Slash Movies List

Been browsing around amazon, found a couple of gay/slash themed movies as well as ones I've seen already. Just a list for those interested:

**Edge of Seventeen American coming of age.

Cowboys and Angels; this got poor reviews on amazon, but from the trailer I saw it looked quite fun (haven't seen the film yet though.) Irish comedy with a gay character.

Latter Days romance between a Mormon missionary and a party boy, I kid you not, LOL! slash.

**Beautiful Thing English coming of age.

**Home at the End of the World love triangle with two gay men and one woman.

**Urbania strange but intriguing film.

My Beautiful Launderette

**Maurice Historical.

**Stage Beauty. Historical.

Brokeback Mountain I'm adding it because it is a gay themed film, but I didn't like it personally.

**Mysterious Skin Coming of age, deals with child abuse.

**Transamerica Transexual discovers she has a son from an encounter when she had been a man.

**Breakfast on Pluto quirky Irish coming of age tale.

Kinky Boots Transvestite saves a British shoe factory from ruin, comedy.

Sugar Coming of age.

**Lamb, not strictly a slashy film, but it has its moments and a warning for the ending, hankies needed but I won't spoil it.

**Bad Education An examination on the effect of Franco-era religious schooling and sexual abuse on the lives of two longtime friends.

**Hate Crime Trouble starts for a young gay couple when a new neighbour moves in next door, the son of a fundamentalist preacher. Trouble that ends in murder.

The Night Listener Main character is gay. In the midst of his crumbling relationship, a radio show host begins speaking to his biggest fan, a young boy, via the telephone. But when questions about the boy's identity come up, the host's life is thrown into chaos.

**Little Miss Sunshine A family determined to get their young daughter into the finals of a beauty pageant take a cross-country trip in their VW bus. One of the main characters is gay.

Mambo Italiano The son of Italian immigrants to Canada struggles to find the best way to reveal to his parents that he's gay.

Running with Scissors Comedy/dysfunctional family

Total Eclipse Historical with David Thewlis and Leonardo DiCaprio

Prick Up Your Ears with Gary Oldman

** Means these were my personal favourites, some of the others I haven't seen, so I can't judge really :) They're listed if anyone feels the need to wonder what might be available in moviedom. If anyone knows of any others they'd care to rec, feel free to add them in the comments.

take care,

I can't stand Maurice myself but that's because the novel is one of my favourite books ever and I wrote essays/presentations on it at uni.

thanks for the list :)

Wasn't Dark Harbor slashy? I haven't seen it but I want to because I heard it was good and Alan Rickman was in it.

Also, would Naked be one too? I think it has 2 boys together. I don't know. I'll find some links later on. All I know is that David Thewlis is in it and I think Leonardo Decaprio is in it.

Here's a few more titles for you to check out, slightly more well known. The Birdcage - excellently acted, with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. Better Than Chocolate - lesbian slash, a bit cliche but with a lovely subplot about a transexual. Can't think of any more at the moment, but they'll come to me.

Oooh or La Cage aux Folles, which is the original of Bird Cage. It's in French but ZOMG it's so funny, even if you don't speak French. XD

I don't have any more to add, myself, but I just have to say that I LOVED Home At the End of the World.

LOL, how could I have forgotten that one? I loved that one and even managed to drag my husband along to see it :)

take care,

Yes, we care crazy because my husband has to take a laptop from work to work on in the different offices that he goes to and then I have to have our laptop and look crazy going through an airport with 2 of them.

I'm curious about what you didn't like about Brokeback Mountain. I had read the short story before seeing the movie and was amazed that an 18 page Word document translated into an over two hour movie without really adding anything extra. And talk about angst...I knew going in it wasn't going to end well for Ennis and Jack, but I loved it anyway. *shrugs*

I can't quite put my finger on it, I was really looking forward to the film, I hadn't read the story so I had nothing to compare it to, but for me there was just something lacking. I don't know whether I just couldn't relate to the characters or what, but the romance between them just seemed to appear out of nowhere especially in that first love scene, they just sort of grabbed at each other and it just didn't ring true to me. Maybe I'm way off, but that's just how I felt when I watched it. :)

I don't think you're way off just because things didn't ring true for you. ;) I just saw Ennis as so very, very lonely. He obviously didn't have much love in his life growing up, or at least he didn't have as much as he needed. And I think being so isolated with one person who was completely focused on him - making him talk, making him share things about his life that it seemed no one else ever bothered to do - really made Ennis begin to fall for Jack. He and Alma had Jr. right away and they both had responsibilities and they didn't have that time alone like Ennis had with Jack.

Jack is harder for me to understand. If he had sex previously, it was most likely just hard and fast with no real emotions involved. But with Ennis there was a relationship along with the sex even during the first love scene. And Jack had been looking for (male) sex partners, but didn't have much success (which is hard for me to believe) so I can see him taking advantage of them both being drunk to make a pass at Ennis. Jack was very lonely as well. He couldn't do anything right for his father and on top of everything else was attracted to men. His biggest dream was to find someone (male) and make a life with them.

But the pressures of society made that impossible for them and that's what I think the whole story was about. *shrugs*

If you liked the characters at all, you might want to read an AU fic by madlori called 'Human Interest'. It deviates from the movie where Jack drove 12 hours to Ennis' place after Ennis got his divorce. But in HI Ennis and Jack make another choice than in the movie. The author is a BNF in HP fandom (she writes Harry/Hermione) which, of course, meant I had never heard of her. *g* BBM is her first slash fandom, but her fic is beyond amazing.

" He argues: "But the pain Jack and Ennis cause their families is not whitewashed. (The women are played with tremendous sympathy, not as shrill harridans.

I'm sorry to pop up, out of nowhere, like this. ((You probably know me better as just splitpea)) but have you seen the movie Wilde starring Stephen Fry? It's not a very good biography, but it's still a wonderful story and captivating film!
Jul. 31st, 2007 09:00 am (UTC)
Thanks, I've added that one. Did you know Stephen Fry does the audio for the English Harry Potter books? He also did some of the narration on the earlier computer games, LOL!

He's also written some slashy books as well.

take care,

Oi, which books? Awesome. Stephen Fry is the best ever. Also, have you seen History Boys? It's great.
Sep. 28th, 2007 07:58 am (UTC)
LOL, that should be easy, John got me Stephen Fry's back fiction catalogue for Christmas last year ;)

Moab is my Washpot autobiography.

The Hippopotamus fiction.

Making History fiction.

The Stars' Tennis Balls fiction.

The Liar fiction.

The book Revenge is the same book as The Stars' Tennis Balls with a different cover (I think for the American market, but I wouldn't be sure.)

All of the above books have some slashy elements, not surprising since the author himiself is gay :)

He naratted all of the Harry Potter books on CD for the UK publishers. I've only got Half Blood Prince, but he's really good, different voices for every character and everything :)

Total Eclipse is the David Thewlis slashy film with Leo. Gary Oldman was also in a slashy film called Prick Up Your Ears. The end of Dark Harbor was a slashtatic(sp?), yum the sex god Alan Rickman. Jason Isaacs was in Dangerous Lady and it was slashy, too. Ian Hart was in The Hours and Times a film about the Beatles. It had a scene in a bathtub. All of the best hp men and some slashy goodness. Yummy!!
