Queer cinema has produced some of the best films of the past few years, from the heart-aching Call Me By Your Name and Moonlight to elegant tales of forbidden love like Carol and Disobedience.
But then again, queer cinema is responsible for many of film history’s most compelling works, be they romance, drama or comedy. In recognition of this, Time Out London recently reached out to actors, directors, writers and activists—including Xavier Dolan, Bruce LaBruce, Roland Emmerich and Christine Vachon—for their thoughts on their favorite LGBT movies of all time.
Among the top ten were Pedro Almodóvar’s All About My Mother, Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain and Sally Potter’s Orlando (starring a young Tilda Swinton and Billy Zane). The top 50 rounds out with classics like The Wizard of Oz and Pink Flamingos, as well as the lesser-known 1961 film The Children’s Hour starring Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacClaine.Liven up your Netflix queue with the full list here.
