 i really enjoyed your article on queer films though i may not agree with all perspectives, but seeing the work of cocteau, sirk and jarman celebrated in an article always gives me much to be happy about. however, the one film that went unmentioned, jean genet's "un chant d'amour" from 1950, is perhaps the most profound of all. it still is almost without rival, and is yet another remarkable statement from genet that goes relatively unnoted. though genet divorced himself from this film later into his "mature" career, which was a bit misquided, it still remains a powerful and poetic work of cinema. if you have never seen this film you should make the effort to see it because once you have everything after it seems so white-washed, contrived and made for marketing.

 It would have been nice to see something written on one of the better films of last year, Mysterious Skin.

 The joke in X-Men 2 that made me laugh the loudest was when Pyro outs himself as a "flamer" at his parents' house.

 hmmm, this is tragic. a great article that only generated seven comments?? you`ll be out of a job soon at this rate Mr Foote. i`d like to see stylus do a Survivor style thing where readers vote off the worst writer each week. im not saying it`s you foote, not by any stretch, but what a great incentive for writers to up the ante if every week they stood a chance of instant dismissal by the Stylus Readership Firing Squad.
