Rating Title/Year Author
Clementine (2019) Sarah Fonseca This is not a story of winning a lover back, or getting over a lover with another. It's a languid story of learning to sit with uneasiness, smartly guised as a genre piece. EDIT

The Skin of the Teeth (2019) Sarah Fonseca Matthew Wollin's first feature might be a shoestring indie with only two settings - a bachelor pad and a police station interrogation room - and a single camera set-up, but it keeps us enraptured until the very end. EDIT

Knife + Heart (2018) Sarah Fonseca There is suspense, sex. There are slayings. Yet often, we are instructed to approach with caution, as we are often their casualties. This difference in Knife+Heart is that queer characters are allowed prominent roles in their own tale. EDIT

Les garçons sauvages (2017) Oliver Whitney Though Mandico's debut feature may seem to be a clever and provocative tale about gender identity and eradicating toxic masculinity, it's pure gender essentialism. EDIT

Thelma (2017) Sarah Fonseca Horror allows Thelma to work with the history queer people have been dealt; the genre never requests an apology for yesterday's transgressions, but it might seek reparations by giving the viewer a few spooks. EDIT

Disobedience (2017) Sarah Fonseca Ronit's complexity never fully comes across in the film... EDIT

Lizzie (2018) Sarah Fonseca In a moment where women and femmes are, in unprecedented numbers, demanding that their abusers be held accountable, this period drama is not without comfort. EDIT

Jennifer's Body (2009) Sarah Fonseca Jennifer's Body now ticks all of the boxes for what film audiences are now desperately demanding from Hollywood... EDIT

The Owls (2010) Sarah Fonseca Cruelly ahead of its time... EDIT

Safe (1995) Sarah Fonseca Intended to be an exploration of the attitudes and anxiety surrounding the AIDS crisis, Safe still possesses the ability to leave viewers breathless and squirming in their seats. EDIT

C Colette (2018) Sarah Fonseca Because Colette, like its Willy, is obsessed with Colette as a docile young girl and the early literary works that bottle her youth, we never get to fully experience Colette's wisdom or queer catharsis. EDIT

A- The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) Sarah Fonseca Given its chilly setting and its snarky teens, Cameron is bound to be compared to Jamie Babbit's 1999 ex-gay camp comedy But I'm a Cheerleader. Yet each film holds its own very well. EDIT
