Head On
by Ana Kokkinos starring Alex Dimitriades, Paul Capsis, Julian Garner

Australia, 1998 104 mins VHS English

Graphic and highly erotic, the film's attention to character and its raw honesty evoke the literature of Burroughs and Genet. Co-written and directed by Kokkinos and based on a novel, "Loaded," by Christos Tsiolkas, "Head On" is a gritty and superb film.

Another Country
by Marek Kanievska starring Rupert Everett, Colin Firth

UK, 1984 86 mins VHS English

An elderly, exiled British spy looks back on his life at school during an interview with an American journalist. As he remembers his days at an English boarding school in the 1930s, the film moves to Britain chronicling his young life. In school, he falls in love with a young, male classmate, exploring his homosexuality. He is also exposed to Marxist ideas for the first time, both of which, ostensibly, contribute to his later activities as a spy.

Beautiful Thing
By Hettie Macdonald Starring: Glen Berry; Scott Neal; Ben Daniels

UK, 1996 90 mins VHS, copy English
Danish subtitles

Based on the stageplay of the same name by Jonathan Harvey, Hettie Macdonald's film debut delves into the working class housing projects of southeast London with all the sweet giddiness of the teenage love story that unfolds there.

Three teenage neighbors and their single parents live next door to one another. Leah (Tameka Empson), a young black woman, spends her days lip synching to Mama Cass and her nights getting drunk and partying. Next door is Jamie (Glen Berry), a quiet white boy who's always getting ribbed at school, he lives with Sandra, his pub manager mom who's constantly bickering with Leah. Next door to him is his schoolmate, Ste (Scott Neal), a young white jock who lives with his abusive father and older brother.

One night Ste is beaten up by his brother and finds refuge next door in Sandra's flat. As the two boys sleep side by side in bed, Jamie realizes he's in love with Ste.

Eventually, Ste realizes he's in love too and their teenage experimentation turns into a full blown love affair that blots out almost all the pain and sorrow in the rest of their lives. Director Macdonald is also drawn into this escapism, building on the excitement of what it's like to discover a whole new world. The film's traces of the saccharine underscore its familiar approach to first love (albeit with proletarian fags) and how audiences consume a love story as voyeurs.

In "Beautiful Thing," the working class realities that surround the young lovers may sometimes be adverse to their relationship, but it's still a place where love can flourish. In the final moments of the film, Macdonald sets her characters waltzing together in the bright daylight of the housing project's courtyard, reminding us that love is a fiction that has the possibility of transgressing every rule.

The Boys in the Band
By William Friedkin Starring Frederick Combs, Leonard Frey, Cliff Gorman

USA, 1970 118 mins VHS, copy English

"The Boys in the Band" was the first Hollywood film entirely about homosexuality. From our lengthy historical distance this depressing -- but always entertaining -- gay birthday party is an amusing period piece indeed. (PlanetOut)

Dona Herlinda and Her Son
by Jaime Humberto Hermosillo starring Arturo Meza, Marco Antonio Trevino, Guadalupe Del Toro

Mexico, 1985 90 mins VHS Spanish English subtitiles

A sophisticated social comedy directed by Jaime Humberto Hermosillo, one of Mexico's most daring, original filmmakers.

Dona Herlinda is a wealthy, fantastically manipulative widow living in Guadalajara who quietly accepts her son Rudolfo's affair with a handsome young music student, Ramon.

After she invites Ramon to live with her family ("Rudolfo has such a big bed," she says) the situation becomes hilariously complicated by Rudolfo's marriage of convenience to Olga, a feminist and employee of Amnesty International.

Dona Herlinda's comedy lies in watching Dona Herlinda flawlessly manipulate the people in her life while maintaining a Nancy Reagan-like facade of cool detachnent. Despite all the possibilities for disaster the characters in this film react to unbelievable situations with deadpan nonchalance.

Jaime Humberto Hermosillo has directed twelve features -- most dealing with the conventions and petty concerns of middle class society. Dona Herlinda is his third collaboration with producer Manual Barbachano Ponce, one of Mexico's most important independent film producers.

Cremaster 4 (1994)
Directed by Matthew Barney

Matthew Barney's "Cremaster 4" is an excellent example of what can be achieved in the area of video art. "Cremaster 4" contains no verbal dialogue, but exists purely in the visual (with audio accompaniment).

While not made with the budget and means of perhaps Barney's later "Cremaster 3," "Cremaster 4" is a successful enveiling of various processes that reference issues of gender and masculinity, sports, and Barney's own mythology/ iconography.

I believe what makes Barney's work so significant is his dealing with issues from contemporary American culture that artists previously either rejected or deemed unworthy as subject material.

Happy Together
Director: Wong Kar Wai, Starring: Leslie Cheung ; Tony Leung Chiu Wai ; Chang Chen

Hong Kong, 1997 98 mins VHS Chinese, English subtitles

The queer film genre of the obsessive love-hate gay male relationship is alive and well in this sultry tale. Happy Together starts out with sodomy a la spit under the worst flourescent light and recorded on the grainest of film stock.

The plot is simple: a handsome young gay male couple from Hong Kong has moved to Buenos Aires and there are countless scenes of kissing, tangos (yes male-male dancing), arguing, working at bad jobs, breaking beer bottles, breaking up, and searching for each other -- often in vain.

