    I meant to do this the other day, but forgot. However, better late than never.

    Right now, given it’s Pride Month and there’s so much going on in the way of the Black Lives Matter movement, Moonlight is kind of the perfect film to watch, as it deals with race and sexuality in an extremely interesting way. In addition to the main character, the overall cast is absolutely excellent, with Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris giving two of the best supporting supporting turns of the past several years.

    For other films more centered on sexuality, Call Me By Your Name and Carol are two beautiful love stories. The leading performances from Chalamet, Blanchett, and Mara exceptional, and the former’s supporting turns from Hammer and Stuhlbarg are just as brilliant.

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire is another movie that I strongly recommend. A masterpiece for the ages.

    I also recommend Blue Is the Warmest Color and The Handmaiden. Two phenomenal movies that also deal with sexuality in different and brilliant ways.

    Farewell, My Concubine is my favorite too. I would add Happy Together, Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean and Pain & Glory.

    Moonlight will always be #1

    But I recently watched Brother To Brother, a 2004 movie with Anthony Mackie. Small, indie and a great tale on the subtle racism and fetishization black gay men endure with white gay men

    My girl Aunjanue Ellis makes an appearance too

    Beautiful Thing (1996) is probably the least kitschy film I’ve seen from this genre. I highly recommend it – incredibly touching, funny, and real.

    I don’t really personally go out of my way to see LGBT-related films, but I do really like Boy Erased. That is pretty underrated if you ask me.

    May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.

    I thought A Fantastic Woman was really powerful viewing.

    I’m glad to see Portrait of a Lady on Fire received a number of mentions above. For me, this was tied with Parasite for best movie of 2019. Really beautiful.

    I highly recommend seeing “God’s Own Country.” Josh O’Connor and Alec Secareanu were both extraordinary here and Oscar-worthy. Also one of the best films of the decade.
