Films About Boys Who Love Boys

Discussion in 'TV + Film' started by Jono, Jul 24, 2009.

  1. I'm more perched than I should be for Love, Simon.
  2. Tickets for a train to God's Own Country now. I watched it last night. The main character is so annoying. The immigrant farmer is hot. It IS a bit Brokeback Mountain-y, but even more bleak and more English.

  3. Another trailer for Love, Simon.
    So adorbs.
  4. I actual adore that boys face and the sound of his voice. Cannot wait to see this.

  5. The book its based on is very very cute.

  6. People keep complaining how he doesn't seem or act gay enough. It's true that he's not effeminate in any way but that doesn't mean that he will portray the character in a derogatory fashion.
  7. Aren't people with such complaints perpetuating the same stereotype they usually claim to be against for?
  8. Oh for fucks sake, really?! In this day and age! That makes me sad.

    HOWEVER, that trailer is still utterly adorable, I fear I might weep buckets, however, I might also be distracted from that every time Simon's dad(dy) is on screen.....yum!
  9. I just watched “Heartstone”, from Iceland. Nothing new storywise, a closeted teen falls for his straight best friend, but it took the different step of showing most of the story from the POV of the straight friend. I thought it was lovely.

  10. I just finished 120 beats per minute and... wow. It's a gut punch. I recommend it but be prepared for a grim and unflinching look at the AIDS crisis but also at the power of community and activism. Those guys were heroes.

  11. I watched this a few months back and thought it was just wonderful. Really heart wrenching.

  12. Where are people watching 120 BPM?

  13. To use a forum metaphor, I had to catch a train.

  14. I have been following this web series since 2012 or 2013... It is QUITE wholesome at times but matures quite a lot and I ended up crying my eyes out at the finale (I am not a crier).

    It is worth the pay off... but I am warning you that it is very ... innocent?

  15. Is it good?
  16. So here is your 2018 updated list of every queer(ish) title mentioned so far. I can't vouch for the quality or even queerness of them all but they have all at least been mentioned in this thread.

  17. Law of Desire is fucking hot. Always here for Antonio Banderas mano e mano-ing it up.
  18. I mean, I assume Call Me by Your Name isn't on here because it's so obvious.
  19. DOH!

    Yeah it's so obvious I didn't even check.
