Open thread – name your top LGBT flicks

[UPDATE: This is a popular open thread from last night; I’m moving it back up to the top so folks don’t feel it’s too late to hop in. Newer posts are below this one.]

LOGO has its viewers’ picks for the top 50 LGBT films. Take a look and see if some of your faves are on the list.

Here are the films at the top of LOGO’s list:

1. Brokeback Mountain
2. Latter Days
3. Beautiful Thing
4. Trick
5. Bound
6. Angels in America
7. The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
8. Desert Hearts
9. Tipping the Velvet
10. Big Eden

What are your your top three (whether or not they are on the list of 50).?

Oh, I’ll just pick a few, maybe not the best, but they’re memorable.

The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love. Such a sweet film. And Laurel Holloman was/is a cutie.

The Times of Harvey Milk. It’s still moving. This didn’t make the top 50!

But I’m a Cheerleader. Hilarious take on an “ex-gay” camp. If only it had done a take-off on Richard Cohen’s techniques.

Mysterious Skin. One of the best films that I saw last year was this disturbing and haunting film by Gregg Araki (not on LOGO’s list either).

Worst: Easily Claire of the Moon. Jeezus, that is bad lesbian cinema (outside of some short films I’ve seen at festivals).

And a reminder for Tar Heel (and environs) Blenders: the NC Gay & Lesbian film fest tix go on sale July 17.
