Making Love (dir. by Arthur Hiller, 1982)
Welcome. You’re listening to Reel Charlie Speaks, an LGBTQ podcast spin-off of the film and television review blog, Reel Charlie looking at movies and TV from a gay male perspective since 2009.
I'm your host, Philip Bahr. Each month I select a classic queer film, television series, or creator. I talk about how the subject spoke to me when I first discovered it years ago, and how its stood the test of time.
In episode 9 I explore the classic gay male film, Making Love from 1982. In addition to discussing the plot, I also talk about the film as melodrama, the fallout for the male actors, and why this movie often gets ignored in the queer canon of films.
Currently Making Love is unavailable to stream. Perfect reason to hold on to your disk player.
The director's name is not Arthur Hill, but Arthur Hiller.
Personal Best is a very important LGBTQ film from this time period.
