23. "My Beautiful Launderette"
Just because no one's mentioned it.

I do love "Maurice" a lot. It's also interesting because the two men are from different classes in a very class-conscious society.

"Big Eden" is mainstream and simply wonderful. It's so sweet it borders on fantasy, kind of the way "Wong Foo" does.

I just recently saw "Sordid Lives", and while gayness is not the central theme, it's prominent. One of the funniest films I've seen in a long time.

"Kiss of the Spider Woman"--a 'classic'.
