Aimee & Jaguar is a rare film, it leaves the audience weeping about the dire consequences an intense love has wrought, but exhilarated over the existence of such love. From the first bars of the mournful lush score we know this story won't end well, but the journey takes us to a place of love we have seldom seen in a film. Aimee tells the true story of Lilly (Kohler) and Felice (Schrader), lovers in WWII Germany. Lilly Wust is married to a Nazi officer away at the front and has many affairs while her handsome husband is gone. Felice is the leading light of her circle of lesbians, in love with Ilse (Wokalek), but smitten with Lilly. Felice knows that the relationship is impossible, but she doesn't care, she's headstrong and she's met her soul mate. Felice is not only a lesbian, but Jewish as well prime target for the Nazis to ship off to the camps. The story is told through flashbacks when Lilly is an old woman being brought to a retirement home where she happens to meet another of their circle from the war. A touching film that tells an intense story told without Hollywood syrup, Bravo!

Lesbian Film Review of All Over Me

Lesbian Film Review of All Over Me

All Over Me (1997)

While gay and lesbian coming-of-age films seem to be a dime a dozen, this tender drama of a gawky teenager's realization of her lesbianism is far from ordinary. For this independently made film from the Sichel sisters (Alex and Sylvia) wonderfully captures the growing pains of adolescence and the joy, tentativeness and excitement of the protagonist's emerging lesbian identity. Set in New York's Hell's Kitchen area, the story focuses on Claude (Alison Follard) and her best friend Ellen (Tara Subkoff) during the hot summer. Claude feels completely alone, suffering not only from the typical neurocies of adolescence but from her unrequited love for Ellen, who is enthusiastically straight. Moody and uncommunicative, with only the music of Patti Smith to sooth her soul, Claude eventually finds solace with a wannabe riot grrrl and fellow baby dyke Lucy. A story about change, separation and self-discovery that is both knowing and amazingly sensitive. Gay teen actor Wilson Cruz co-stars.

 The mating rites and the accompanying mind games of L.A. lesbians are uncovered in this knowing romantic comedy. Lauran Hoffman's script (based on her autobiographical play) centers most of the action at the West Hollywood Girl Bar where "love" comes easy and often for its denizens and where warm flesh can sometimes be only a tequila away. Loretta (Nancy Allison Wolfe), a writer and one of the bar's bed-hopping regulars, meets and all-too-quickly falls for the self-assured Rachel (Liza D'Agnostino), a bewitching aspiring actress. Their union is threatened, however, when J.R. (Camilla Riggs), an attractively butch cop, enters the scene. The sex-induced theatrics of these and other characters are detailed in both a humorous and dramatic fashion and, unlike the buoyantly chipper Go Fish, the women in Bar Girls are not entirely likable. While the acting is unremarkable, the staging uninspired and the production values minimal, the film nevertheless is endowed with spunky charm which ultimately wins the viewer over.

Samy's Flick Pick!

Winner of Audience Awards in the Philadelphia, London and Toronto Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals, this wildly enjoyable and refreshingly sexy tale tells of lesbian love winning against all the odds. When 19-year-old red head Maggie’s nutty mother calls and says she is moving in – Maggie, who quit law school and has been sleeping on the couch of the lesbian bookstore – must find a sublet apartment and make it livable fast. To complicate matters, she has just met the sultry Kim, an artistic road warrior who has rolled in to town quickly moved into her heart and into her new home. But Maggie hasn’t come out to her mother yet so its time to hide the sex toys and “straighten up.” Add to the picture her lovesick best friend Judy, a MTF transsexual estranged from her family; her uptight lesbian boss; and Maggie’s randy teen brother who gets a few lessons on life, and you get this boisterous and entertaining romantic comedy of errors and the frailty of the human heart. Better Than Chocolate is a raucous roller coaster of campy exploits and over-the-top situations with a gorgeous cast and a playful attitude towards sex. Body paint sales will skyrocket across the city because of one particularly sexy scene between the two young and gorgeous leads. Issues such as coming out, hate crimes and the continuing debate about the acceptance of transgenderism in the community are touched on with intelligence and sensitivity and humor. Adding to this wonderful romance is music by Bif Naked, Ani DiFranco, Ferron and Sara Mclachlan. A mad frolic of a movie, great for a first date or a hot and heavy night on the town.

