Five Underappreciated LGBT Films to Watch This Summer

It’s common to scroll through the LGBT section of popular streaming sites and feel defeated about what you see. If it’s not films you’ve already seen, it’s often the same five generic-looking gay and lesbian films with sad, skinny white people standing in front of a sunset on their posters. Maybe you can just watch Carol for the twentieth time on Netflix, but wouldn’t it also be great to change it up a bit? To see a gay protagonist in a horror film or an animated movie with a queer child character at its center? For that post Pride Month itch for on-screen representation, here is a list of five of some lesser known LGBT films in a variety of genres – all conveniently under 95 minutes!

Best Of 2019 So Far – Fedor Tot

If you know where to look, cinema is doing pretty damn great this year. Of the five here, I would consider one to have already entered my personal pantheon of all-time greats, and the other four aren’t a million miles behind. Cinema eh? 5. Until Porn Do Us Part (dir. Jorge Pelicano) I was lucky…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Hannah Holway

While films will always have my heart, this year we have been blessed with small screen stories which are original, affecting and often topical. With so many incredible shows to choose from this year, selecting only five was a tough task, but here are my personal favourites so far: Big Little Lies (Season 2, NowTv)…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Emily Gett

As we are halfway through 2019 already, the team at Flip Screen asked us to pick our top five releases of this year. For me it wasn’t too much of a hard choice as there has been some stand-outs this year already! Notable mentions that have just missed the mark include the ridiculously good John…

We’ve somehow made it halfway through 2019, a year with too many new releases to count! With the growing streaming market, films are becoming more accessible to audiences at faster paces. The success of Netflix originals like Someone Great and Always Be My Maybe show that the platform is for more than just television series.…

Best of 2019 So Far – Paige Kiser

As often as I watch (and re-watch) TV, I still never feel like I can catch up with every new show that people are talking about, or even stay completely up to date on new seasons of already existing, beloved shows. But that doesn’t stop me from trying. 2019 has already given us so many…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Thomas Sheriff

I never see as many films as I’d like; especially not in the cinema. I doubt that will ever not be true. So, when (if) I eventually catch up on all 2019’s cinema I might look back on this brief top 5 and gasp at the glaring omissions made. Oh well, it can’t be helped.…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Shaun Alexander

2019 has been an eventful year for me. I finished university with a first-class film degree and attended film festivals that I have dreamed of visiting. I broke my back in January but didn’t let it get the best of me. Films, as always, have been a massive comfort for me, but this year more…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Emily Maskell

Narrowing films down to lists such as this is an almost impossible task for me. Yet, I have somehow managed to brutally condense my viewings of 2019 so far to a select five. Now I present to you: my personal favourite films as of halfway through twenty-nineteen. 5. Under The Silver Lake. (dir. David Robert…

Five Great Closing Movie Tracks

Recently I wrote about how ‘Willow’, the closing track from High Life, fuses elegantly with the themes of the film. A well-chosen final piece of music can turn a good film into a great one and a great one into a stone-cold classic. When the marriage of sight and sound is a perfect melding of…
