Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001)
Pariah has something new to say about the struggle to be who you are versus be who others would like you to be. Pariahis a gay coming of age story with a large dose of raw truth.
Weekend is a lovely surprise. It is a film about two strangers that meet and change each other’s lives in a matter of days. I am certainly looking forward to more of writer-director Andrew Haighs work.
A Single Man (2009)
Tom Ford (Director/Gucci Designer) has made exquisite film debut with A Single Man. A somber study of the life of a gay man in the early ‘60s, Colin Firth gives a remarkable and subdued performance.
The Celluloid Closet (1995)
The Celluloid Closet is a winning documentary on Hollywood’s on screen treatment of homosexuality. It goes for bright, often campy commentary by gay figures (Gore Vidal), directors (Wyler) and actors (Tom Hanks, Lily Tomlin, etc) who shed light on the conditions in which these films were made and viewed. The Celluloid Closet takes the high road versus becoming an anti-Hollywood diatribe.
