Hello guys! I am film fan. And I was always interested in different genres of movies from my childhood. Of course, my film tastes differ over time, but still I adore films. I want to get to know what films do you prefer?! Recently, I watch only LGBT movies. I prefer European cinema, because it's rather close to me, and my preferences. What do you think about LGBT movies? Do you like them, or do you prefer straight characters in movies? Such modern films are so interesting and thrilling, that sometimes I just want them never ended. If you like such films, what are your favourite ones?

I like the Brokeback Mountain. Modern public have become increasingly more loyal to gay relationships on the big screen, with much of the credit going to the decades-spanning Brokeback Mountain. Painted with humanity and genuine emotion by master filmmaker Ang Lee, the movie followed two ranch hands, Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal), as they find love and fairly graphic passion on a bleak mountainside in 1963. Returning to the “normal" world, over the years they find their hearts crushed by the strictures of society.

I agree that Brokeback Mountain is one of the best LGBT movies ever and it is definitely worth attention. Ledger and Gyllenhaal, both nominated for Oscars, are superb crafting scintillating portrayals of tortured gay men at a time that the general public demeaned and isolated them. One the most famous and influential gay dramas ever made, the Brokeback Mountain speaks achingly to the power of love, regardless of gender, and to the unhealthy mandates of a society that builds itself on prejudice and hate. And the ending puts it in the ranks of classic tear-jerkers likeSplendor in the Grass.

And one of my favourite LGBT films is "The adventures of Priscilla, the queen of the desert" Twenty-one years ago, Australia brought the world this tale of the outlandish and endearing adventures of two drag queens and a transsexual, a trio who blaze a trail across the Outback to a drag performance at the continent’s center. Mitzi Del Bra (Hugo Weaving), Felicia Jollygoodfellow (Guy Pearce) and Bernadette Bassenger (Terence Stamp) embarked on a clandestine journey fueled by an infectious disco soundtrack (Gloria Gaynor! ABBA!) that would be at home in any good club.

I also have seen "The adventures of Priscilla" and I consider that it is a good movie and you won't regret if you watch it. More than portraying drag queens with a sensational truth, director Stephen Elliot’s joyful film glimmered with vibrant visuals and Oscar-winning costume design that remain influential today. Yet amid the lip-syncing, frock-wearing and smack-talking irreverence is a simple story of three men. One wants to be there for his son (Weaving). One wants to escape the misery surrounding the departure of an accepting husband. One just wants to explore life outside the cesspool of the big city without realizing that finding safety so far from home isn't as easy as it seems. A holiday parable, if you will.

One of the best LGBT movies I have ever seen is "Boys don't cry". A provocative milestone in LGBTQA cinema, co-writer/director Kimberly Peirce’s knockout feature debut relays the true-life story of Brandon Teena (Oscar winner Hilary Swank). Born Teena Brandon, as a young trans man Brandon assumed his male identity and went out looking for love, peace and harmony in the politically repressed community of Falls City, Nebraska. Living in the closet, Brandon found little peace and harmony, but he did find love in the form of a woman, Lana Tisdel (Oscar-nominated Chloë Sevigny). His love and his time here would be short-lived.

There are many good movies devoted to the problems of the LGBT community and to the possible future of gay people. Yes 'Boys don't cry 'is a great movie. It is very deep and serious, I think that everybody should watch it whether he is gay or straight. Upon release, Boys Don’t Cry opened up widespread dialogue about gender identity, violence toward the LGBTQA community, female sexuality and a lot more that, frankly, too many take for granted as par for the discourse in today’s discussion about queer identity, theory and rights. Let your conversations begin.

"Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is also a good movie which deserves watching. The film version of John Cameron Mitchell's stage musical, about an East German singer who attempts to come to terms with the botched sex-change operation that left her with an "angry inch," has rightly developed a cult following. Taking musical conventions and turning them on their bejeweled ear, the movie digs its painted nails into an infrequently celebrated subculture and winds up more than enlightening. I think that without this film a list of the best LGBT movies will not be complete

'Maurice' is my favorite movie devoted to the LGBT theme. In part because there are very handsome actors))))))) In 1909, Maurice (James Wilby) meets fellow Cambridge student Clive Durham (Hugh Grant). At first each man is unsure if the other is, well, you know . . . and it’s not like they can ask around to find out. As the two negotiate their feelings, the pressures of society mount until one of them — spoiler ahead — capitulates to the bourgeois society and enters into — oh, dear — a lovelorn marriage. The remaining bachelor moves on, hoping to find the love that does not bare its name.

And I like "Maurice" not only for Hugh Grant (but what is the point in denying how gorgeous he is?!), but also because of the historical background of the film. The plot describes not current time, it explains that love was impossible to hide and to stop even many years ago. From the sets to the scenery to the (Oscar-nominated) costumes, the film is loaded with such style, one may wish it were once again those grand ol’ repressive times. Viewers will relish, though, the progressive-thinking capper. Sit down, swap out Downton Abbey, and pass the cognac.

We all here discuss the ability of becoming parents and some of us are already parents. But how hard it may be a same-gender couple to bring up children. It is described in the film called "The kids are all right". In the end, all any of us can hope for is a little piece of this world where we can build a family and live the life we've always wanted. Co-writer/director Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are All Right vividly paints the portrait of a suburban family whose peaceful veneer is cracked by curiosity and doubt. Starring Oscar nominees Annette Bening and Julianne Moore as a lesbian couple whose two children (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson) seek out and insert their biological father (Oscar-nominated Mark Ruffalo) into their dynamic, the film tackles common issues facing many modern families.
