The Ghost Writer (2010)

The Singing Forest (2003)
Adam & Steve (2005)
" Like Yentl herself, the movie is constantly in search of who and what it is, only finds itself thwarted by certain circumstances, and sails off the screen still searching, leaving us unsatisfied rather than uplifted "

The Raspberry Reich (2004)
" The Stonewall legend never really knows what to do with itself - we know that drag queens led the riots, but conservative gay activists are always happy to insert their own ancestors into the record. "
" Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve apparently drank litres of alcohol to get through their dreaded male-male kiss scene in Deathtrap, but you'll need something stronger than alcohol to stay interested in this movie. "

Summer Storm (Sommersturm) (2006)
" I think it's interesting that hetero coming-of-age, teen-love films tend to be broad frat-house comedies a la American Pie while gay versions on the theme lean towards a lushly romanticised, almost tragic vision of innocence lost. "
You'll Get Over It (2002)
" Bob Mizer was the enterprising creator of the Athletic Model Guild, a modelling agency and publishing house that celebrated 1950s-style beefacke bodybuilders through its R-rated magazine "Physique Pictorial" "
