania anno zero [Germany Year Zero] (1948) - 7.4 - Is this the start of (the popularization of) the viciously false conspiracy theory that the Nazis were gay? The two older men who are clearly Nazi sympathizers and are clearly predatory pedophiles did not sit well with me. There was so much happening in post-war Germany, and this is what Rosselini decided to focu son? Thankfully, the lead actor was fantastic in his role.

im. Lantana (2001) - 7.6 - one of the myriad of plotlines involves a gay man having an affair with a married man, and talking to his therapist about it. It was all right.

in. La hora fría [The Dark Hour] (2006) - 6.4 - Messy sci-fi horror that includes a gay couple in the ensemble.
What were they thinking? Some spoilers ahead
They're introduced quite normally at the beginning, which is great, and there are explicit parallels drawn between them and the only other (straight) couple in the group, which was great. It was completely normalized and no one batted an eye. But it was clearly just a gimmick. There is almost no affection shown between the two men, despite a lot of affection being shown between the straight couple, including them in bed about to have sex and make a sex tape. When 3 members set off on a dangerous mission, the straight couple embrace and kiss passionately, while the gay couple... does a fist bump and a shoulder pat? WTF? Later on, the teenage girl (16 or so) has a crush on one of the gay men (her teacher), and she crawls into bed with him one night and the share a brief chaste kiss and then fall asleep while waiting for the monsters to go away (there was no reason for her to be out of her room at night, but her entering his room and cuddling with him actually made sense in the film's logic). The next day she tells one of the women who acts like her mother figure (leaving out the kiss), just saying that she loves him (and it's obviously just a schoolgirl crush), and the woman freaks out and starts hitting the man, accusing him of taking advantage of the girl. Again, that old trope gay men being pedophiles/sexual predators (though this time for a girl?). She doesn't attempt to get his side of the story, or ask any questions of him or the girl, just jumps to conclusions and starts taking action. And then, of course, in the climactic battle scene, the gay couple has to die (one dies first, then the other going on a suicide mission since his lover is gone). What started out as a promising premise and introduction turned into a disappointing festival of anti-gay cliches, while still trying to present itself as pro-gay.

63. Prick Up Your Ears (1987) - 7.5ish - Stephen Frears is like the British Ang Lee... a straight man who's able to make positive and nuanced films about gay people, and able to not have their career nosedive because of it. I don't know how much of the story is true, but it's a fascinating tale. I'd never heard of Orton before, but he seems like quite the character. Oldman is great, as always, but Molina more than holds his own here too... I feel he's often overlooked. Wallace feels slightly out of place here (incidentally this film came out the same year as Princess Bride), and the rest of the supporting characters are fairly good. Worth a view if you're not put off by a bit of sleaziness in film.

--. Talentime (2009) - Yasmin Ahmad's last film, this ensemble piece includes two teachers who are good/best friends who are unknowingly caught twice by a fellow teach in compromising situations that he clearly interprets as them being gay: First, the one teacher kisses his friend on his cheek and head in thanks since he agreed to perform in the talent show with him (so that the first teacher could impress the female teacher who is organizing the talent show); second, the same teacher gives a shoulder massage to his friend because he's sore. These two scenes are unnecessary to the plot and are definitely played for laughs, but I'm surprised they made them past the censors here in Malaysia.

io. Karera ga honki de amu toki wa, [Close-Knit] (2017) - A tender drama that's both a coming-of-age tale of an 11-year-old girl who's been abandoned by her mother, a coming-out film of her male classmate, and a coming-to-terms film of her uncle's transgender girlfriend. Three fragile and damaged individuals (though all three strive to project confidence and strength, especially the girl) looking for love, acceptance, and self-worth. The subtheme of creating your own family will probably resonating with a lot of queer folks who were rejected by their own (though the scenes with the transwoman's oversupportive mother were nice to see they didn't fit tonally with the rest of the film). Some great humorous moments as well, and the English title is well-chosen. I think this would be a great film to show to pre-teens to introduce to them the concept of transpeople (if they didn't already understand it) and have a discussion about it. Thanks to beavis for pushing me to see this.

