  1. A comedy/spoof of the classic Hollywood studio era- featuring Channing Tatun as a Gene Kelly like sailor in a big gay production number.
  2. "The Eagle" (2011) Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell have a very strong master/slave bromance
  3. I really need to check out " The Hanging Tree" but from the trailer the Rune kid is clearly gay ( or at least gay coded) "Under the Cherry Moon" is pure camp - it's hard to classify it as "straight" movie
  4. "Brokeback Mountain" goes beyond bromance because the two dudes actually have sex- or did you forget the tent scene. There are a lot of bromantic comedies that have a clear gay subtext just look at "21 Jumpstreet" or "Pineapple Express"
  5. "Midnight Cowboy" is a safer choice because the two men never have sex- it's a bromance.

    "The 4th Man Out"

    It looks interesting - and at least it's expanding they gay experience outside of the usual big city- gay ghetto setting.
  7. If a filmmaker sets out to make a film with a political agenda it ends up sounding like a speech. The reason "Brokeback " resonates with such a large audience is that they understood the human angle of the story.

    "The 4th Man Out"

    https://youtu.be/460ry_YkQ-4 A gay bro comedy
  9. I totally agree- it proves that cinema still has the power to change hearts and minds by making an emotional connection with the audience.
  10. " Linda could never figure out why Tab spent so much time hanging out with the sailors..."
  11. In the short story the women are barely mentioned- and the two lovers are much more isolated - and of course they look like average men not like movie stars- of course casting great looking male leads always helps the box office.
  12. In some ways "Brokeback Mountain " is a great film of persuasion like it's predecessor "Victim"- and this gay romantic drama western probably had something to do with changing many peoples attitude about gay marriage. It also reaches such a wide audience because the screenwriters wisely augmented the role of the women in the story. I think that's one of the reasons the film found an audience beyond the gay cinema ghetto.
  13. "Gilda" can also be a warning to young straight men who might have developed "gay" war time relationships that now it was time to go home and make babies with Rita Hayworth.
  14. The relationship of the two men in "Gilda" does have a homoerotic subtext.
  15. In the excellent dvd ( which is a must buy if you are a fan of the film or lgbt cinema in general) Peter White talks about how people still ask him about Alan's true nature.
  16. Alan remains the most intriguing character in the play- yes he is a plot device to introduce the straight audience into the gay world- that's why he is shocked when the seemingly masculine school teacher turns out to be a homosexual too. Alan sexuality is never revealed and you wonder what happens to him when he leaves the apartment- has he been changed by this encounter with the gay men?
  17. He was exploring every type of gay experience from the most flamboyant to the possibly closeted- that it why the play still seems timeless
  18. I like the original films best but some of your choices are interesting
  19. "Beautiful Thing" (1996), funny, romantic, wonderful film
  20. I think I saw this one- it had a different poster for it's US release

    "Carol" (2015)

    You should read 'George Cukor : A Double Life"
  22. Creepy indie horror about supernatural stalker terrorizing a teenage girl.
