|'Brokeback Mountain' tops British magazine's '50 Best Gay Movies'|

British movie magazine Total Film released its list of the "50 Best Gay Movies" today, calling them the "most glorious, groundbreaking gay and lesbian movies of all time."
Here's the top 20 (full list at the bottom):
1. Brokeback Mountain
These kinds of lists are always subjective and will always omit personal favorites. I'm not angry at their choices — for the most part — but I wanted to share some additional films (and lists) that you should keep in mind the next time you're Netflixing or whatever people do now that rental stores have become so hard to find.
First, calling this list the "most glorious, groundbreaking gay and lesbian movies of all time" begs a separation — not all glorious gay films are ground breaking. Not all groundbreaking films are glorious. And um, not all of these movies are particularly gay.
I must applaud Total Film for putting "Heavenly Creatures" so high on the list. When I found out it was on Netflix a few months ago, Ms. Dyana Bagby and I had a movie night to die for!
Add these to the list and I'll go away:
"Before Night Falls"
"I Love You Phillip Morris"
"Paris is Burning"
Other's that should be added with little explanation, in my book anyway:
Here's some further reading:
