I will (again) have a similar listing of movies addressing female homosexuality. You see it's like this: my computer crashes more often than the cymbals in Tchiakovsky's "1812 Overture." It did so again little more than a month ago. Among the documents that sucked into one of the black holes of cyberspace was my Lesbian-Themed Filmography. So, I'm in the process of re-creating it. When it's ready, promise to leave a message here as to its availability.
Know what you see.
