A sensitive yet humorous adaptation of the stage play, this 1970 film directed by William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist) is one of the first films to openly address gay issues in a matter-of-fact style that largely avoids stereotyping. Shot on one set and featuring a birthday party as the festive setting, a group of friends assemble to celebrate, reminisce, and discuss their lives and the travails of being gay, even as one friend insists he's straight.

Gay Movie Review of Broadway Damage

Gay Movie Review of Broadway Damage (1998)

Broadway Damage (1998)
Director: Victor Mignatti

Catching the recent wave of gay-themed films which eschew troubling subjects like AIDS, homophobia and coming out for a more sunny, cute-boys-in-love romanticism (Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss, I Think I Do) is this sugary, determinedly optimistic love story. At times funny, and occasionally charming in its innocence, the film can be a bit much for those jaded by relationships and toughened by sexual oppression. The story revolves around the ambitions and loves of three wide-eyed dreamers trying to become a success in Manhattan. They include aspiring actor Marc (Michael Shawn Lucas); his mop-headed best friend and would-be musical composer Robert (Aaron Williams), who's secretly in love with Marc; and Marc's ditsy Greenwich Village roommate Christina (Mara Hobel, the young Christina in Mommie Dearest), an exuberant shopaholic and the only one of the three with some serious emotional problems. Will the two young men get together, or will the sexy new stud in town steal Marc's heart? For most viewers, a pleasant romantic gay comedy. But one gripe; are gay filmmakers, bred on films that used stereotyped homosexual characters for comic relief, now using women (with jokes on their weight, inability to get a man and their mental state) in that offensive role?

In his feature film debut, openly gay writer/director Greg Berlanti (co-executive producer of Dawson’s Creek with Kevin Williamson) has crafted a funny, touching slice-of-life portrait on the lives and loves of a group of gay West Hollywood friends. The characters include Dennis (Olyphant), a promising photographer, his housemate Cole (Dean Cain of TV’s Superman), a charming man-stealing actor; Benji (Zach Braff), a punkish gym bunny fancier; analytical grad student Howie (Matt McGrath, Lonny in Boys Don’t Cry); cynical quipster Patrick (Weber) and his lesbian sister whose lover (Long) wants his sperm; and Taylor (Porter) whose long-term relationship goes on the rocks. They all hang out at a restaurant run by the group’s unofficial patriarch, Jack (John Mahoney of Frasier) and play together on a softball team coached by Jack (a part-time drag performer). Drama abounds, especially when Cole seduces and abandons the fragile, just-out-of-the-closet Kevin (Keegan) leaving Dennis to help pick up Kevin’s emotional pieces. A witty and entertaining comedy/drama that offers an attractive cast and a touching story of gay men’s romances and friendship.

This film takes a righteous swipe at two much loved and pernicious stock in trades of Hollywood - the man child and stalker. It challenges the audience to look at why it seems to approve these stereotypes and what assumptions underlie their popularity. No wonder some run screaming. More fool them. This film has more heart and soul than several years worth of most studios output. Tremendous directing, acting and writing. As for the question about Charlie's behavior near the end. Not all apparently 'straight' men are entirely straight and this film attempts to acknowledge that they have their struggles. (click through to Amazon to read more)

18-Year old Mathieu is vacationing at the beach with his family when he meets local teen Cedric. After an extremely erotic kiss, the boys begin a hot and heavy affair, complete with skinny-dipping at night, nude dancing on the beach and lovemaking in the dunes. As Mathieu grapples with his sexuality, his bond with Cedric grows stronger. Gorgeous, bronzed bodies on the beaches of France and a passionate romance between two French youths are reason enough to love Come Undone, but this bittersweet film also has something poignant to say about gay first love.