ip. Zéro de conduite: Jeunes diables au collège [Zero for Conduct] (1933) - 6.4 - Neither as good or as queer as I was expecting it to be. I barely remember the queer elements, aside from perhaps some perceived homoeroticism among the boys. I do agree that it's an important piece of filmmaking that has influenced countless similar films over the years, though.

iq. Sibak [Midnight Dancers] (1994) - 7.6 - Filipino drama about three siblings trying to support their family by working in a gay strip club. At times, it's pretty much softcore porn. Not much of a plot, character development, or acting skills, but it still charmed/affected me in it's brutal portrayal of the dangers of being different. Deserves a restoration, as the print available through Kanopy is pretty shoddy.

ir. Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen (2020) - 8.4 - Excellent documentary about trans lives depicted on screen, and the struggle of trans actors and filmmakers in today's industry. I've seen it compared to The Celluloid Closet, but I like this film better.

is. Hua jai tor ra nong [The Adventures of Iron Pussy] (2003) - 6.0 - Ridiculous campy action spy film about a drag queen. The plot is ridiculous, the acting is atrocious, and the special effects are laughable. But it was still fun. A very different film from Apitchapong compared to his other more meditative work.

it. Oliver (1983) - 7.6 - Fascinating short documentary about a gay worker at a strip club, and his unique act where he, er, mimics a spider creating a web with some accuracy.

iu. Henry Gamble's Birthday Party (2015) - 7.8 - Another good film from Stephen Cone (I really need to see Princess Cyd now), weaving being gay, teenage drama, and Christianity all together. This was more of an ensemble piece than I was expecting (the emphasis here is more on the birthday party than on Henry Gamble, so the title is actually quite accurate), but I think there was a nice balance between all the competing storylines, even if I was drawn to Henry's the most. I also have a soft spot for hypocrisy exposed on film.

iv. Nights in the Gardens of Spain [Kawa] (2010) - 6.8 - Coming out drama from New Zealand about a middle-aged man grappling with his sexuality. Aside from the addition of traditional Maori elements (the lead is Maori, but his wife and lover are both white), there isn't really much here. The only bright spot for me was The Hobbit's Dean O'Gorman as the lover. Disappointing overall, considering it took me years to track down a copy (which is surprising for a film from this decade that seems to have received a decent initial release).

iw. Gay USA (1977) - 7.6 - Documentary about the gay rights movement in it's early years, before AIDS stole the spotlight. A good reminder of how far we've come for those of us who were born later and have benefitted from the work these early pioneers and fighters did. The subject matter and it's personal connection to me was better than the filmmaking.

ix. Buddies (1985) - 8.4 - From the same director as Gay USA (he even reused some of the footage from that film in Buddies, which I found comical), this is one of the earlier AIDS dramas and what it lacks in finesse it makes up with a gutpunch of emotions. Hit me hard, and I'm glad this is being rediscovered. I think it's all the more timely because of covid.

iy. La dea fortuna [The Goddess of Fortune] (2019) - 7.8 - Italian drama about a gay couple who are asked to take care of their female friend's two kids while she goes into the hospital for a few days for some tests. The kids put some added stress on their already strained relationship, and her hospital stay keeps getting extended. Throw in a neighbour in the beginning stages of early-onset Alzheimer's, a witch of a grandmother, uncertain paternity, and questions of fidelity, and the film crams in a fair amount of drama to sort out. Still, I really liked it, and was surprised to find out it was directed by Özpetek, whose debut film Hamam [Steam] I've been trying to find (with subtitles) for a long time now.

iz. Like a Boss (2020) - 7.6 - What would cosmetics mavens do without their gay best friends/personal assistants? For a straight film aimed at straight women, there's a fair amount of queering going on, with the two straight female leads living together in the same house, Billy Porter (who owns every scene as he should) as the fabulous worker at their artisanal cosmetics store, and the is-he-or-isn't-he personal assistant to Salma Hayek's Boss Bitch (played by Karan Soni, who may be my new favourite character actor after his turns in Deadpool and Always Be My Maybe... makes me really want to see Safety Not Guaranteed now just for him). Overall, it's fine.

