The Ghost Writer (2010)
"Cattrall is still far too reminiscent of Samantha Jones, typecast forever probably, and her permanent sense of slutty double entrendre makes it impossible for her to be convincing as a cool, secretive aide. "
"Just like with Ali G and Borat, Sacha as Brüno tricks famous faces into doing ridiculous interviews. This includes singers Paula Abdul and Latoya Jackson, who both leave within minutes after being served sushi on a naked Mexican."
"The gay subplot is the highlight of the film. \Free of the slack pretensions that saturate the rest of Somersault, the sequences between Joe and Richard (Erik Thomson), an older guy who recognizes Joe's furtive glances, are concise and suspenseful."
"Armin Meiwes is currently in a German jail for biting and cutting off Bernd Brandes' penis, frying it and serving it as a light meal for the both of them, before slaughtering Brandes, carving his body into choice cuts and storing them in the fridge."
Cut Sleeve Boys (2007)
"This dreadful and inane minstrel show takes its title from a poem written by a Han Emperor who cut off the sleeve of his beautiful robe so he could get out of bed without waking his sleeping male concubine."
Paper Dolls (2006)
Broken Sky (2006)
Notes on a Scandal (2006)
"Does anyone else note the similarities between Cate Blanchett and Kate Bush? They have the same first names, physically resemble each other, remain aloof from tabloid hoopla, and share the same kind of elysian artistic genius."
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"
October Moon (2005)
Gay Sex in the 70s (2005)
The Object of My Affection (1998)
Law of Desire (1987)
" 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."
Wild Side (2005)
" Elliptic films of this type invariably drown in their own inscrutability but there's an emotional and psychological authenticity here that elevates Wild Side from the problems of its coma-inducing genre."
Burnt Money (2001)
Tying the Knot (2004)
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Bad Education (2004)
"Huma, a chain-smoking diva in the style of Bette Davis, doesn't seem to distinguish between her offstage self and her role as Blanche duBois, while Manuela becomes, for a moment, a fusion of Eve Harrington and Stella Kowalski."
Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (2005)
"Kilmer and Downey Jr spar well together, in several truly hilarious exchanges, but their characters are so well drawn and the Black's script so brainy that stale home/hetero tit-for-tats over handfuls of donuts during the stakeout do not occur."
Anatomy of Hell (2004)
"A beautiful but nameless woman (Amira Casar) tries to kill herself in the toilets of a gay disco. One of the gay clubbers, a handsome and also nameless man (Italian porn superstar Rocco Siffredi), rescues her."
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)
Death in Venice (1990)
"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""
Labyrinth of Passion (1982)
Food of Love (2003)
" Anthony Hopkins, made up to look about a hundred and fifty, plays a narrator who records Alexander's life at the library of Alexandria, a grand building which in this film looks more like Elton John's bathroom or the set for an ad for "Kouros"."
Paragraph 175 (2000)
"Made by the Academy Award winning team responsible for Common Threads: Stories From The Quilt, Paragraph 175 is a predictably excellent documentary that explores the haunting memories of a group of gay and lesbian Holocaust survivors with subtlety."
O Fantasma (2001)
" Murat lurks around public toilets and drag bars trying to find some entry point into his adulthood and eventually encounters Lola (Gandi Mukli), a drag performer who turns out to be Murat's estranged brother"
"Mandragora - or Mandrake - is a noxious plant named from two Greek words meaning "harmful to cattle". Reportedly hallucinogenic and used in the distant past as an anaesthetic before operations, it was fabled to grow under the gallows of hung men, thirstin"
"As his immune system declines, his need for affection increases, but when he hooks up with a hardcore sex gang, meets the charismatic Martín and decides to publish a frank autobiography, he drifts away from his supportive family"
200 American (2003)
The 24th Day (2004)
"Twenty-four days after he's learnt of his HIV seroconversion, Tom (Scott Speedman) tracks down Dan (James Madsen), who he believes infected him. Tom takes Dan home, handcuffs him to a chair and withdraws some of Dan's blood"
9 Dead Gay Guys (2002)
"a beautifully shot film with an affectingly melancholy heart. It's intelligent and innovative in several ways and I haven't seen a film that deals with a very young, HIV-positive gay guy in quite the ways that this film does"
Testosterone (Testosteroni) (2004)
"A perfectly titled film, since the fleeting mid-story appearance of Antonio Sabato Jr.'s **** was apparently all that was necessary to vacuum cash out of gay male film goers' wallets and into the box offices of gay and lesbian film festivals the world ove"
"Taxi Zum Klo (Taxi to the Toilet) is a remarkable AIDS-eve film that was scandalous in its day and still runs rings around self-proclaimed "edgy" queer films that bore us to death each year at the annual local gay and lesbian film festival"
Come Undone (2000)
"Stanley Kubrick once said that watching a film was like taking part in a controlled dream. But Presque Rien is really like the kind of daydream you might have at work, while you stare out the window waiting for five o-clock"
Garçon Stupide (2005)
