    I saw this film for the first time about ten years ago and let me tell you it completely took me by surprise by the real and heart warming truth it delivered. From the beginning Jamie and Steve.
    They were true and real to their charactors,

    A charming love story set over the course of a long, hot summer on a south London council estate, Beautiful Thing is Jonathon Harvey's feelgood play brought successfully to life for the big screen.

    It follows teenager Jamie experiencing his first flush of youthful love and coming to grips with his sexuality as he falls for the boy next door, Steve). When the two are thrown together after Steve seeks refuge from his violent family, they embark on a difficult journey, stealing tentative glances and eventually kisses.
    When Jamie's mum follows them one evening to a gay pub and discovers his schoolbooks defiled with insults by classmates, Jamie is forced to open up to her.

    While the characters and sets retain an air of theatricality about them, the theme of gay love is so sensitively handled by first time director Hettie Macdonald, that the 'issues' melt into the background and Beautiful Thing becomes an exuberant affirmation of love and life.

    Sit back and enjoy.

    Jean Genet's "Querelle" - Directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder is a current favorite by writ of sheer perversion of the genre.

    "The Broken Hearts Club" is a great movie with some very talented actors in it,like Dean Cane,well,he's not talented but he is good looking.John Mahoney is in it too.It is centered around gay friends and a baseball team.Check it out.

    Le Chansons d'Amour



    I could watch that movie a thousand times. Only movie I've ever seen that doesn't make a fuss over being bisexual but instead focuses on love both lost and found.

    The Trip, Broke Back Mountain, Big Eden, Lola & Billy The Kid, His Secret Life, Facing Windows, Turkish Bath are some of my favorite films. The first 3 is American & the rest is European movies.
