  4. Zach Closs's rating of the film The Celluloid Closet

  9. Eric Brown's rating of the film The Celluloid Closet

    I loved this. Well researched and presented documentary.

  10. ramosbarajas's rating of the film The Celluloid Closet

    Great commentary on a subject that is not often mentioned. Although not perfect, it tries to do some intersectionality, but aside from that it's mainly white cinema with very few black films. However, it's a great introduction and very interesting. I certainly finally recognized some of the subtle references to gayness that I had missed before.

  11. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Celluloid Closet

    A useful and exhaustive survey. It's served well by plenty of judicious illustration and traces a convincing chronological trajectory despite a somewhat gooey narration. All-in-all, a decent realisation of a compendious book.

  12. Labyrinth of a Cyborg's rating of the film The Celluloid Closet

    The best documentary i've ever seen. Great investigation on the progress of homosexuality in Hollywood.

  13. i hate movies's rating of the film The Celluloid Closet

    essential viewing, but also: read the book!

  14. Phil Worfel's rating of the film The Celluloid Closet

    Incredible examination of not just homosexuality in film but the way that Hollywood and the movie going public treat minority in cinema. What goes for homosexuality goes for african americans, christians, women, and any other group that makes the general movie going audience in any way uncomfortable. It should be seen by everyone.
