Here’s what I would be willing to do instead of watch this movie: Drink as many La Croixs as it would take to fill a bathtub in one sitting. Make a snowman with my bare hands out of the snow that’s been icing over for weeks. Walk across an oiled kitchen floor carrying a latte that I’m bringing to a person I don’t want to disappoint or embarrass myself in front of and also the kitchen is super long. Listen to someone try out every ringtone on their phone on a public bus.
Misery loves company. We know where this tale inevitably leads, but some pleasure precedes the axe.
I didn’t get to be at the set for the whole shoot, because I was teaching last year. I went once with my wife Erica and we got to go for a few days. I was in a daze of disbelief, touching people like, “Are you real?”
“Princess Cyd isn’t interested in the well-worn plot of queer sexual awakening, the torture of figuring out who you are and the fraught path you have to follow to let other people in on your secret. In fact, Princess Cyd isn’t really interested in plot (or secrets) at all. It’s a character study of two women who clumsily and gently brush up against each other and find new happiness because of it.”
15 horror movies that we can’t promise you won’t regret watching, but at least mostly avoid some of the more eye-rolling tropes of queer women in horror.
Natasha Negovanlis and Elise Bauman bring the magic to our laptops one more time.
Writer/director/longtime lesbian favorite Angela Robinson has done a really subversive thing with the most talked-about period film of the fall: She’s brought an ardent screenplay, a soaring score, and unapologetically gauzy sunlight to bear on the story of the man, his wife, and their lover who created the most iconic female superhero of all time in the hopes that she would prepare the world for matriarchal rule — and a healthy side of bondage.
“Billie Jean King — a gay icon, a feminist idol, one of the greatest athletes in history, an unshakable pillar of indomitable humanity here in 2017 — becomes even more powerful in Battle of the Sexes, but the film also offers audiences the gift of undoing her invincibility in our imaginations by allowing her to fall in love.”
Everyone who made this movie needs to go to bed.
If, on Saturday, you heard what you thought was the sound of a thousand queer humans shouting and then crashing to the floor as they fainted away like a bunch of goats, you were correct. That’s exactly what you heard.
Yup, we found 100 films for lesbian, bisexual and queer women that are good enough for one of our most epic lists of all time.
They’re nonchalant about their sexuality, confident in their bodies, and their chemistry together is an absolute joy on screen. I adore them.
Atomic Blonde is a stunning, queer action romp dressed in killer coats.
Just a neutral question.
Let her rest.
Honestly “lesbian nailing” could be the subtitle of this film, which features very loving shots of Toronto and a little bit of clothed dialogue and just a whole lot of sex.
How far is heaven?
Join us as we discuss this trailer for a Charlize Theron movie about a bisexual superspy who kills, just in the space of the trailer, about a dozen men with her hands before making out with a hot French lady spy.
Almost Adults isn’t perfect, but there’s a lot to love about a film that sidesteps so many traditional lesbian movie tropes. (Including: No one dies!)
