Pride Month Challenge - Day 12

This post is part of a series originally called "30 Day LGBT Challenge" which asks queer-related questions to be answered during Pride Month.  The original questions can be found here.

Question 12 is:Your favorite LGBT Queer movie (or one you’d like to see).

I do watch quite a few movies, many of which are not... uh... great?  But I'll put the ones that amused or enlightened me here anyway:
  1. My favorite queer documentary is "The Celluloid Closet."  "Paris is Burning" is also a classic.
  2. An interesting film I'd recommend any radical queer watch just once is "The Raspberry Reich." It is pornographic and has revolting acting but is insightful and interesting.
  3. A movie I like that I probably shouldn't?  "I Love You Phillip Morris," which features a pair of gay men who fall in love in prison, one of whom repeatedly breaks them out.  This is based on a true story.
  4. Probably my favorite queer movie of all time--and this requires a HUGE HUGE HUGE trigger warning for basically everything--is "Bent."  This is a soul-crushing movie about two men who fall in love in a German concentration camp.
