Licensed to Kill
Higher on the moral hierarchy than a passion to see evil avenged, higher even than a mindless reflex to forgive, is the desire to understand evil's root causes. Case in...
Film Review  October 24, 1997, by Russell Smith
"...Higher on the moral hierarchy than a passion to see evil avenged, higher even than a mindless reflex to forgive, is the desire to understand evil's root causes. Case in point: Filmmaker Arthur Dong (Coming Out Under Fire), a onetime victim of gay-bashing whose rigorously unsentimental documentary gives seven murderers of homosexual men a chance to explain, as best they can, why they did it..."

Little Ashes
Robert Pattinson costars as Salvador Dalí in this sexually speculative history of the artist's student years spent with friends, Federico García Lorca and Luis Buñuel.
Film Review  August 7, 2009, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Who knows? Maybe the tweeners who flocked to Twilight will find Pattinson’s Dalí equally irresistible (in fact, I personally know one girl who spent many teenage hours swooning in front of Dalí’s melting clocks in the Museum of Modern Art). However, this tame yet R-rated story about repressed homosexual desire and the rise of Spanish fascism is unlikely to capture the hearts of many who are not already familiar with the lives and works of this group of artists..."

The Twilight of the Golds
Originally filmed for Showtime, this adaptation of Jonathan Tolins' controversial stage play has the look and flavor of its made-for-television origins, though the subject matter remains as incendiary as ever....
Film Review  February 6, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...Originally filmed for Showtime, this adaptation of Jonathan Tolins' controversial stage play has the look and flavor of its made-for-television origins, though the subject matter remains as incendiary as ever. Specifically, if you knew in advance that your unborn male child would stand a strong chance of turning out homosexual, would you choose to have the child nevertheless? This inflammatory eugenics question is at the heart of the story here, though Marks (and writer Tolins, who adapted his play for the screen with Seth Bass) cloaks the issue in the swaddling clothes of a bitterly divided family unit..."

The Happy Prince
Tragic Oscar Wilde biopic flies sporadically
Film Review  October 26, 2018, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The final three years of Oscar Wilde’s life, which are dramatized in The Happy Prince, were a dark period much at odds with the public perception of the author as a successful writer and bon vivant acclaimed throughout Europe and North America. These years, 1897-1900, follow Wilde’s release from jail after serving two years of hard labor for the crime of “gross indecency” (i.e., homosexual behavior)..."

The Shape of Water
An unconventional love story from one of the best fabulists
Film Review  December 8, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...Assisted by her African-American co-worker/best friend Zelda (Spencer), she spirits the creature away from the G-men and into the bathtub at her apartment, where the bond between the two blossoms into something far richer. Elisa’s homosexual neighbor Giles (Jenkins) also assists the ruse, until the inevitable discovery of the abduction occurs and all manner of chaos ensues...."

Doc goes beneath the surface of competitive endurance tickling
Film Review  July 8, 2016, by Josh Kupecki
"...Ever delving into the obscure corners of the internet, he comes across a video depicting “competitive endurance tickling,” and his interest is piqued. But when he reaches out to the company producing the videos, Jane O’Brien Media, he is immediately inundated with a barrage of increasingly hostile and vitriolic responses, warning him to drop his inquiry and viciously disparaging his homosexual lifestyle (Farrier is openly gay)..."

A Midwestern boy comes out amid the backdrop of the Stonewall Riots
Film Review  September 25, 2015, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Stonewall uses a device common to films set against historical backgrounds by anchoring the story in a naive protagonist who’s a newcomer on the scene. Danny (Irvine) arrives on New York’s famed Christopher Street fresh from Indiana, which he fled because of his homosexual proclivities..."

The Imitation Game
Brilliant World War II codebreaker Alan Turing, whose story is told here, was a pioneering figure in computer science as well as a closeted homosexual.
Film Review  December 26, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...Its subject, Alan Turing, was a pioneering figure in computer science who led the covert group at Bletchley Park that broke the Nazi Enigma code; many credit those cryptologists with winning the war. He was also a closeted homosexual, and was prosecuted for it in 1952, when it was still a criminal act to be gay in Great Britain..."

