    The Legend of Lylah Clare

    ★★★½

    Undeniably dumb, tawdry, and grotesquely overwritten, but weirdly insightful and affecting in its own tactless way. Equally engaging in its flashes of meaningfulness as it is when it's glorious camp trash, until the last 15 minutes put late-'60s Hollywood camp through a funhouse mirror and wind up with something surprisingly effective and nightmarish. The climax is genuinely hair-raising stuff, and the scenes that follow are haunting in the way they contrast the trauma of the previous events and the pain…

  • Pride

    Pride

    ★★★½

    Definitely safe and sanitized enough to not offend your parents but it's sweet and cute and unlike most gay movies that are safe and sanitized enough to not offend your parents it bothers to firmly ground queerness as the political identity it is rather than being totally Assimilationist Vibes Only. It's a nice little cheese sandwich of a movie!

    (Also points for shitting on Margaret Thatcher, all my homies hate Margaret Thatcher)

    (Also also shout out to that incredibly hunky rubber-clad bear bartender who's on-screen for like 3 seconds)
