  1. Erik's Recommended GLBT Films's icon

    Erik's Recommended GLBT Films

    Favs/dislikes: 34:1. This is a list of my top favorite movies, series, and documentaries with gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender content. Some of the earlier films may not have overt content, but I feel they are significant in queer film history nonetheless. I used to manage my local GLBT bookstore before it closed, and now work at an independent video rental store. I have more complete lists posted in my Letterboxd account (http://letterboxd.com/erikswallow/).
  2. The Celluloid Closet: The Book's icon

    The Celluloid Closet: The Book

    Favs/dislikes: 31:0. List compiled from the "Filmography" section of Vito Russo's landmark book "The Celluloid Closet" (first published in 1981, revised edition published in 1987). See also: "The Celluloid Closet: The Documentary": https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/the+celluloid+closet+the+documentary/moviedearest/

  4. Top 100 Homosexual Themed Movies's icon

    Top 100 Homosexual Themed Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 29:1. I compiled this list from diverse lists from critics and polls, collecting information about the best gay themed movies for a broader audience. I weighted it to create a certain ranking. The total of films that were named is 394. Movies, which target only a homosexual audience were excluded (for example: Eating Out). I have not seen all of the movies, but I tried to focus on the "serious" movies. Enjoy!

  6. The Advocate's Top 175 Essential Films of All Time for LGBT Viewers's icon

    The Advocate's Top 175 Essential Films of All Time for LGBT Viewers

    Favs/dislikes: 25:0. Published June 23, 2014 on Advocate.com: "Everyone agrees a set of movies exists that are must-sees for any LGBT viewer. We just don't agree on which ones. Dare ask a gay man for his list, and he's likely to rattle off a few that come to mind quickly and then make amendments to it for the rest of your adult lives. Women don't start with the same list. Some movies are incredibly impactful on depictions of trans people or those living with HIV, or mark major firsts in film. Some are too campy to ignore (at least not if you want to keep up at brunch). The bottom line is there are legions of reasons why a movie could be considered "essential" to the LGBT community. We've ventured into the tricky territory of ranking which are most essential. To accomplish this feat, everyone on staff was asked for a top 10, then we asked readers for theirs, and finally began the arguing — always politely. Television movies aren't included (sorry, The Laramie Project, An Early Frost, and Gia). Television series aren't included either (apologies to Tales of the City, AbFab, and Angels in America). The result is potentially a guide for anyone who wants to examine our roots through film. Oh, and we reserve the right to amend it for the rest of our lives. — The Editors"
  7. Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies's icon

    Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 14:1. The most glorious, groundbreaking gay and lesbian movies of all time.
  8. Metro Weekly Gay Films Everyone Should See's icon

    Favs/dislikes: 11:0. The following list combines the original 25 films plus 50 more from the “sequels”. Ties result in a total of 81 films.
  9. The Internet film club: February 2014  LGBT Cinema watch list's icon

    The Internet film club: February 2014 LGBT Cinema watch list

    Favs/dislikes: 11:1. The Internet film club has decided to dedicate February 2014 to LGBT Cinema. This is the watch list. The 7 first are the most important one, the rest is extra. For more information on The Internet film club, go to: https://sites.google.com/site/theinternetfilmclub/
  10. Autostraddle's 100 (or is it 102) best lesbian movies of all time's icon

    Autostraddle's 100 (or is it 102) best lesbian movies of all time

    Favs/dislikes: 10:1. Films aimed at lesbian, bisexual and queer women have never exactly been noted for their universal excellence. Hollywood is a notoriously sexist machine and it’s hard enough to get a solid film about women made, let alone a solid film about women who prefer the company of other women. While unprecedented progress is being made on television, film lags sadly behind, offering few, if any, portrayals of LGBTQ women. The term “lesbian movies” is used in the headline because that is the most popular search term for people looking for films about women who like other women, but these movies feature women of all sexual orientations besides “straight.”
  11. Top 50 Films of Queer Cinema's icon

    Top 50 Films of Queer Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. The top 50 queer cinema films as voted on by users of Rateyourmusic.com's film page.
  12. Best Lesbian Flicks's icon

    Best Lesbian Flicks

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. The best in queer cinema - nothing like Room in Rome or that other cheap crap. I've tried to order the movies regarding cinematic aspects and/or importance of the film or subject. However I can only rank the movies when I am on my PC, so new additions below Carol might get ranked higher when I get round to it. The Handmaiden is awful and I can't include it here. Blockers I normally wouldn't include because the lesbian story line doesn't take up much space, but gets an honorary mention because it is surprisingly good and funny. I only add movies I have watched. If you think I have missed a great movie, please send me a pm! :)
  13. LGBT List Cross-Reference's icon

    LGBT List Cross-Reference

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Cross reference of films which appear on more than two of a selection of LGBT themed lists, sorted in descending order of most number of lists. Last updated Dec 2015: now made up from 28 lists.
  14. Queer/Art/Film's icon

