Favorite Lesbian-themed movie?

Just finished watching a great British movie called Tipping the Velvet about a young lesbian woman's London adventures in late 19 century England.

I have to say I was actually entralled by that production. Totally enjoyable and I was actually cheering by the time it ended(the girl got the girl at the end )

You know for the most part I have not been a big fan of most lesbian-themed films. Some others I have always enjoyed from the 80's is Desert Hearts and later on in the 90's Go Fish.

But Tipping the Velvet was definitely one of the best I have seen.

Tipping the velvet is a very good lesbian themed movie(based on the book by Sarah Waters) but I prefer Fingersmith(also by Waters).Some other good lesbian movies imo are:
*Mulholland Drive(=a masterpiece)
*But I am a cheerleader(=quite funny)
*Lost and delirous(=very sad ending)
*Fucking Amal(=good ending)
*Saving Face(=quite good)
*Imagine me and you(=the typical love story but with lesbians and the ending is happy)
etc

Lost & Delirious for me. You can't go wrong with Mischa Barton in a lesbian-themed film. Saving Face is really good as well, a breakthrough movie if you ask me.
I love lesbian-themed movies. I think they're better than most gay-themed movies. I probably would be a lesbian if it wasn't for that thing in the front I have.

If These Walls Could Talk 2 is a very good lesbian-themed TV movie.

I liked those - Fucking Amal is one of my fave films, like, generally. All Over Me is good, too, except the bit where she has an emo seizure.

I was just going to say Frida? Unless it's a different movie all together.
