The 10 Best Lesbian and Queer Movies of All Time

WLW deserve to see their lives represented on screen.

Still from "Bound"

Unless you're white, cis-gendered, and heterosexual, it can be hard to find films that reflect your lived experience.

If you're anything like me, you suffer through even the worst movies just because some Reddit user said there was one lesbian kiss somewhere in the second hour of the film. Womxn-loving-womxn relationships have long been fetishized, ignored, or poorly represented in movies, but thankfully there are a few hidden gems out there that get it right.

James Bond and Pussy Galore, "Goldfinger" (1965)

When I decided to re-watch all of the James Bond movies in chronological order, I wasn't exactly expecting a politically correct, feminist franchise that would pass the Bechdel test with flying colors.

My memory of the early movies consisted of a lot of smarmy one-liners, plenty of women in those kind of pointy bikini tops, bad guys with Russian or German accents, and loads of shots of Sean Connery's legs. As far as Bond's relationship with women, I remembered that he was unquestionably a womanizer and women often just melted into his arms, apparently seduced by the mere sight of him. I was prepared to laugh at these outdated tropes and accept the movies' questionable gender dynamics as a product of a different time. I wasn't expecting to see point blank sexual assault.

Before Its Time: "Videodrome" and Mainstream Media Brainwashing

David Cronenberg's cult classic horror was a box office bomb in 1983, but its warning signs ring truer in 2021.

Videodrome

One of the most impressive feats a film can accomplish is becoming more relevant as the years pass.

The events that swept 2020 were way more terrifying than films like Contagion or Get Out could even begin to depict. But a cult classic horror film, Videodrome, comes startlingly close to today's real-life terror as it challenges our loyalties to mainstream media.

The New "Venom 2" Trailer Is Absolutely Bonkers​

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is set to hit theaters on September 24th.

Venom 2

Even though 2018's Venom was one of the most critically panned movies of the year, Tom Hardy and his symbiotic, cannibal alien announced via a ludicrous trailer today that they're returning for a sequel.

While the debut trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage guarantees that Venom will engage in more CGI-heavy gore, it also revealed that the film will lean further into the silly comic relief aspect that made the previous outing tolerable. Set to hit theaters on September 24th, the announcement of the film's release date came after multiple delays and rearranging by Sony.
