Brokeback got you down?
Brokeback got you down?
Brokeback Mountain is all the rage. I couldn't be less interested! Honestly, what straight man really wants to sit through that? There are, however, plenty of movies with strong gay themes that a straight guy can enjoy. And not all of them are about lipstick lesbians! Ladies, if you insist your man watch a "gay" movie with you, choose one of these!
Here's some I have watched more than once:
Kissing Jessica Stein - Funny, thoughtful, and worth a viewing!
Go - If you have not seen this, you have not lived. Go get Go, now! Go!
Three to Tango - funny, if you can handle Matthew Perry, with perhaps my favorite Neve Campbell performance. "You've made your gay bed, and now you've got to slumber gaily in it!"
Wild Things - Speaking of Neve Campbell, this one has some minor homosexual story arcs and is a decent story. The sequels, not so much...
Chasing Amy - Kevin Smith's best. Brilliant beyond words. "Black rage!"
Mulholland Dr. - Who knows what it is about, but g'damn those fine ladies look good doin' the do!
The Talented Mr. Ripley - This one is on the edge of tolerable as far as content goes, but it is a remarkable story with many fine performances.
Y Tu Mama Tambien - Also on the edge of tolerability, but a good, if bizarre film.
Interview With The Vampire - Not as gay as it should have been, given the source material, but still good and gay!
Eddie Izzard: Dress to Kill - technically neither gay, nor a film, but this is one funny damn transvestite. This particular concert is his best single performance. Watch it, love it, wear a dress to celebrate! (Sucker!)

Brokeback isn't gonna be shown in Malaysia And I couldn't be bothered to watch it either. Doesn't sound like what I'm interested in anyway. Might try the others that you suggested.|

Kissing Jessica makes me miss NYC so much. |
It's the truest movie I've seen on how to f-ing date in the city.
Pitch perfect, and so honest.
Get Reel, an English film about 5 years old, is another great one.
LET'S GO METS!!!
