Loose Cannons

[video:youtube]http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/mine_vaganti/?nopopup=true[/video]

Italian with a joy of life and at the same time embracing in your own way your own reality. Lots of gay twists and humor and Fellini esque pathos.

My bf and I loved it.

I don't really enjoy the raunchier gay movies, but I find some of them incredibly moving.

There was a British film called Get Real from 1998 that I appreciated a lot, thought was very honest.

A German (?) movie called Harvest was tasteful and really honest.

Nate & Margaret (2012) with Tyler Ross was very good, if low-budget, and I liked a lot of what it had to say in the end about being gay with dignity. The restaurant scene was amazing.

Then there's Prayers for Bobby. Obviously as a celibate religious dude (and the woman responsible for me being Christian was a celibate lesbian) I come to a different conclusion, but this is such a heart-felt presentation of the issue that it still brings me to tears every time I watch it.

Bobby's mother who's approval he was desperate for as we all are, rejected him as did his church based on conservative doctrine. She tried to have him cured and he tried to toe the line. Ultimately he had to live his orientation but was unable to reconcile his inner conflict and took his own life.

In this tragic story, through love and understanding Bobby's mother's epiphany comes when she sobs

"I now know why God didn't heal Bobby. He did't heal him... because there was nothing wrong with him"

If its ok to ask, what different conclusion did you come to?

btw i makes me cry too, but i cry every year when Clarence gets his wings, even though i see it coming!

I will totally answer that, but I think I ought to move it to its own post, since it's a question of how I dealt with abuse, bisexuality, and Christianity? Fair 'nough?

[Or I could totally chicken out and put the short version of it in a PM like I just did...]

In touch with this theme, one great indie film about a gay kid who becomes a martial artist is
Sensei. It's also nice 'cause it paints a slightly exaggerated but moving portrayal of the false idea that Christianity has room for hatred and violence against homosexuals.
Good acting. Sweet but not over-the-top martial arts.

Would love to read that too, if I may be so bold.

Too personal for public chat room. I sent a PM to you both. It um... took me a while to type.

Anyway, Those are the gay movies I enjoy 'cause of their emotional honesty and lack of raunch.

Anyone else seen them?

The martial arts movie is just called "Sensei" Beautifully understated name.