64. Der junge Törless [The Young Törless] (1966) - 7.8 - The queerness of this film is subtle and easily glossed over, but it's really essential to the core story. It's one of the films that owes a lot to Zero for Conduct, but I think this film executes it's vision far better. Moral ambiguity, bullying, (possible) latent homosexuality, and the power dynamics of (sexual) abuse all factor in to a film about teens at a military boarding school.

ja. Dream Boat (2017) - 7.2 - Documentary about a gay cruise, focusing on 5 different men from 5 different countries aboard. It's all right, tries to be descriptive instead of prescriptive, but doesn't really do much. There's plenty of hot man flesh if that's your thing, and some explicit nudity (including a brief public blowjob scene) so be forewarned.

jb. Forbidden Games: The Justin Fashanu Story (2017) - 6.0 - Saw this and Dream Boat because they were expiring on Netflix, but hadn't heard of either prior. I'm interested in Fashanu's story, but this documentary was too one-sided for me, and felt exploitative of Justin instead of compassionate. There was no real coherent narrative, too many side stories that took away from the potentially powerful story of an out-and-proud gay black man playing top level football in the 1990s! At least this made me aware of his story, but as a film it's pretty shoddy.

jc. O Fantasma [The Phantom] (2000) - 7.2 - Chosen by my Secret Santa for me. Crazy shit that falls further and further into depravity with it's lead. Here's what I wrote in that thread: "O Fantasma was erotic, as promised, but it was also fucking weird. And confusing. Putting the rest in spoilers."
Spoiler
I knew it would be somewhat weird, given I'd already seen The Ornithologist, so I was fine just accepting whatever the film had to show without questioning it too much, assuming it would all make sense eventually. And for the most part, it did. But the last 20 minutes or so it took a strange turn (starting with him kidnapping João) and the film lost me. Up until that point, it might have even made my <400 list (and I may still include it my debut films list for the poll next year), but I'm still left scratching my head. I get the whole tumbling into depravity thing, but this didn't seem like a logical progression, and it left the film unresolved for me.

I'm the same age as the lead actor, and this came out the year I turned 18. I cannot imagine doing any of those things at that age (mind you, I don't have any fetishes to begin with, so there's that), and I found it slightly disturbing when I realized the film premiered 4 months after the lead actor turned 18, which means either the film was made in a very short timeframe, or some of what he did was when he was underage (include a surprise explicit oral sex scene I was not expecting). I'm not trying to be prudish or say that teenagers shouldn't be engaging in sexual activity, and I'm aware in the porn world they can start working legally the day they turn 18, but it makes me think of how much did the actor know what he was getting himself into, and was he coerced/manipulated by the director to do it - especially since he hasn't made a single film since, and apparently went back to his hometown to help his widowed mother run the farm.

My only other issues were the creepy cops, and the fact that most of this film takes place at night, so it was sometimes hard to see what was happening on screen.
65. The Living End (1992) - 7.2 - Billed as a gay Thelma and Louise, with two HIV-positive young men driving aimlessly across the USA in a giant "Fuck You" to straight society that marginalizes and dehumanizes them. It's transgressive, but didn't quite grab me as much as I'd hoped for. Still, I really want to see more from Araki as he keeps bringing something new each time.

I might got back to monthly instead of quarterly updates if I start seeing more queer films in 2021 as planned.

jd. Dylda [Beanpole] (2019) - 7.2 - I'm not fully onboard with this being called a queer film, given how little queerness shows up and how late in the game it appears (making it feel like an afterthought instead of a built up intention). It's a decent film, though, with some nice cinematography and strong spartan acting. Didn't quite grab me, though.

je. Papi Chulo (2018) - 7.6 - An Irish film set in California with a Spanish title, it addresses some interesting themes in the gay (male) community, such as co-dependence, age differences, and straight chasing. Bomer's fine, but the real star for me is Patiño. Solid indie flick that doesn't follow the well-trod path.

jf. Pepi, Luci, Bom y otras chicas del montón [Pepi, Luci, Bom and Other Girls Like Mom] (1980) - 7.4 - Fun early Almodóvar, with lots of queerness about it even if the actual queer characters are not the main focus. Kind of all over the place, but charming in it's own way, and a clear precursor to some of his greater later work.

jg. G.O.R.A. (2004) - 4.4 - Effeminate closeted gay men who exist only to be comic relief. Even ignoring that ugly trope, it's still a terrible movie. On a slightly more positive note, it was my 100th feature from 2004, making it the first year to hit that milestone.