In this inspirational true story, striking Welsh miners and the local LGBT community find common bonds.
Film Review  October 10, 2014, by William Goss
"...In 1984, homosexual teen Joe (MacKay) quietly joins the ranks of an LGBT group led by Mark (Schnetzner), a group which in turn attempts to raise money among their own London community in order to support the families of miners on strike in rural Wales, with the hope that each group can help one another with their respective political crusades. While the blue-collar locals are reluctant to publicly align themselves with perceived sexual deviants, town leaders Cliff (Nighy) and Hefina (Staunton) embrace their much-needed generosity all the same, gradually advancing a mutually progressive agenda in the process...."

A Single Man
Tom Ford ditched fashion designing for filmmaking with this smart adaptation of the Christopher Isherwood story about a grieving gay man in 1962 California.
Film Review  January 15, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...George Falconer (Firth) is a middle-aged British ex-pat teaching at a university in sunny Southern California in 1962. A closeted homosexual by cultural necessity, he's possessed of monumental outward conformity..."

Madame Satã
Life story of Brazilian drag diva from the last half-century.
Film Review  October 24, 2003, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Curiously, this is the conclusion of the movie. While the depiction of the Lapa district and the details of repressed homosexual life in Rio 10 years ago is always intriguing, we come away learning very little about the individual known as Madame Satã..."

The Trip
The Trip begins with a police car zipping dramatically along a desert highway. A scorpion skitters along a rock in extreme close-up, and the soundtrack swells. Then writer-director Swain pulls...

Film Review  April 20, 2001, by Marjorie Baumgarten

But I'm a Cheerleader
Campy film is fun viewing and shines light on lipstick lesbians who are willing to put their pom-poms where their mouths are.
Film Review  July 28, 2000, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...After all, she's a good Christian and a cheerleader. Thank goodness her concerned parents (Stole and Cort) stage an intervention and ship her off to True Directions, a homosexual rehabilitation facility run by an over-the-top homophobe (Moriarty) and one of her reprogrammed gay men (Charles)..."

I'm the One That I Want
Stand-up comedian Margaret Cho makes fun of her mother … a little bit. When Cho leans her head back at a disapproving angle, her eyes narrow to slits and her...
Film Review  July 14, 2000, by Bryan Poyser
"...But you also get the idea that their relationship is an open and loving one that crosses their very obvious generational boundaries. After Cho's first homosexual experience while performing comedy on board a lesbian cruise-liner, her mother leaves a one-sentence message on her answering machine: “Are you gay?!” The amazing thing is not so much Mom's lack of tact, but that Cho told her about the experience in the first place..."

By turns a campy goof on 1950s muscle-mag culture, a slackerly attempt at investigative journalism, and a heartfelt elegy to an inscrutable pop-culture obscurity, Thom Fitzgerald's semi-biopic often seems to...
Film Review  January 14, 2000, by Russell Smith
"...Mizer, a doting mama's boy who dressed like Clark Kent's less bohemian brother, espoused a Jack Armstrong-like code of traditional manly virtue and wholesomeness. He was also a closeted homosexual whose world-class feats of artistic sublimation produced as many as a million still photos and countless films featuring oiled and buffed young studs prancing around dressed as bikers, cowboys, Roman centurions, and the like..."

The Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender
Who would have thought that deconstructionism could be so much fun? Although on the surface similar to the more conventional documentary The Celluloid Closet, The Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender...
Film Review  August 21, 1998, by Steve Davis
"...Rather, it takes you through the looking glass to reveal a seemingly queer subtext in the movies produced by the Golden Age of Hollywood that will have you scratching your head in bewildered wonder. Using a sampling of film clips that span from the Thirties to the Sixties to explore his hypothesis of latent meaning, director and screenwriter Rappaport (Rock Hudson's Home Movies, From the Journals of Jean Seberg) slyly engages in acts of deconstruction for the purpose of showing that while homosexual love may not have dared speak its name directly, it might have done so in code..."