This was East Germany's first gay-themed film, which reportedly received it's premiere on the same night the Berlin Wall came down. It's a gripping story of a very handsome young man - Phillip- searching for his true sexual identity. Philip is a "straight" schoolteacher whose repressed homosexuality is ignited after meeting an old school chum with whom he had a gay affair. Phillip makes a late night visit to a gay/drag bar and goes home with Matthias - they make love through the long, slightly drunken night. The next morning he returns to his girlfriend and in homosexual panic, marries her. Phillip cannot get Matthias out of his head and becomes obssesed with the beautiful memory of their one night together. Obviously his marriage breaks up and he comes out of the closet, taking great risks with his career in repressed East Germany. There's lots of love-making in this tender tale that is reminiscent of the quasi-autobiographical films involving schoolteachers Taxi Zum Klo and Nighthawks. This is a sentimental, sexy and frank tale which offers a rare glimpse into the "perils" of homosexuality behind the now destroyed Iron Curtain. (German with subtitles)

Gay Movie Review of Death in Venice

Death in Venice

Death in Venice was Britten's final opera--an extraordinarily atmospheric and haunting adaptation of Thomas Mann's novella, evoking the grandeur and shabbiness of a Venice in the grip of disease. He eloquently and evocatively describes the moral and physical degeneration of Aschenbach, the writer whose obsessive pursuit of beauty in the form of a boy leads him into humiliation and death. Robert Tear takes the demanding role of Aschenbach opposite Alan Opie, who sings the various baritone parts. To portray the beauty and fascination of the Polish family and Tadzio, Britten made prominent the use of dance, by turning these characters into dancers, choreographed in this production by Martha Clarke.

This earnest low budget drama centers around a college student who is forced to come to terms with his closeted gay sexuality. Griff (Daniel Chilson) is a seemingly happy jock who blends in comfortably with his sex-starved, towel-snapping, group-showering fraternity brothers at a Southern California University. But, in reality, he’s a gay man who has been clandestinely involved with Pete (Don Handfield), his cute boyhood friend. An argument ensues after Pete begins to pressure him to be more open about their relationship. After they part, Pete is attacked by gay-bashers, an action which leads Griff to question his life of lies. While the plot outline may seem like a gay After School Special, the film does raise some important issues. It is most effective in debunking the myth that the trauma of coming out is a thing of the past or affecting only those in rural or suburban settings — it demonstrates quite well that accepting one’s sexual self can be just as difficult for inner city college students today.

A compelling character study -- revolving around the confused relationship between a 17-year-old Memphis student and a slightly older Vietnamese immigrant -- that makes for a fascinating tale of sexual, social and racial differences and injustices. Lincoln (Grey) is a darkly handsome youth who, though having a girlfriend, cruises the city's parks after dark for furtive sexual encounters with other men. There, and later in a peep show store, he meets Minh, a talkative but somewhat troubled young man and the son of a black GI and a Vietnamese woman. Minh takes a liking to the shy Lincoln and they soon set up a strange, quasi-sexual friendship that quickly results in a boat ride deep down the Mississippi Delta in a modern Tom and Huck adventure. These two opposites -- Lincoln, the privileged white teen, and Minh, the poor foreigner -- form a bond that inevitably leads to trouble... 

Gay Movie Review of Drift
Gay Film - Drift

Drift (2001)
Director: Quentin Lee

Purchase Links for this Gay Film
DVD / Video - TLA Films USA Region 1 DVD - Amazon USA

A deft exploration of what might happen if someone's life took different paths. Ryan (R.T. Lee) is an aspiring screenwriter who's been seeing Joel (Greyson Dayne) for almost three years--and then he meets Leo (Jonathon Roessler) at a party and thinks he may have found his soul mate, a lover who will understand him fully. Drift then follows what would happen if Ryan and Leo fell madly in love, if they just had a fling, and if Leo didn't share Ryan's feelings at all. What makes the movie work is how well realized the characters are; as the different scenarios mark out each turn of fate, their behavior changes but is completely compelling as the actions of the same person. The movie is tightly edited, so that just when it threatens to wallow in relationship drama, it moves forward. Plus, the steamy sex scenes have more heft because of the reality of the emotions portrayed.

Trenchant (if unnecessarily violent) adaptation of the Christopher Marlowe play, written in 1592, about the downfall of the openly gay British monarch who rejects his queen for a male lover. Despite 14th-century setting, some characters wear contemporary clothing, and film works quite well as a condemnation of 20th-century gay-bashing.

A gay man's (Platonic) relationship with a woman has been much explored of late, and this simple but enjoyable tale is one of the better ones on the subject. The comedy-drama focuses on the developing friendship between a hyperactive straight woman from Brooklyn and a young gay man set adrift after the death of his lover.
