Pariah (Short)

Pariah by Dee Rees

Impeccable...a perfect film.

a film so fine and so rare that there are few comparisons

Undertow

Undertow is magically brilliant.

From Peru comes a story so human and from the heart that I want to make it required viewing in every film class.

Bloomington

Worse than Loving Annabelle and that is hard to achieve.

The only redemption might be the soft core porn ... if you are young.

The Big Gay Musical

Clever, eye catching, funny with very talented performers.

It is a musical, so we're already half way there. The actors/dancers/singers topped the book as it is in most musicals.

Four Seasons Lodge

A testament to love.

Albert Maysles who filmed Grey Gardens (and many others) with his brother David, guided the cinematography of Four Seasons Lodge with beautiful results.

Impromtu

Impromptu has been one of the films that I pushed to the back of the list until I recently pulled it off the library shelves. It has been recommended by respected critics and in general been listed as a classic. Why?

Nurse Jackie S2

Nurse Jackie

Edie Falco is, simply put, one of the best actors of our times. Nurse Jackie continues to draw you in, make you feel and make you laugh.

The writing on Nurse Jackie is damn good too. Jackie's admonishment of the drinking mother; Zoey's interaction with God or the nephew of God; Dr. Ohara's fabulous forays into fashion and foible.

Elena Undone

When Night Is Falling

Elena Undone begs comparison with Patricia Rozema's When Night Is Falling which is much better and features a circus.

The Pastors' wives, Pascale Bussieres in When Night Is Falling and Necar Zadegan in Elena Undone, are both exceedingly beautiful and married.

Puccini for Beginners (2006)

I should have included Puccini for Beginners in my Best of Decade list earlier this year. It is one of the best representatives of English language lesbian films of the decade. Drifting Flowers would be my choice for Foreign Language lesbian film for the decade.

Women in Trouble (2009)

A very amusing movie with smart writing, good acting and a point of view. 4 stars
