Male Gay Romance

I put the films I consider the best first and the worst last in each section. My parameters are production value, uniqueness, cinematography, actors performance, story and noncensorship. I mean, the thing that defines gay is being attracted to same sex, and the visual representation of that is kiss/sex, so if a movie doesn't show that, then it isn't showing gay people, but telling us they're gay. And since cinema is audiovisual, that's both a waste of opportunity and goes against the storytelling mantra show-don't-tell. I also tend to dislike movies were none of the two in the pair are pretty to me, I know that's shallow, but whatever. And I don't mean just having a fit body, most movies have characters that have a fit body but don't act well and/or have an ugly face and/or worse, are uninteresting-looking. Oh, and my dislike for comedies may rear its fugly head here.

Good Ending

I loved this movie. I found the plot to be interesting, the characters don't turn gay unexpectedly, there are reasons for the events. I loved the sex scene and the ending was a good one too.

This is a very well made film, and also pretty unique. The ending, even if happy, is not what you'd expect. Also, the romance isn't the only thing happening in the movie, it's a family drama, but the gay guy is the main character and his romance is pretty important.

Plan B (2009)
This is a Marco Berger movie, so it feels very slow. But the slow also feels deliberate and not too detrimental to the enjoyment. When I read the synopsis, I expected the movie to play that straightforward and it was a disappointment that that's not the case and the main plot is basically lost.

Period gay romance movie. Spoiler the ones that supposedly were the main couple don't end up together, and one of them ends up with a woman. But no one dies. It's based on a real life person's memoir.
