Default good lgbt films

I thought I might as well make a thread about this since LGBT films are relevant to my interests. Unfortunately it's hard to come across good ones.

Anyways I double-featured A Single Man and Chloe last night, and they were both really good.

Here's a list of other ones I have seen an enjoyed!

-Fried Green Tomatoes (heavily implied)
-C.R.A.Z.Y. (French/Canadian)
-Imagine Me and You
-Breakfast on Pluto
-D.E.B.S. ...................................
-Black Swan (romance isn't really at the forefront, but the character's sexuality is important to the plot)
-Boys Don't Cry
-oblig Brokeback Mountain

that's all i can think of off the top of my head

anyways if any of you know any good movies where the character drama/relationship stuff is the focus pls let me know because i like them (◕‿◕✿)

Chloe
Chloe is the shit.

I'd say Mulholland Drive, even though it isn't really an LGBT film (and is incredibly David Lynch). However the main character's emotional and sexual development is incredibly critical to the story.

Hellbent - It's a horror with a love story.
Mysterious Skin - Has a controversial plot but a good story.
Dog Tags - Kinda boring but I liked what it tried to do.

Off the top of my head The Naked Civil Servant and An Englishman in New York - both adapted from Quentin Crisp's books were pretty good.

I forgot about Shortbus. It's a movie that's partly about sex, but the director makes movies where the actors are actually doing it, so they're actually having sex. There's a lot of sex but it's not porn. Or I suppose it is, depending on how you look at it.

I liked the story.

EDIT: Wikipedia link.

+1

also The Talented Mr. Ripley, although the homoeroticism was more obvious in the book.

I forgot about Hedwig, which is amazing.

And "Another Gay Movie" which is fucking hilarious. It's basically a gay spoof of teen comedies, and I howl at it every time.

OMG WHAT AM I ALL ABOUT.

Weekend - One of the best films I've seen ever. I can't believe I forgot about it. It might seem a bit boring but it's all about subtlety, and it's incredibly well done.

I thought the relationship in I Love You Phillip Morris was good.
