"The Ornithologist" (2017) looks interesting https://youtu.be/V7RI99uDEVQ

The film features full frontal male nudity for those who are offended by that sort of thing ;)

"Straightman" (1999) interesting micro budget film about two blue collar  friends and how their live changes when one of them comes out as gay.

"Leather" (2013) this sometimes felt more like a play than a movie and the film making could have been better- but the gay romance is sweet.https://youtu.be/kx62W6uZii4    It will make you want to head for upstate New York ;)

"Seed Money: The Legend of Falcon Studios" good documentary about the MGM of porn studios and how it's founder Chuck Holmes used his x rated  fortune for gay political causes.  The film is unrated so they do include plenty of scenes from the Falcon library but nothing really hardcore. The extras are good specially an interview with Tom Chase.https://youtu.be/9Z2OiP4hQ98

Javier Barden co-stars in "Second Skin" ( Segunda Piel) (1999) about a doctor who falls in love with a married man https://youtu.be/mF0_nKQdpR0 

The trailer seems pretty tame but you can google a rather explicit sex scene between the men. I never heard of this movie I wonder if it was ever released in the U. S.

At the end of the film, there's a black and white snapshot of Liza Minnelli (in the company of Halston) - if ever anybody became associated with wild behavior (that turned self-destructive), it is LIZA MINNELLI.

Everything went on there - you name it, they did it! - there's even a goat that's running around in one of the scenes at Studio 54.

 

Sounds wild.

Right...why tell the story with that setting, and then not be true to what went on there?

I thought it was Meyer putting the moves on Ryan... but seriously how can you make a film about such hedonistic place like "Studio 54" in which everyone was either high or they having sex of every persuasion and cut out the gay angle?

LawrenceA, there is no comparison between the release print and the director's cut

 

They are two very different films.

 

In the release print, a young actress who has a very small part in the original film (Neve Campbell), is promoted to a romance with the lead character, who is played by Ryan Phillippe.

 

I would not say that the original film is, as it has been claimed, TOO GAY, but the original film is devoted to capturing a state of mind that was consumed by EXCESS and masqueraded as FREEDOM.

 

Most notable, Phillippe's free-wheeling sexuality is given more play in the original version.

 

It's a shame, too, because the film could have made him a star.

 

The Weinstein Brothers are not to be forgiven for their butchery of this film. 

 

Ryan attempts to seduce his good friend, Breckin Meyer -