Film Review  June 19, 1998, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...This film portrait of Oscar Wilde, which is based on Richard Ellman's biography of the artist, is a solid, engaging presentation of the man and his times. The film focuses on Wilde's rise to fame as a great wit, writer, and dandy, as well as his subsequent slide into notoriety as England's most famously abhorred and persecuted homosexual..."

Film Review  January 30, 1998, by Russell Smith
"...The reason for the split, Grace confides, was that her hubby discovered her fling with a fellow (female) nurse. While Alex ponders this news another friend, the brazenly inverted Spencer (Hallum) is pulling the chains of local homophobes by telling them there's something in the local water supply that releases latent homosexual potential..."

Who knew that a riot led by drag queens outside a nondescript Greenwich Village bar called the Stonewall over 25 years ago would be mythologized as the birth of the...
Film Review  September 20, 1996, by Steve Davis
"...Stonewall attempts to compress the sociocultural context in which this seminal event occurred into a two-hour running time; it succeeds, for the most part, in its objective. It accurately portrays the apolitical black and Hispanic drag queens as unwitting revolutionaries who simply refused to take more abuse; it effectively depicts the benign nature of homosexual organizations such as the Mattachine Society, which sought acceptance in the straight world through nonconfrontational means..."

Billy Madison
After his stint at SNL, Adam Sandler broke out as a movie star with this comedy.

Film Review  February 17, 1995, by Joey O'Bryan
"...Of course, there's also a totally gratuitous, not to mention totally illogical, romance with an elementary-school teacher (an insulting role, played with a "good sport" indifference by Wilson), along with the usual business rivalry with a scumbag opportunist, but does any of it really matter? Of course not, because Billy Madison even fails as a goofy, formulaic time-filler. With incredible dialogue gems like "If peeing in your pants made you cool, I'd be Miles Davis!" and supposedly hilarious set-pieces involving flaming bags of shit, homosexual teachers doubling as masked wrestlers, and giant rampaging penguins, it's not hard to imagine this film becoming a "so-bad-it's-good" favorite somewhere down the road..."

She is a Man, He is a Woman
One of the top-grossing films in Hong Kong this year, this light romantic comedy rises above its clichéd plotting and emerges as a decent time-waster, thanks mainly to swell performances...
Film Review  December 16, 1994, by Joey O'Bryan
"...If this scenario sounds less than awe-inspiring, credit the actors for pulling the whole thing off, creating solid characters the audience can care about. Carina Lau is wonderfully bitchy as Rose, while Leslie Cheung, as Sam, finds a solid balance between comedy and drama as he wrestles with his sexual identity, convinced that he's really a homosexual due to his desires and growing love for what he thinks is a man..."

"...Fact. During that holiday, the working-class, street tough Lennon and the upper-class, Jewish, homosexual Epstein shared a dance of mutual curiosity, attraction and avoidance..."

Edward II
To describe Edward II as “high concept” doesn't even begin to nail down its complexity. What British director Jarman has done here is rework Christopher Marlowe's 16th century play in...
Film Review  May 1, 1992, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...What British director Jarman has done here is rework Christopher Marlowe's 16th century play in terms of modern sexual politics. Jarman has taken all the latent homosexual subtext in Marlowe's original and brought it front and center -- and then some..."

Ruby has the look of a cheap knockoff hustled along to cash in on the success of Oliver Stone's JFK. They get the period details right and the cheesy sets...
Film Review  April 3, 1992, by Kathleen Maher
"...Unfortunately, the scriptwriters didn't deign to give him a brain, a rationale or much of a life. There are only some romantic and hazy notions that Ruby was a nice man, possibly homosexual, who made friends with strippers, cops and dogs..."

Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol
Warhol probably would like this movie. But that's not to say it's anything other than Workman-like. Superstar perpetuates all the enigmas Warhol so loved to shroud himself in. Warhol the...
Film Review  August 2, 1991, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...But there's also something very spurious going on here. There are so many facets of Warhol's life that are barely (if at all) touched on: the drugs, the voyeurism, the Catholicism, the generosity, the homosexual aesthetic, the late society portraitist years, the invited guest at the Reagan inaugural..."
