    I have been hunting the internet for movies that one we as "masculine " gay community can one relate to that for one doesn't fall into the cliche route. If I can think of one I would say My Brother the Devil



    Because I have been through a similar circumstance, less violence of course, I can relate to the feelings of the characters involved. That aside this is a good watch, that doesn't fall into the same trappings of the cliche

    Weekend

    I actually really enjoyed this. It was a very honest depiction of how two people can connect even in a short amount of time. It doesn't have that typical formula gay films use. I believe this is on Netflix

    Rag Tag (2009)

    Rag and Tag are childhood friends, separated as teenagers, their lives heading in very different directions. Years later they meet again, and realise how strong their feelings are for each other - but there are many obstacles in their way - a Zimbabwean crime ring, their own families and religious communities. Winner of three festival awards, and directed by Adaora Nwandu in the UK and Zimbabwe.

    Brother to Brother (2004)

    A gay art student befriends an older homeless guy who happens to be a major figure from the Harlem Renaissance. Flashbacks show what life was like during the guy's younger days. The student finds that he still faces some of the same challenges today. It's a decent look at past and present struggles and how things change and stay the same. And though there is a relationship, it is not relationship-focused, despite the impression given by the Youtube thumbnail. I think this is Anthony Mackie's first leading role, though it was overshadowed by his portrayal as lesbian-impregnating Jack in Spike Lee's She Hate Me, also released in 2004. (When I attended a SHM screening, the audience hollered at the ending. Possibly the greatest audience reaction I've ever experienced.)

    From Beginning to End was...interesting. Freaked me out for a bit to be honest. The thought of two brothers being in love is just...(sigh) whatever floats your boat.

    Strange Fruit (2004)

    New York attorney William Boyals has escaped the Louisiana bayou of his childhood, but he must return to investigate the death of a childhood friend who, like Boyals himself, was both black and gay.

    I wrote a review and posted clips from this film on the site 4 years ago. Still one of the ONLY non-stereotypical black gay films ever made that wasn't about dating and relationships.

    While Undertow pretty much tells a very familiar plot it adds another element to give it an original feel. Also, on Netflix. You can probably tell I watch foreign films lol

    Another random movie I came across on Netflix was Cuatro Lunas (Four Moons). It's anthology film that tells the story of a first crush, reunited friends, a tested relationship and an older mans obsession.
