Okay, so there's no subtext here. The editors have simply strung together an alphabetized listing of many (but not all) films touching on gay and lesbian themes. But, if you're wondering where to start in this specialized area, "Bent Lens" provides some pointers. A few caveats: the indices are limited to names of directors and genres (what about the stars?), there is no indication of what is and what is not available on video, and there are some factual errors (James LeGros is NOT the psycopathic killer in "Blood and Concrete," for instance), but Daniel and Jackson have provided a valuable service here, and I'm especially grateful for the wealth of information on the many foreign films--from Hong Kong to Reykjavik--that so rarely reach these shores. Thumbs up from this movie fan.

Very good reference book Jan. 29 2006
By ronwol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For those who are interested in ggay movies, this is a must have book. It is very well written, and researched. One good thing, is that you can locate a movie via a number of way, by title, director, subject, etc.
