Here, assembled into one comprehensive annual volume, is a rundown of the previous year's most intriguing gay, lesbian, and transgendered films, illustrated guides that are Out, Outrageous, Provocative, and Proud. A defiant challenge to films today, they each get sweaty with Gay Cowboys, Gay Nazis, Nude Marines, Ballsy Detectives, Hit Men, Porn Stars, and Women in Love...With each other. The Scent of Lavender, the Smell of Testosterone, and the Aroma of Velvet. It's all here! Descriptions and reviews of at least 140 feature-length gay films, with commentary, special features, essays on key moments in the previous year's filmmaking, and hundreds of photos. Each volume is loaded with the kind of gossipy insight that's making the entertainment industry spin. Authoritative, exhaustive, and essential, Blood Moon's Guide to Gay and Lesbian Film is the queer girl's and boy's one-stop resource for what to add to their film queue. The film synopses and the snippets of critic's reviews are reason enough to keep this annual compendium of cinematic information close to the DVD player. But the extras including the Blood Moon Awards and commentary on queer short films are butter on the popcorn. Books to Watch Out For ( Blood Moon's Guide to Gay and Lesbian Film is like having access to a feverishly compiled queer film fan's private scrapbook. This first edition gives a snapshot of where we are in Hollywood now, which should be updated with each further annual edition. It's a lot of fun and, like screen representations of us, verges wildly between titillation and tribulation. Now.I'm ready for my closeup... Gay Times (London) From feisty Blood Moon Productions, this big, lively guidebook of (mostly) recent gay and gayish films is not meant to be a dust-collecting reference book covering the history of GLBT films. Instead, it's an annual running commentary on what's new and what's going on in gay filmmaking. Mandate Includes everything fabu in the previous years' movies. An essential guide for both the casual viewer and the hard-core movie-watching homo. Bay Windows (Boston)"
