11. Gods And Monsters [DVD] Popular
Oscar nominated Sir Ian McKellen and Lynn Redgrave star in an Oscar-winning tribute to the controversial life of an eccentric genius. He was the father of Frankenstein and his eerie images shocked the world. So did his private life. Director James Whale (Ian McKellen - Lord of The Rings, X-Men) flew in the face of Hollywood convention and his glittering career became tarnished by scandal and sexual excess. Alone with only his loyal housekeeper (Lynn Redgrave - Shine) in his declining years, and suffering from bad health, his unusual friendship with hunky gardener Clayton Boone (Brendan Fraser - The Mummy) started Tinseltown tongues wagging again. A riviting and poignant salute to a tragic pioneer of motion pictures, Sir Ian McKellen gives the performance of a lifetime in this critically acclaimed masterpiece.

Starring: Ian McKellen, Brendan Fraser, Lynn Redgrave, Rosalind Ayres

12. Going Down In La La Land [DVD] Popular
Based on the novel by Andy Zeffer, cult gay director Casper Andreas follows up The Big Gay Musical with Going Down in LA-LA Land, a riveting and uncensored look at the glittering stars and studios of Hollywood, and its lesser-exposed neighbour - the seedy and cut-throat porn industry.

Wide-eyed, hunky upstart Adam arrives in Los Angeles from New York, brimming with hope for a career in the movie business. He shacks up with best friend Candy, who is also desperate to get a foot in the Hollywood door. Together they hit the red carpets and cocktail parties to network and score roles. Adam's drop dead gorgeous body and chiselled looks prove a rich picking to the needy and seedy agents, directors and studio executives of Hollywood Boulevard, and he begins almost instantly to climb the ladder of fame - or so it seems.

Featuring a slew of West Hollywood cameos from Perez Hilton, Bruce Vilanch, Alec Mapa (Desperate Housewives) and Judy Tenuta (Butch Camp), Going Down In LA LA Land is a Los Angelean lesson in the ups and downs of fast fame and bosom buddies.

Starring: Matthew Ludwinski, Michael Medico, Allison Lane

15. Interior. Leather Bar [DVD] Popular
In order to avoid an X rating, 40 minutes of gay S&M footage was rumoured to be cut and destroyed from the 1980 film, CRUISING starring Al Pacino. Inspired by the mythology of this controversial film, filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews collaborate to imagine their own lost footage. Amid the backdrop of a frenzied film set, actor Val Lauren reluctantly agrees to take the lead in the film. Val is repeatedly forced to negotiate his boundaries during scenes on and “off camera,” as unsimulated gay sex happens around him. The film itself is constructed as a play with boundaries remaining queer in subject and form. As much a film about filmmaking as it is about an exploration of sexual and creative freedom, INTERIOR. LEATHER BAR defies easy categorization.

Starring: James Franco, Val Lauren, Christian Patrick, Travis Mathews

18. Longtime Companion [DVD] Popular
The late director Norman Rene and writer Craig Lucas made a pretty fine creative team on the stage and in the movies, and this 1990 drama about the evolving impact of AIDS on gay New Yorkers is their best cinematic achievement. The ensemble story follows the lives of nine or so characters as word of the so-called "gay cancer" eventually becomes a real force, killing several of them as the years go by. The film works well on a number of levels, not least of which is the enviable closeness of the characters, the script's wit, the bittersweet experience of loss, and a celebratory attitude at the end mixing wisdom with defiance. - Tom Keogh (amazon review)

Starring:Stephen Caffrey, Patrick Cassidy, Brian Cousins, Bruce Davison, John Dossett