jh. Pelo malo [Bad Hair] (2013) - 7.8 - A gay movie without any gay characters? You bet. Here, the young boy is thought to be gay by his mother, who panics and goes to different lengths to butch him up. Given the premise, it's an evenly-keeled film that doesn't venture into crazy antics, and treats its characters with humanity even when they are inhumane. Recommended.

ji. Azul y no tan rosa [My Straight Son] (2012) - 8.0 - Second film in my Venezuelan queer double feature, this drama about a gay man and his straight teenaged son learning how to be a family was quite nice. It's essentially a double coming of age pic. There's some violence that felt gratuitous and unnecessary at first, but as the film went along it slowly felt more justified and warranted. Still, I found it quite shocking. Also recommended.

jj. Touch Me Not (2018) - 5.6 - Some queer characters in this ensemble piece. I like that it doesn't shy away from non-glamourous bodies, but the film itself didn't come together for me and was a slog to get through.

jk. Primos [Cousins] (2019) - 6.2 - Sexy, but not really good. Was expecting more than a made-for-tv-style film with questionable acting and storylines, but then reading another review that talked about how we deserve these cheap productions as well, and that if we're getting the whole gamut of queer fare, from highbrow awards bait romances to stilly cheap sex comedies, then this (distant-)cousins-in-love movie with some explicit nudity is a sign that we're getting closer to widespread visibility and acceptance. The ridiculous religious group and the over-the-top girl were too much for me, though.

--. Swiped (2018) - 3.4 - A terrible, terrible film with two minor queer quibbles. First, everyone assumes the lead character is gay for some reason (because he's a nerd and is awkward around girls?), so much so that two of them have a bet about it. To be fair, none of the characters tease him about it or think it's bad that he is/might be gay, but it just cheapens it to bet over it. Not necessary. Second, grampa is saying something about how things haven't changed much since he was dating, then two women (presumably lesbians) walk by, and he says, "well, almost everything", as if gay people didn't exist back then (I'm paraphrasing and my memory is somewhat blurry on this point now). It just felt like cheap, needless erasure, and that's something we've been fighting against for millennia. This film is dedicated to the director's parents, and another reviewer surmised that she must hate her parents. I kind of concur.

jl. The Death & Life of John F. Donovan (2018) - 7.8 - Even when he's off his game, Dolan still makes films that I can love and appreciate. Tremblay is great in this, while the other actors are good to okay. But the sentiment and the story drew me in, plus his signature music montages.

jm. Handsome Devil (2016) - 7.8 - Coming-of-age boarding school outcast rugby teen drama. Ireland is one of my favourite countries (I'm biased since I'm part Irish and have always identified with that heritage the most), and I finally got to visit it a few summers ago, and have seriously considered moving there. But it's also somewhat socially-repressed due to years and years of dominance by the Catholic Church, which makes me think if I had it rough growing up at a regular suburban Catholic school in Canada in the '90s, then I don't know how I would have fared in small-town Ireland. Andrew Scott (aka Hot Priest from Fleabag) is good in this.

jn. The Prom (2020) - 7.8 - Not nearly as horrid as people are making this out to be. It was easy and fun, nothing too serious, though it did have some serious moments. And all the uproar about James Corden's gayface is blown way out of proportion. I think he gave a good performance, and it didn't rely on flamboyant stereotypes, but was grounded in something more (his scene with his mom was evidence of this, to me). All the main adults do fine, but Pellman as the main teen held her own. And now I kind of want to see the Eleanor Roosevelt musical.

jo. Dating Amber (2020) - 8.4 - Another Irish coming of age gay drama, this time set in the '90s and featuring teenage closet cases acting as each other's beards. It's Finn O'Shea's movie (he was also in Handsome Devil), but Lola Petticrew is the real star of this for me. She drives the narrative and I think has more growth as well. But that feeling of just wanting to lay low until you can escape... that was all too real to me, even if the rest of the school atmosphere was very different from my own.

