“Beach Rats” is a tale of the dawn of a young gay man’s self-awareness

“Beach Rats” is a tale of the dawn of a young gay man’s self-awareness | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

Although many critics have called “Beach Rats” a coming-of-age tale, Eliza Hittman’s atmospheric verité drama about a gay Brooklyn teenager struggling to accept his homosexuality doesn’t actually come to much of anything, let alone the incipient wisdom, knowledge or — at a bare minimum — understanding that usually accompany such journeys. Rather, this very thinly sliced character study of beautiful if benighted adolescence is more a pre-coming-of-age tale, one that takes us close to, but not through, the transformative acquisition of good judgment... It ends, in other words, not in a state of enlightenment, but in sheer panic.

Why 2017 was a game-changing year for LGBT cinema

Why 2017 was a game-changing year for LGBT cinema | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

While a few high-profile films have broken the mould of the type-cast or side-lined LGBT character in recent decades, such as Ang Lee’s 2005 Brokeback Mountain or Todd Haynes’s 2015 Carol, equality of LGBT representation in cinema still seems some way off: a US study on the top 100 films of 2016 showed only 1.1 per cent of speaking characters were gay, lesbian or bisexual, no speaking character was identified as transgender, and only one film featured a gay protagonist. That film was Moonlight.
