I Miss You When I See You
When a spark from the past shakes up Jamie’s present, will he follow his heart or society’s expectations? Best friends in high school, Kevin (Jun Li) and Jamie’s (Bryant Ji-Lok Mak) emotional attachment and feeling for each other were cut abruptly short by Kevin’s departure to Australia with his mother. Fast-forward to a dozen years later: Jamie tracks down Kevin in Australia. The reunion with his best friend reminds Kevin – suffering from depression – of his youthful ambitions. He soon decides to return to Hong Kong. Jamie, who has been enjoying a steady relationship with his girlfriend, finds his feelings for Kevin reawakened and growing stronger. Inevitably, Jamie must make a choice between society’s expectations or following his heart.

Fourplay
An eye-opening gem of a short film collection, Fourplay offers up four short stories both hilarious and emotionally powerful. Each of the individual films follow seemingly ordinary characters who find themselves thrust into some very unusual sexual situations. In Skokie, a closeted woman’s crush on her minister’s wife erupts during a weekend of dog-sitting. In Austin, a young couple discovers a kinky way to keep their relationship alive. In Tampa, a man with an extremely small penis finds his nirvana in a public restroom. And in San Francisco, a cross-dressing sex-worker faces a challenging assignment with a elderly quadriplegic man. Fourplay handles a wide variety of extremely taboo subjects with great sensitivity and depicts sex acts as potentially cathartic moments in our lives. It’s also riotously funny and deeply heartfelt.

Director Christophe Honoré talks Sorry Angel

Paris, 1993. Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps) is a semi-renowned writer and single father in his thirties trying to maintain his sense of romance and humor in spite of the turmoil in his life and the world. While on a work trip to Brittany, he meets Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), an aspiring filmmaker in his early twenties, who is experiencing a sexual awakening and eager to get out of his parochial life.

He Loves Me
Director Konstantinos Menelaou‘s sexually explicit new relationship drama He Loves Me is an exploration of the unconventional nature of love and its ability to survive against the fear of loneliness, psychological traumas and the problems that come with life in the big city. The collapsing relationship shared by two men finds an outlet for escape on an isolated beach. Once there, they feel free to expose their deepest emotions. Their wounded relationship might not survive the vacation, but it’s certainly a glorious place to feel things out. Super-sexy lead actors Sanuye Shoteka and Hermes Pittakos are artists and performers who were a real-life couple at the time that He Loves Me was shot – and the script for the film was greatly influenced by their relationship.

Rift
Paying homage to classic art-house horror films like Robert Wise’s The Haunting and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now, Rift is an enticing, well-acted and expertly-directed mystery-thriller from Iceland that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Gunnar (Björn Stefánsson) receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar (Sigurður Þór Óskarsson), months after they parted ways. Einar sounds distraught, like he’s about to do something terrible to himself, so Gunnar drives to the secluded cabin where Einar is holed up and soon discovers there is more going on than he imagined. As the two come to terms with their broken relationship, some other person seems to be lurking outside the cabin, wanting to get inside. Eerie and stylishly crafted, Rift was a big hit at film fests – not just LGBT festivals, but general horror film festivals as well, where it has earned rave reviews.

Following one man through two timelines, Boys, the newest feature from director Christophe Charrier, is a gripping and compassionate study of first love and the lingering sting of loss. We first meet Jonas (Felix Maritaud) in the present, where he’s having a rough go of it. He’s prone to starting fights at the local gay bar, and his boyfriend has had enough of his infidelity and alcohol-soaked antics. His volatile behavior may stem from a traumatic incident in his past.

BPM (Beats Per Minute)

Amid rallies, protests, fierce debates and ecstatic dance parties, the newcomer Nathan (Arnaud Valois) falls in love with Sean (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart), the group’s radical firebrand, and their passion sparks against the shadow of mortality as the activists fight for a breakthrough. Winner of the coveted Queer Palm award the Cannes Film Festival, BPM (Beats Per Minute) is one of the most acclaimed gay films of the last several year.

Tickled is an edge-of-your-seat documentary

“I’ve come across a lot of strange things and interesting people in my years as a pop culture reporter, but nothing had prepared me for what I encountered during the making of Tickled.”co-director David Farrier

After stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking – the sender mocks Farrier’s sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity.

Here’s just five of our current favorites, from various years, that you may have missed – ALL available to watch INSTANTLY! These aren’t our TOP 5, by any means – just a handful of flicks we want to highlight.

Fair Haven
After a long stay in ex-gay conversion therapy, James (Michael Grant), a young piano prodigy, returns home to his family farm and his emotionally distant father, Richard (Tom Wopat). After Richard pressures James to give up his music career and take over the farm, James agrees as a way to make up for his past. Soon, however, James finds himself face-to-face with his former lover, Charlie (Josh Green), who wants to help him turn away from his new beliefs and family expectations, and follow his dreams of studying music. A touching and deeply romantic drama, Fair Haven is often heartbreaking, but ultimately life-affirming. The performances, across the board, are terrific. Veteran character actor Wopat is excellent as the reserved, conflicted father and young up-and-comers Green and Grant make their forbidden romance palpable (and very sweet).

Leather
Producer-director Patrick McGuinn‘s Leather is this tender, sexy and unconventional romance. Upon news of the death of his estranged father, blond twenty-something Andrew (Andrew Glaszek), with his boyfriend Kyle in tow, travels from New York City to a cottage in the remote wooded area of the Catskill Mountains – where his father lived and where Andrew was raised. There he meets the bearded Birch (Chris Graham), Andrew’s childhood friend who had lived with Andrew’s father in a simple 19th-century style. Meeting Birch proves to be unsettling as he seems to be the son his father always wanted – someone he could fish and hunt with, someone who could work with one’s hands. As they spend time together, dynamics begin to shift and Andrew’s initial distrust of Birch morphs into physical interest and empathy – while young Kyle (a hilariously animated Jeremy Neal in a scene-stealing role) becomes increasingly threatened.
