“I see the dichotomies of Good Sandy v. Bad Sandy as something specifically magnetic for little baby gays, too, even if we were too baby to fully unpack that.”
This is not a lesbian film. It is merely a film starring two women bursting with sexuality. And when I was 14 it was my favorite film of all time.
Our team weighs in on 12 queer action/thrillers, from the Power Rangers to Atomic Blonde to Bound and beyond!
This is a movie about queer women for queer women. It’s about the way we hurt and the way we hurt each other.
“My favorite moment in the movie happens during the climax when one of the skinheads punches Judy. She punches him back. He calls her a dyke. And she says thank you.”

Join the team as we weigh in on ten classic coming-of-age lesbian films, from Pariah to Cameron Post to that one about the ravens!
Vampyros Lesbos is not my fantasy. But it is a fantasy. And, while this fills me some guilt, I do, in fact, enjoy it.

The film goes beyond mere representational milestones. It’s beautiful, it’s laugh-out-loud hilarious, it has two whole musical numbers, three whole Britney Spears references, and is just bursting with queer creativity!
This is a movie about lonely queers. And it’s a movie about queers who sometimes make baffling choices.
Anyone who watches Supergirl knows just how talented Nicole Maines is and she carries this movie with ease. She’s so casually present on screen and she absolutely kills a one-liner.
Our team weighs in on some of the funniest and least funny love and friendship stories in lesbian cinematic history, from Saving Face to Life Partners and so many more!
I have absolutely no idea if Chantal Akerman would be delighted or horrified that I’ve written about her 1974 film in a way that, if successful, will lead you to 1) seek out the mental healthcare that you need, and 2) masturbate.
Instead of counting down the days to see if we get three lines on The L Word reboot, we should be counting down the days until Simone gets to turn this short into a full-season show.
My favorite type of queer cinema classic is the kind that constantly begs the question: Is this real? Is this a real movie? Is this a real movie made in (insert year)?