Fortunately for both the protagonists and the audience, the only assaults on the body are symbolic in the form of one lover's purposely hiding of the other's Hong Kong Overseas British passport. This film is a meditation on bitter sweet loss and misery as the purest form of love and eroticism. Southern Chinese gay male stud culture busts out in the land of the tango.

The Living End
by Gregg Araki starring Craig Gilmore, Mike Dytri

USA, 1991, 83 mins. VHS English

Two fatalistic L.A. boys--one's an impulsive, on-the-edge psycho cutie; the other listens to The Smiths a lot, and likes Godard movies--discover they're HIV positive and set about on an unplanned, unhinged serio-comic spree of violence and abandon. The Living End has been described as a homo Thelma & Louise, which is true enough--but it's also far more than that. Director Gregg Araki has taken on the issues and energy of gay youth in 1992, and turned them into a mad, anarchic and unsettlingly powerful experience. ("It's mostly set on the road," explains Araki. "It's like a Hope/Crosby movie . . . in which Crosby fucks Hope.")

Torch Song Trilogy
Directed by Paul Bogart
USA (1988) English

Award-winning actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein re-creates his role as the unsinkable Arnold Beckoff in this film adaptation of the smash Broadway play TORCH SONG TRILOGY.

A very personal story that is both funny and poignant, TORCH SONG TRILOGY chronicles a New Yorker's search for love, respect and tradition in a world that seems not especially made for him.

From Arnold's hilarious steps toward domestic bliss with a reluctant school teacher, to his first truly promising love affair with a young fashion model, Arnold's greatest challenge remains his complicated relationship with his mother.

But armed with a keenly developed sense of humor and oftentimes piercing wit, Arnold continues to test the commonly accepted terms of endearment--and endurance--in a universally affecting story that confirms that happiness is well worth carrying a torch for.

By Sturla Gunnarson Starring Eric Johnson, Brendan Fletcher, Bill Switzer

Canada, 2000 91 mins VHS, copy English Danish subtitles

Subtlety is not Scorn's strong suit. Its telling of the true story of a young British Columbia psychopath who decided to hurry along his inheritance by having his family killed spends so much time quoting and referencing Camus' Caligula that one wishes Gunnarson had just gone ahead and told his story as an actual adaptation of that play instead.

Yet, Eric Johnson's showpiece performance as the coldly manipulative Darren Huenemann is never less than electric. He imbues the character he's portraying with an innate sense of playing a part, a perfect choice in bringing to life a young man who is always striving to be 'on'.

The character's heightened sense of theatricality, however, often rubs up uncomfortably against the ordinariness of his western Canadian surroundings, leading to snatches of dialogue or sometimes whole scenes that you can't quite believe any of the other characters could ever take seriously. As portrayed, Darren is too large for these lives.

Supporting performances are largely TV-movie mediocre, but I should single out Brendan Fletcher for coming within a hair of stealing the movie for himself with his portrayal of Darren's right-hand man. Ultimately, he telegraphs the insecurities we suspect are inside him just a little too loudly -- an overly broad toss of his head, one too many twitches of his lip -- and destroys much of the air of danger that his character has been trying so desperately to create.

Nevertheless, the scene between him and Darren in the car post-murder speaks loudly about the differences in their personalities despite their seemingly similar lack of concern for others. Darren's friend acts tough to protect his true nature; Darren's behaviour is actually a refinement of the coldness already inside him

Totally F***ed Up
by Gregg Araki Starring: James Duval ; Gilbert Luna ; Roko Belic

USA, 1994 85 mins VHS English

Think of it as Jean Luc Godard doing "Saved by the Bell," or Antonioni doing "Beverly Hills 90210." Gregg Araki's Totally F***ed Up is a film very grounded in the L.A. thing.

Woo-woo, it's alienation galore as six homoteens bursting with angst hang around a landscape of empty parking structures, deserted car washes, swimming pools, and mind-numbing billboards to whine, kvetch and agonize about drugs, sex, dating, suicide, violence, family, identity, and homosexuality. Oh, and they get to wear really fab eyewear and neat thrift-store fashions while doing it.

Intercut with titles, clips of movies, porn, videos, and television bites, it's cynicism galore as teen romance and hormones *ucks with being young, queer, and in L.A.

by Basil Dearden starring Dirk Bogarde, Sylvia Syms, Dennis Price

UK, 1961 100 mins. VHS English

This groundbreaking thriller marked a major turning point for the subject of homosexuality onscreen. Dirk Bogarde stars as Melville Farr, a self-confessed, non-practicing homosexual, who risks his marriage and career to track down a ring of blackmailers (in 1961, 90% of all blackmail cases in the English courts were homosexual in origin).

Co-starring Sylvia Syms as his appalled but supportive wife, Peter McEnery as Boy Barrett (Bogarde's chaste "friend" who hangs himself in jail), and a brilliant batch of queer supporting characters. With its vivid London locations and fast-paced suspense, Pauline Kael called Victim "ingenious." In the wake of the British government's 1957 Wolfenden Report (recommending the decriminalization of homosexuality) Victim consciously set out to change British law and the public's perceptions of homosexuality. Six years later, the Sexual Offenses Act of 1967 finally decriminalized homosexuality between consenting adults over the age of 21 (with a number of exceptions).
