5 LGBT films of 2016 you must see.

Words by Marvin Maddix

 

 

In no particular order we run down some of the best LGBT films of 2016.

Moonlight

At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Barry Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.

 

King Cobra

It’s 2006, YouTube is in its infancy, and internet porn is still behind a paywall. Taking the stage name Brent Corrigan, a fresh-faced, wannabe adult video performer is molded into a star by Stephen, a closeted gay porn mogul who runs the skin flick empire Cobra Video from his seemingly ordinary suburban home. But as Brent’s rise and demands for more money put him at odds with his boss, he also attracts the attention of a rival producer and his unstable lover.

 

Closet Monster

A creative and driven teenager is desperate to escape his hometown and the haunting memories of his turbulent childhood.

 

Being 17

When his mother takes in a bully whose own mother is ill, the son of a soldier must learn to live with the boy who terrorised him.

 

Spa Night

Los Angeles’ Korean spas serve as meeting place and bridge between past and future for generations of immigrant families; Spa Night explores one Korean-American family’s dreams and realities as each struggles with the overlap of personal desire, disillusionment and sense of tradition.