jp. Matthias et Maxime [Matthias and Maxime] (2019) - 8.6 - Dolan's latest is one of his greatest. It's rare that a long film (2+ hours) ends and I want it to keep going. I wanted to continue with the story and see how their friendship evolved, but I also think it was the right time to end it and leave the rest to our imaginations. It's a small, intimate picture, that feels like a character study. A group of six friends in their late 20s, there's no anti-gay sentiment anywhere except the internalized homophobia of one or two of the characters. Solid, healthy friendships without much toxic masculinity. And Anne Dorval is great (and unrecognizable) as Dolan's mother, ten years after she played his mother in I Killed My Mother. Dolan's first decade as a director was great for me - I'm eagerly looking forward to his second. His films aren't about me, and aside from being gay and Canadian we don't have much in common, but I feel seen in his films and in his characters.

iq. Starstruck (1982) - 8.2 - This was so much fun! "I Want to Live in a House" is my new favourite song. The whole film is fast-paced and rambunctious. At first I thought the teen boy was gay, but he's not - another character is revealed to be later on, though. And no anti-gay sentiment in this, despite it being a film from the '80s. Rock on!

--. Dhobi Ghat [Mumbai Diaries] (2010) - 6.4 - I was hoping for a refreshing indie film outside of the Bollywood bubble, but got this mess of a film from Aamir Khan's wife, starring Aamir Khan (and no, I don't mean to reduce Kiran Rao to her relationship to a man, but rather highlighting the insider-ness and nepotism of the film, despite the marketing saying otherwise - Khan said something like "this film is breaking new ground in India" {I forget the exact quote}). There's what appears to be a GBF for one of the female leads, whose sole purpose is to console her, make snarky comments, procure drugs, and (presumably) show something edgy about the big city. Plus, I didn't like Monica Dogra's acting - and the only storyline I really cared about was that of Prateik's character.

jr. People You May Know (2016) - 5.6 - I watched this because it was expiring on Netflix and it had Sean Maher (Dr. Simon Tam from Firefly). Honestly, not worth your time. Convoluted story, shoddy acting (save Carmen Maura, but she only has one scene), silly plot points... it just doesn't add up to anything good. I did kind of enjoy Mark from Day Drunk Gays and his character's paramour, but that's about it. Also, the Netflix summary being incorrect didn't help (Advertised as a gay guy who knocks up his straight best friend's wife after a night of drunken sex, it's actually about a gay guy who knocks up his female straight best friend, which left me confused at the start). Skip this one unless you enjoy any of the actors and want to complete their filmography.

js. Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020) - 7.6 - Does the title refer to Ma Rainey's butt or the song? Does it matter? Not really, because this movie is more about Levee Green than Ma Rainey. The acting is perfection from everyone, especially Davis and Boseman, but everything else kind of limps along (except the music... that's stellar too, as expected). The CGI out old Chicago looks cheap, the plot is razor thin (apparently a whole hour of the stage play was cut in this adaptation, which comes in at a lean 90 minutes), and the positioning of this as a Ma Rainey biopic that ends up being a Ma Rainey footnote kind of put a downer on it. Still, glad this was made to be able to see Davis and Boseman shine on screen, and for unapologetically showing a black queer female in all her glory. Ma Rainey was one shrewd businesswoman (in the film; I can only assume she was in real life too), and I loved to see her chew the scenery in this. One of Levee's early monologues where the mood shifts on a dime as he speaks about something in his past was one of the most powerful moments in my film history. Plus, justice for poor Toledo. Fun fact - the actor who plays Cutler (the head of the band), Colman Domingo, is an out gay man.

jt. Mapplethorpe (2018) - 7ish - I learned it's pronounce MAY-pull-thorp not MAP-pull-thorpe. For some reason I thought this was a documentary, but it's not, just a straight ( tehe ) biopic. Smith is good, but the film didn't hit it for me. I expected something much more provocative considering how legendary and ground-breaking his photography was, but this film was lacklustre and dull. Milquetoast, almost. Also, I'm glad it didn't shy away from the unpleasant sides of Mapplethorpe (black fetishism, reckless abandon with AIDS, cruelty to his brother, narcissism and self-absorption), but still had him be somewhat likeable. I'm surprised that he created a foundation a year before his death that (aside from primarily protecting his legacy and making sure his family couldn't benefit from his name/art) goes to help those with HIV/AIDS and research... perhaps he had a change of heart as his disease progressed (which isn't shown on screen)? Anyway, somewhat interesting film about a gay icon/trailblazer, but don't expect the film to mirror his art (though they do show a lot of his photos in the film).
