    Well, it's just like soft porn... occasionally hard - it's unusual to see such explicit gay sex scenes in cinema, especially when the film is not meant to be nor classified as a gay pornographic film.

    It's a very typical gay film - so concerned with sex and sexual deviance. The man falls in-love with someone he knows to be a murderer... someone he sees murdering another... and then tries to discuss how sad he is about knowing somebody who's died with the murderer just after having sex with him. It just doesn't make much sense!

    I love films like 'Maurice' because they're actual. They show it as it really is, with a focus on the confusion, the struggle, and the love between men rather than sex, cruising and secrets.

    I liked parts of it but not the film generally; it didn't really disappoint though because it's to be expected of the majority of gay cinema!

    I get what you mean. Nothing compares to Maurice of course.

    Stranger by the lake isn't really artistic or philosophical, it's quite simple. Sometimes I like simplicity. I wouldn't say it had a lasting impression; it was alright.

    OMG! Tell me what you think of 'Weekend'. I think you'll like that one.

    It's about a woman who lives as a man (pre-op) and identifies as a man. It's so powerful and such a traumatising watch but amazing.

    It's a good film, it shows some of the struggles that trans men go through.

    yep, it's one of those films that I like even though I end up a bit sad after I watch it :sadnod: also maybe I'm just cynical but I feel like the happy ending is unrealistic

    Yeah some films are like that. I feel like that too, my life has been far from happy these past couple of years and it's hard to believe that happy endings exist let alone one happening to me. I feel for you :hugs:
