queer cinema

:iconberlinbuenosayres:
i was talking with my mate a while ago about this list we found of the (supposedly) best queer films. now the problem is, i'd seen many of those and they were mostly bad.

i like queer cinema, but why is there such a great amount of bad, romantic, angsty, crap films? sometimes i feel these film makers think the queer thing is enough to keep the whole thing going. but it's not! at least not in the today, and yet i feel i'm the only one thinking this way sometimes, as i said, the best queer films lists have too much rubbish on it.

maybe the word-of-mouth still works? what are your favourite queer films and etc?

mine:
my own private idaho (gus van sant),
faustrecht der freiheit (rainer werner fassbinder),
die bitteren tranen der petra von kant (fassbinder),
nowhere (gregg araki),
plata quemada (marcelo pi˝eyro),
morrer como un homem (joao pedro rodrigues),
madame sata (karim ainouz),
the crying game (neil jordan),
la ley del deseo (pedro almodovar),
gouttes d'eau sur pierres brulantes (franšois ozon),
the boys in the band (william friedkin),
heavenly creatures (peter jackson),
the kids are all right (lisa cholodenko).

another thing, how does your country treats queer cinema? anything good?

have a nice day.

All right so back in 2007 my roommate of the time got a movie from his sister for his birthday.

I'am chilling in my room and he comes in and was like you want to drink some 40's and watch a movie my sister bought me, I said sure.

The movie was called SHORT BUS and wow it was way out there in the queer genre.

Is that anything like Australian New Wave which, I'm sorry, produced some of the most homoerotic movies I've ever seen?

The Road Warrior series was pretty good (but extremely gay) and the Priscilla Queen of the Desert was just out and out gay as shit.

Sure, the Road Warrior films are fun, but they're still VERY homoerotic.
