    Oh Pais is Burning reminds me:

     

    1968’s The Queen! Also I highly recommend a documentary that aired in the early 2000s about the life and career of William Haines, a star who quit Hollywood rather than quit his partner who would be with him until his death in 1973. I think it’s called William Haines: Out of the Closet, Onto the Screen?

    I also forgot The Normal Heart. I know it’s a TV movie, but an exceptional one.

    My Own Private Idaho it’s a beautiful story while not romantic per se it’s still a great film, River Phoenix gives a great performance

    Philadelphia is great at tackling the aids crisis. I think it’s very well done. Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington’s scene at the hospital is great.

    Some great mentions so far. My own is End of the Century, a recent Argentine film set in Barcelona, touching on themes of memory and the relationship between past and present.

    Btw, what were all these banned comments about? I missed all of that but can’t help being morbidly curious.

    Forgot about Angels in America. For anyone who’s interested, the professional tape of the most recent revival with Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane is astounding, and if you can find it (I don’t think it should be too hard to do), it’s most certainly worth watching.

    Call Me By Your Name is a mixed bag, so I wouldn’t considered it to a “great” LGBTQIA movie. Timothee was great, but Armie was ehhh. Also I never really saw as a “gay” movie that many in the “gay” community make it appear to be, as more of a coming of age one, as well as a bi one. 

    Bisexuals need representation and visibility as well and they often feel excluded from the queer community. I think CMBYN is a great LGBTQIA movie.

    “Call Me by Your Name” was excellent and fully deserving of the accolades it received and then some.

    A movie I just discovered is 1961’s Victim. It’s a pretty compelling noir film about a lawyer investigating a blackmailer that’s targeting gay men. It was pretty crazy watching a black and white film from 1961 where all the gay characters are treated sympathetically and the bad guys are the homophobic blackmailers. I’m surprised it doesn’t get discussed more in terms of queer cinema (i stumbled on it completely by chance on TCM) as its really good and really ahead of its time

    The Way He Looks is a Portuguese language coming-of-age and is quite touching and cute.

    A lot of the ones I would’ve mentioned have already been said.

    I’d add Giant Little Ones, I Dream in Another Language (a gorgeous Mexican movie that I wish had made more of a splash), Thelma, A Single Man, Princess Cyd, Beach Rats (despite the ending that I found kinda ugly), Tom of Finland, and The Mudge Boy.
