Stream These: 10 Essential Lgbt Art Films, From Jean Genet to Xavier Dolan

12 June 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With San Francisco's Frameline Film Festival and La's Outfest mere weeks away, it's that time of the year when the festival circuit gets a little queerer. And so, for those cinephiles looking to celebrate Lgbt Pride Month at home, here are ten queer cinema essentials you can stream now."Un Chant d'Amour" (Fandor)It seems fitting to begin with Jean Genet's shattering 1950 short about gay male desire slithering behind prison walls.

Gay people and the city have been a good match since Sodom and Gomorrah. From the molly houses of 18th-century London to 1970s San Francisco via prewar Berlin, the urban environment has always been the natural habitat of queer culture – a place where Lgbt people can set their own rules, form their own families, be anonymous when they want to and find company when they fancy it. The countryside, on the other hand, is the place they escape from – a realm of social conformity with limited opportunities for culture, sex or socialising, and perhaps even a site of danger.

That's the stereotype, anyway, both in reality and on screen. Innumerable movies with claims to gay-classic status are inseparable from their urban settings: London has Victim, »
