The Ultimate Lesbian List
List creator: sappho
Created on: September 18, 2002 - 3:14 PM PDT
Description: A list of films with either a lesbian plot, strong lesbian characters or those oh so sneaky lesbian undertones. This is just about everything I could find here on Greencine. This girl had too much time on her hands this evening! :)

But I'm a Cheerleader (1999)
12345678910
  Funny, cute, campy, kitschy and real-feeling at the same time. Great acting all the way around and an interesting coming of age romp.
The Truth About Jane (2001)
12345678910
  Stockard Channing plays the mother of a daughter coming to terms with her sexuality. Your classic "Yikes, my daughter is a lesbian film." Unbearably sappy at times, moving at others (think of the "Lifetime" channel)...worth renting however..
Go Fish (1994)
12345678910
  I hated this movie but this is a list of lesbian films so there ya have it.
The Sex Monster (1999)
12345678910
  Cute. Laughed out loud at some parts. Husband and wife couple decide to have a threesome and the wife starts enjoying women a little too much. Kind of ridiculous but cute in an odd way.
Lost and Delirious (2001)
12345678910
  Sexy, tragic and heartwarming. Those of you who went to private school will appreciate this film.
The Monkey's Mask (2000)
12345678910
  Hollywood takes on sapphistry. A typical blockbuster film but nothing to write home about.
Aimee & Jaguar (1999)
12345678910
  One of my favorites. Based on a true story. Extremely moving and heartbreaking tale of soulmates torn apart. Get thee a box of tissues for this one.
The Color Purple (1985)
12345678910
  Another favorite. How could any breathing being not enjoy this film? Prominent lesbian background story happening here. Very real, honest and gripping film.
Bar Girls (1994)
12345678910
  I did not like this film either but I had to put it on this list. It was very stereotypical and boring honestly.
Show Me Love (1998)
12345678910
  This is one of the few that I haven't seen. I have heard good things about it however.
Times Square (1980)
12345678910
  FABULOUS film about two runaway teens trying to become rock stars in NYC during the eighties. There is some very obvious butch/femme realness in this film. The actress who plays Nicki is phenomenal and her acting is worth watching this film twice. A+++!
Bagdad Cafe (1987)
12345678910
  Great film with an oh so subtle lesbian vibe happening.
Ellen DeGeneres: The Beginning (2000)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Ellen DeGeneres...no need to explain.
If These Walls Could Talk 2 (2000)
12345678910
  Some great vignettes here. Follows a timeline from the 60's to present that illustrates the progression of gay/lesbian rights.
Desert Hearts (1985)
12345678910
  This was an ok movie but nothing to write home about.
Thelma & Louise (1991)
12345678910
  Ok maybe there is a subtle lesbian thing happening between them...I like to think so anyway.
Better Than Chocolate (1999)
12345678910
  One of the best lesbian love story films to hit the screen in quite some time. One of those movies you'll want to own.
It's In The Water (1997)
12345678910
  Very stereotypical and ridiculous. I don't know what else to say. Maybe if you are overtired and really bored you'll be able to pull out an iota of camp value from this.
Wild Things (1998)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Big Hollywood does lesbianism again. Steamy but somehow shallow and unfulfilling.
Jaded (1996)
12345678910
  Weird, hard to find film that deals with woman-on-woman rape. Very disturbing but riveting none-the-less. Probably the only film that touches on such a subject.
Bound (1996)
12345678910
  One of the best! Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly will make your DVD player melt! One of the best....mafia, suspense and lesbianism in one.
Boys on the Side (1995)
12345678910
  Whoopi Goldberg's character is a lesbian in this film and the lesbian subtext weaves it's way throughout the film. It is a touching movie all the way around. A tear jerker too. :(
Claire of the Moon (1992)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Wishy washy not realistic, yucky poo farce of a lesbian film. In my humble opinion.
Fire (1996)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Haven't seen this either. It got rave reviews however...it's in my rental queue
Gia (1998)
12345678910
  A very good film. Touches on the supermodels affairs with women. Cinematically good but really distorts the facts of Gia's life. Not very fact based.
Heavenly Creatures (1994)
12345678910
  One of my favorite films. HUGE lesbian undertones coupled up with complete psychosis and moving clay figures....a must rent.
Sister My Sister (1994)
12345678910
  Twisted tale of sisterly love. Based on a true story. Another great film.
A Girl Thing (2001)
12345678910
Not Rated
  One of the vignettes in this film is about a lesbian relationship.
The Watermelon Woman (1996)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Haven't seen it but it's a lesbian film so here it is.
Antonia's Line (1995)
12345678910
  A good film that melds comedy and drama nicely.
Basic Instinct (1992)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Sensationalized hollywood film but I liked it.
Chasing Amy (Criterion Collection) (1997)
12345678910
  Cute film that turns annoying after about 15 minutes.
Orlando (1992)
12345678910
  Not specifically lesbian but deals with gender. Beautifully filmed, amazing soundtrack. This film is so compelling. I own it and watch it at least once a year. Made everyone I know see it....all loved it equally.
Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her (2000)
12345678910
  This film is a great film all the way around. Comprised of vignettes. One of the vignettes features a very heartbreaking, tear inducing story of a lesbian couple.
Therese and Isabelle (1968)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Haven't seen it. It's on my list. I'll hope for the best.
Homo Heights (1998)
12345678910
  An acid trip of a film starring the eccentricly lovable Quentin Crisp. Lea Delaria plays a big old butch lesbian in this film....and a cute one too!
Edge of Seventeen (1998)
12345678910
  Hey! It's Lea Delaria playing a butch lesbian again.
Primary Colors (1998)
12345678910
  Well, now it's Kathy Bates playing a lesbian. Kathy Bates is great in every movie and this one is no exception.
Chutney Popcorn (1999)
12345678910
Not Rated
  This was a cute film that deals with a lesbian pregnancy as well as religion and culture.
