  1. G zel bir derleme olmu Bir s r siyah beyaz filmi izleme listeme ald m bile imdiden Baz oyuncular ve y netmenlerle ilgili de bir s r bilgi edindim Yaln z kitap 2008 bas m ve elbette ki 2008 den bu yana lgbt related milyonlarca film ve dizi ekildi Yazar n ikinci bir kitap karmas farz olmu gibi.


  2. I was going to give this book two stars it s not so much a film studies book as it is a list of well known LGBT movies interspersed with Davies s smug, snide opinions of them but then I got to his description of Boys Don t Cry Teena Brandon a lesbian who transforms herself into a man under the name Brandon Teena, in order to gain acceptance in conservative rural Nebraska.If you re writing what is meant to be a history of LGBT cinema and still can t accurate describe Brandon Teena s gender identi [...]

  5. I wouldn t consider this as a research tool, it s like a box of chocolates Rather than a weighty tome dealing with the subject on a serious level, it s a coffee table decoration and one that lets you pick it up, delve inside and read their view.Sadly, I didn t find it a history rather than a rainbow coloured meander down a yellow brick road And that is probably its aim for a book to truly do justice to subject it would need to be about four times the length.Despite a very lengthy foreword by S [...]
