2 Seconds is about Laurie, a woman who is kicked off her downhill mountain bike racing team. She moves to Montreal and develops a contentious friendship with a grumpy ex-cycling champion who now builds bikes. This is a well-received character driven story.

Crafty, ruthless and charismatic Irma Vep is not a vampire in the classical sense, but she and her gang of jewel thieves are very much psychological bloodsuckers as they con, seduce and steal their way across the upper-crust landscape of Paris after WW1. An absorbing silent-era classic in serial form. A must for any serious [...]

Chan works as a fetish stripper on an interactive website, Nicole is a businesswoman who gets her yayas watching Chan on her computer every night, and Zero is [...]
Forbidden love at a girls’ boarding school. This movie could have been a fun, intense fantasy of seduction, but instead settles for disjointed, boring and depressing. Loving Annabelle has its very strong supporters, so don’t take our word for it. Watch for yourself and then let us know what you think.
GirlsNite Review by Jennifer Brooks
Dieane Weist is over-the-top as a self-absorbed opera star who longs to reconnect with her estranged son. He’s gay but can’t tell her, so he concocts a cover story that predictably unravels in this fast, furious, and very funny farce. A great Buddy Night movie – invite the gang and make popcorn for this gigglefest.

Graphically violent movie filled with “lesbian aggression” cliches.

Now on the run, S. tries to make things right in her inner world by killing everyone who crosses her. Trouble is, [...]

This German film explores the psychology of S&M, B&D, Master and servant. A lesbian dominatrix runs a gallery show in Hamburg and ultimately must face her own desires and fears. This is one to watch more for the subject explored than for the quality of filmmaking.

They succeed [...]

In Germany, she assumes a male identity and falls in love with Anne before she tragically must return to Iran.
Quality cheese! This is what REAL hokey 70’s dykesploitation films are all about, kids. In Vampyros Lesbos you have hot stripper dykes, pretty ingénues trapped in mental wards, psychedelic nude frolicking, lots of bloody screams and plenty of screamy blood, and a super-hottie vampire countess running around in a bikini and putting the moves on [...]
This German film hits the San Francisco lesbian scene. Not necessarily realistically, but hey, it’s a B movie. Watch it for the novelty and naughty bits, and fast forward to keep it from dragging you to that tortuously boring why-am-I-watching-this? wasteland. Susie Bright costars. Filmed in black and white.