    Queer/Art/Film

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. Founded in June 2009, Queer/Art/Film is a New York film series where each month they invite one of the city’s homosexual artists to pick a film that has most inspired them, and present it to an audience. Some films are missing, as they are not classified by IMDb as films.
  15. LGBT movies's icon

    LGBT movies

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. All LGBT movies that I saw
  16. LGBT's icon

    LGBT

    Favs/dislikes: 3:4. LGBT movies that I approve of - usually with happy endings. (Okay, so they're mostly lesbian movies. But to be fair, there aren't enough of those in the world.)
  17. Out at Criterion's icon

    Out at Criterion

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. In 1961, Basil Dearden’s Victim became the first mainstream English-language drama to feature a sympathetic homosexual protagonist, played by matinee idol Dirk Bogarde. In 2011, Andrew Haigh’s boy-meets-boy romance Weekend defied expectations to become a crossover art-house hit. The fact that, fifty years after Victim, Weekend is also considered groundbreaking is evidence of how far cinema may still have to go in terms of gay representation. But between these two revelatory films, there have been plenty of other important and entertaining ones made about gay, lesbian, and bisexual people, and several of them are available in the Criterion Collection, including works by trailblazers like Robert Epstein, Derek Jarman, and Gus van Sant.
  18. The BFI 30 Best LGBT Films of All Time's icon

    The BFI 30 Best LGBT Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. To mark the 30th anniversary of BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival, BFI is delighted to announce the Top 30 LGBT Films of All Time in the first major critical survey of LGBT films. Over 100 film experts including critics, writers and programmers such as Joanna Hogg, Mark Cousins, Peter Strickland, Richard Dyer, Nick James and Laura Mulvey, as well as past and present BFI Flare programmers, have voted the Top 30 LGBT Films of All Time. The poll’s results represent 84 years of cinema and 12 countries, from countries including Thailand, Japan, Sweden and Spain, as well as films that showed at BFI Flare such as Orlando (1992), Beautiful Thing (1996), Weekend (2011) and Blue Is the Warmest Colour (2013).
  19. Autostraddle's Best Lesbian, Queer & Bisexual Movies of All Time's icon

    Autostraddle's Best Lesbian, Queer & Bisexual Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Films aimed at lesbian, bisexual and queer women have never exactly been noted for their universal excellence. Hollywood is a notoriously sexist machine and it’s hard enough to get a solid film about women made, let alone a solid film about women who prefer the company of other women. While unprecedented progress is being made on television, film lags sadly behind, offering few, if any, portrayals of LGBTQ women. Curating a ranked list of the best lesbian movies (and otherwise queer movies) of all time was not easy. It involved some rounds of nominations and voting from our own team members, Riese watching so many lesbian movies in such a short period of time that she lost her overall ability to determine “good” from “bad,” a surveyance of other lists and reading a ton of movie reviews to come up with the most objective list possible. Note: This list is updated to the most recent version of Autostraddle's list. I will continue to update this whenever they update theirs.

    The Criterion Collection: Out at Criterion

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. In 1961, Basil Dearden’s Victim became the first mainstream English-language drama to feature a sympathetic homosexual protagonist, played by matinee idol Dirk Bogarde. In 2011, Andrew Haigh’s boy-meets-boy romance Weekend defied expectations to become a crossover art-house hit.

  23. Autostraddle's 50 Best Lesbian, Queer, and Bisexual Movies of the Decade's icon

    Autostraddle's 50 Best Lesbian, Queer, and Bisexual Movies of the Decade

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Whenever I’ve said to someone I was working on a Top 50 Lesbian+ Films of the Decade list I’ve been met with the same question: Were there really that many? The answer: Yes, of course. But there’s a follow-up question worth asking: If there were that many, why does it feel like there weren’t? The fact is most of the films about us — and especially the films by us — do not get the attention they deserve. They don’t get the budgets they deserve, the awards they deserve, the acclaim they deserve. But that’s why we exist — that’s why Autostraddle exists — because while we may not be able to fund the trans lesbian action movie of your dreams, we can remind you of the rare queer films that joined the zeitgeist and we can bring your attention to all the others you may have missed. The “short” list voted on by the entire Autostraddle team was 171 films. Voting took place in two parts: Everyone gave each film they’d personally seen a rating out of ten stars and then chose their top five favorites. The overall ratings were used to put together one list and the favorites were used to form another. Then those two lists were combined for what you see here. Films that had many people rate them were also weighted slightly higher on that list. The intention of this algorithm was to prioritize films featuring underrepresented groups while still not discrediting popularity. I wanted this list to bring attention to our favorite under-discussed movies, but also for it to act as a definitive reflection of the decade in lesbian+ cinema. Well, without further ado – here is the Autostraddle Best Lesbian+ Films of the Decade.
