    The Celluloid Closet

    ★★★★★

    A detailed account of how homosexuality was presented by the anglophone cinema during the first century of its existence (1895-circa mid 90's).

    Fascinating documentary (based on the homonymous book by Vito Russo) that quickly transcends the limits of its genre and becomes a valentine to the art of film-making, as well as a look at the changing attitudes of the general public towards gays.

    Pretty Woman

    ★★★

    If you ever meet someone who says his heart didn't jump out of his chest during the blood test scene, he is a liar.