Lesbian Film Review of The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant

Lesbian Film Review of The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant

The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972) - English Subtitles
Starring: Margit Carstensen, Hanna Schygulla
Director: Rainer Werner Fassbinder

Boy, oh, boy! The crankiest lesbians you'd ever want to see just talking and fighting, talking and drinking, talking and dancing to the Platters! I can't think of a better way to spend two hours. This one's amazing. Perhaps the ultimate Fassbinder: excruciating for many, sheer heaven for a lucky few. When brittle but oh-so-vulnerable Petra, wearing her bizarre Wagneresque 'gown' with the glittery pretzel-shaped décolletage, puts "In My Room" on the phonograph and starts bitching to gorgeous, scheming Karin about her first marriage, it'll send you into the stratosphere. Kinky, trashily hilarious, profound and political -- what more could you possibly want in a movie?

Lesbian Film Review of Bound

Bound (1996)
Starring: Gina Gershon, Jennifer Tilly. Director: Larry Wachowski, Andy Wachowski

In this stunning debut feature, the brothers Wachowski have accomplished a remarkable feat: They've taken a tried-and-true cinematic formula (film noirish plans, scams and betrayal) and added a very '90s sensibility to it, not to mention a major lesbian plot angle, without losing any of the thrill, intrigue, or snappy dialogue which characterized its '40s counterparts. Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly star as neighbors who become lovers first, then partners in crime. Or as Gershon says, "I can fuck somebody when I've just met them; but to steal with them, I have to know them better than myself." The question for the rest of the film then becomes who will betray whom. The intelligent script avoids every cliché it approaches and is constantly taking the viewer into new angles of the familiar story line. Bound is an unexpected accomplishment, stylishly shot and edge-of-your-seat tense, and both actresses give their best performances to date. It is also a landmark for its depiction of its lesbian heroines.

Singer-musician Joan (Goldberg), reeling from the break-up of her latest band, takes a ride-share to L.A. with Robin (Parker), a seemingly pristine yuppie who bemoans the crash of the real estate market. En route, they stop to visit Joan's friend Holly (Barrymore), interrupting her savage beating at the hands of her scummy boyfriend. The swiftly moving odyssey which follows is punctuated by strong characterizations. Fine cinematography indulges the glowing desert vistas of Tucson, a pit stop which extends to include birth and death. The film flirts with mawkishness during the last half-hour, only momentarily crossing the line. While comparisons to Thelma and Louise are to be made, the film's more about survival than allegory. And that's its gritty strength.

Lesbian Film Review of Butterfly Kiss

Butterfly Kiss (1996)

Butterfly Kiss is a serious movie about love. at times frightening, it is a tally of sordid plot, extremely believable characters, and offers a serious chance to view a relationship and things most folks would never care to experience in person. Both powerful and disturbing.

Making a hyperspace jump from his previous two efforts, writer-director Smith has fashioned a very funny, insightful and painfully honest romantic comedy for the '90s. Affleck plays a popular comic book artist who befriends Amy (Adams), a lesbian, at a comic book convention. Their friendship develops, but he finally breaks down and confesses his love for her. At first angry, she soon declares similar feelings and they begin a relationship. That is, until he discovers her sordid, straight past, which he can't stop obsessing over. Some remarkably mature observations about love and relationships are made by Smith, particularly in his recurring role as "Silent Bob." Gone are the bathroom jokes and farcical nonsense which ruined Mallrats. This is an accomplished, enjoyable movie which accurately pokes fun at a variety of modern relationships (straight, gay and bi) and even manages a few honestly tear-jerking sequences. Lee has also come a long way from Mallrats, bringing humor and texture to the role of the "other man." And look for Matt Damon in a tiny role.
