Arrow Gay Cinema on Blu-ray

I don't usually watch a lot of gay cinema because often the characters are so cliche and the storylines are so predictable, but recently I've discovered a few gems and have been really impressed! It seems there actually are extremely talented film makers taking on homophobia/gay issues and doing it in unexpected/creative ways.

Anyway, I think it would be nice to create a masterlist of all the films (released on blu ray) that have a fairly obvious gay theme or maybe includes a significant gay character. Here are the ones I could think of, plus the titles you guys suggested! Thanks so much!

Obviously Gay Blu Rays:

Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)
Albert Nobbs (2011)

Gay cinema movies are often cliche, but the mainstream ones do a great job. A Single Man is a great movie.

It's a shame. I have A Single Man on DVD, but havent bothered to watch it yet. I'll probably give it a spin since it came up.

I'd say X-Men United. One of my favorites.

Wong Kar Wai's Happy Together. Amazing film.

Beginners is also hitting streets in November, in which Christopher Plummer, after being diagnosed with cancer, finally admits to his son that he's gay. Personally I think it's the best film this year.

already some really cool titles! I'm going to have to check these out.

Also, did anybody see C.R.A.Z.Y.? I watched the DVD long ago and loved it. Eventually I'll have to get the Canadian BD, I guess, but I don't like that it's 1080i

Thirded. Wonderful film. Firth should have won for that role (as good as he was in The King's Speech; I sort of view that one partly as a "sorry for passing you up last year" award).

I'm hopping they release a few of mine down the road. I really want To Wong Foo, Stonewall, The Birdcage and But I'm a Cheerleader. I wouldn't mind seeing the Eating Out films put on BD as well. Haven't seen the third or fourth ones yet though.

They are releasing a 2-pack - I believe 1 disc - of Another Gay Movie and Another Gay Sequel in case anyone is interested in it. I had the DVDs, but recently traded them in so I can upgrade when the BD is released in a couple of months.

I've never seen 'A Single Man'. Have to check it out.

I wish these were on Blu:

Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss (1998)
Broken Hearts Club (2001)
The Crying Game (1992)
Trick (1998)

BTW, I hate Brokeback Mountain.

I think he added it on there because it has a character who comes out or is gay. I don't think it has to be a gay themed movie, according to his original post.
