It's the most intense gay film ever to come out of Taiwan, and one of the most beautiful. In Eternal Summer, young director Leste Chen captures the loneliness and confusion of gay youth with such intoxicating intimacy, you can almost smell the bodies on screen.
The Queen is a magnificent film, breathtakingly lush in its recreation of the palace grounds, top-notch in its acting, and powerful in its emotional play. Helen Mirren plays Elizabeth II as the mother of her country, frozen in denial as it turns against her with a character she does not recognise - in effect, when the UK comes out.
Daniel Craig isn't just the new James Bond. The 38-year-old Englishman comes across in Casino Royale as a sex object, strangely strong and vulnerable, a mix of blond twink and hunky daddy - perhaps just be fabulous enough to qualify as a Bond Girl.
Besides poking fun at American Idol and US political leadership, American Dreamz is probably the first mainstream American film with gay Muslim characters - Omer, a Broadway-loving Iraqi terrorist, and Iqbal, a spoilt teenage Arab-American brat.
You think John Tucker Must Die is a mindless piece of heterosexual American high-school garbage? Guess again - there's a hidden subversive subtext of lesbian terrorism running through this movie - or at least, this reviewer thinks so.
Sure, Brokeback was beautiful. But didn't most of us figure out we were gay before we hit drinking age? 50 Ways of Saying Fabulous is one of precious few movies about being a gay preteen, with its story of a 12-year-old overweight femme schoolboy, growing up in the New Zealand wilderness.
It's an award-winning play by a Singaporean gay man, studied in classrooms in America. It was banned in Singapore in 1995, following a success in the New York Shakespeare Festival, directed by Ong Keng Sen. Now it's been eleven years late in coming, but hallelujah - A Language of Their Own is finally here, and it's fabulous.
