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.June 23, 2020 at 10:21 am #1203548047
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.June 23, 2020 at 11:48 am #1203548210
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.
I am sorry for my past behaviour. I am sorry for being a turd. I would like to try and be better.June 23, 2020 at 12:26 pm #1203548271

God’s Own Country (2017)
Both really powerfull filmsJune 23, 2020 at 12:34 pm #1203548293

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)June 23, 2020 at 1:17 pm #1203548357
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.June 23, 2020 at 1:36 pm #1203548389
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.June 23, 2020 at 2:20 pm #1203548447
I’m glad Call Me By Your Name is not here. My favorite is probably The Favourite and Brokeback Mountain.

CMBYN is overrated. Although I still like the film but I wouldn’t dare to mention it.
While I think it may be a bit overhyped and I find Chalamet to be somewhat overrated for his other performances, I still think it’s a stellar film, and he was legitimately fantastic in it.June 23, 2020 at 3:04 pm #1203548539
