Alex Davidson Updated: Happy Together Gay rights, and representation of gay men on screen, vary hugely from country to country, offering a rich diversity of fascinating movies. Each of the recommendations included here is available to view in the UK. If east and south-east Asian films about gay men rarely make it to DVD, films about lesbians are rarer still. We hope that, with classic lesbian titles becoming increasingly successful, albeit at a shamefully slow rate, a future list on gay female east Asian films will appear in the future. Funeral Parade of Roses Hold on tight, as Funeral Parade of Roses takes you on an outrageous journey through sex, drugs, drag and Oedipal horror, in a weird and rather terrifying walk on the wild side.
The bananas plot is pure camp: Eddie tries to forget harrowing memories of killing his mother — and anyone who knows their Greek tragedy will second-guess the identity of the manager of a gay bar with whom he then shacks up. Farewell My Concubine It follows the friendship of two men, brought up through the strict training of the Peking Opera School. Dieyi Leslie Cheung has been trained in female roles, and plays the concubine to the King of Chu, played by his friend Xiaolou Zhang Fengyi. Dieyi falls in love with Xiaolou, but the latter marries a prostitute Gong Li , excellent , ushering in a complex saga of love and betrayal.
Cheung is remarkable as the tragic figure of Dieyi, a damaged and abused individual who resorts to dreadful betrayal when threatened by the Red Guards. Cheung, who came out as bisexual, was a hugely successful pop star in Hong Kong as well as an acclaimed actor, starring in several films by Wong Kar-wai , including Happy Together After years of suffering from depression, he killed himself in East Palace, West Palace Power play is a major theme of this intense drama, in which a gay man is apprehended while cruising in a park and spends the night in a police station under the stern eye of the arresting officer.
As the detainee tells the disapproving cop about his tumultuous life, it becomes clear he is subtly trying to seduce the masculine policeman. When the officer releases the gay man from custody, he refuses to leave, and things takes turn for the twisted.
Jean Genet would have loved it. This is one of the coolest gay films ever made, a vivid and exhilarating depiction of two men from Hong Kong — Lai Tony Leung and Ho Leslie Cheung — in an intense on-again-off-again relationship, who travel to Argentina to visit Iguazu Falls, but end up repeating the cycle of infidelity and cruelty.
After yet another break-up, Lai meets the handsome and possibly gay Chang, whose friendship jolts Lai into facing up to his responsibilities, and offers a chance of happiness and redemption. Happy Together , which won him the best director award at Cannes, is one of his best, with a terrific central performance from Leung as a young, insecure man yearning for romance. As so often with Wong Kar-wai, the last shot, accompanied by a brassy cover of the title song, is unforgettable.
Gohatto In 19th-century Japan, a young and beautiful swordsman Ryuhei Matsuda joins a group of samurai. Although homosexuality is forbidden, he immediately arouses the attention of his fellow warriors, including the stern vice-commander Takeshi Kitano.
Sexual jealousy inevitably rears its head, and violence ensues. Unorthodox erotic obsession permeates the best-known works of Nagisa Oshima , notably the ultra-controversial Ai no corrida , with its graphic scenes of unsimulated sex, and the homoerotic atmosphere of the prison camp in Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence The last scene, set by a lake, is incredibly beautiful.
Tokyo Godfathers Either way, Hana is a fantastic character, who dreams of bringing up a baby and shows the most kindness of the threesome. The bond between the three is seemingly unbreakable, and together they form the tightest of units, reinventing the concept of family.
