Oh man I LOVE THIS QUESTION. I love queer lady movies, tv, books. Here’s the best wlw movies I’ve seen in the last, like, year.
They kept making fun of me in the room for not having seen this, so my secret santa got me it for Christmas! It’s so weird and sexy and suspenseful. Great sexual thriller. Also, it’s the Wachowski’s first film!
SHOW ME LOVE
I love this intimate Swedish film about teenage lesbians exploring. It’s so small and real and relatable.
I loved this movie SO MUCH. Another very small, character-driven drama. It’s a triptych, with three vignettes. The story with Kristen Stewart and Lily Gladstone hit me RIGHT IN THE FEELS. There’s a scene where they ride a horse together that I’m pretty sure I was clutching my chest for the duration of. I want a whole movie of just Lily’s character. I want everyone to find love and ride horses and pet dogs and be happy.
Honorable mention because I haven’t seen it yet is The Handmaiden because I fucking loved the book but I wasn’t able to catch the film in theaters so I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ve heard it’s great.
