    There have been a few threads about guy’s favourite movies on RJ but I do not recall a thread exclusively for movies of the type above. I have not had a chance to see very many LGBT subject matter movies since moving to Spain, so I am especially interested in movies you liked from the last 10 years but not exclusively so.

    Here is a list of my favourite LGBT subject matter movies.


    We Two Were One Man
    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
    The Sum of Us
    The Birdcage
    Bound
    Maurice
    Ma Vie en Rose
    Transamerica
    Philadelphia

    I'd endorse Priscilla and Birdcage, since I like comedy and music. Plus these:

    Brokeback Mountain
    Victor/Victoria
    Angels in America (HBO miniseries, not a theatrical movie)
    Capote

    I recently saw the premiere screening of "A Jihad for Love" - a documentary dealing with interviews of Gay Muslims throughout the Middle East.

    The director was there and fielded questions. It was probably the most important film I have seen in my adult life. I feel a part of a larger community and not so isolated after watching the film. I realize so many Muslims are asking the same questions - how to balance your sexuality and spirituality.
    I felt renewed by the experience.

    The director said he plans to have the DVD out by next year.

    My other favorite and still my most favorite film of all time is "The Color Purple." My sense of self worth blossomed after that film. I still relate to Celie on many levels.

    Boys Don't Cry -

    I saw this movie with a friend and remember the dry lump in my throat thinking, "don't cry". A few tears rolled down my face anyway. The movie ended, my friend and I without saying a word, walked out and drove home without saying a single word.

    I wouldn't watch this movie again but regard it as a favourite for the poignant display of harsh reality some courageously face.

    Priscilla Queen of the Desert

    A movie that I watched alone and it made me laugh aloud several times. That is my qualifier for a good comedy.

    Trick
    Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss
    Brokeback Mountain
    Fight Club (it's GOT to qualify, esp. with that hot bathroom scene)
    Richard III, the one with Ian McKellan
    But I'm a Cheerleader (look for Rue Paul playing a man)
    Talented Mr. Ripley

    and an oldie, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the one with Paul Newman and Liz Taylor back when they were both crazy hot. The Paul Newman character, Brick, drinks to forget his failed relationship with his football buddy, Skipper.

    Latter Days was my favorite cuz I liked the Mormon guy and the storyline. Plus they didn't get too specific when it came to that last bedroom scene. Really appreciated that one! =D

    Brokeback Mountain was okay but not the best bi movie I've ever scene. icon_confused.gif
