Movie Info

Gay, lesbian, and transgender filmmakers, actors, and critics explore the history of queer cinema in this made-for-cable documentary. Eschewing any overarching narration, co-directors Lesli Klainberg and Lisa Ades illustrate archival footage and film clips with dozens of interviews. They also provide timelines and factoids to punctuate the discussion of specific eras. Although the background material and the interviewees allude to the subtext of Hollywood classics, the bounty of world cinema,

Interesting, but not very informative or thorough. An impressive panel of experts.

What I loved about this film is it shows to the history of "queer" in (mostly) american cinema, from an early occurence, but all explains the social and political history of America in the time of the highlighted films.
It also touches on some of my favourite films and directors as well, which is great when you want to learn more about film and social history. Especially John Waters.
