Totally depressing, brutally shocking or emotionnally involving, with a thin or inexistent light of hope, which of these movies has, in your opinion, the saddest ending? Discuss here

Pride Week: Most LGBT-Proud Film
To celebrate Pride Week, which, depending on the country and city, is held in June or the first week of July, which of the films below do you think best embodies the spirit of LGBT Pride? After voting, discuss here. To view or vote in Part 2 of this poll, go here. To vote in other Pride polls, go here. If you're interested in a bit of background: As the 1995 documentary, The Celluloid Closet, illustrates, for a long time in cinema, most LGBT characters were portrayed to evoke laughter, pity, or fear. Movies like those, whether in early cinema or later (as in Basic Instinct), are obviously not represented in this poll. Relatively early on, there were screenwriters, such as Gore Vidal (Ben-Hur) and Stewart Stern (Rebel Without a Cause), who did write in positive messages but they had to be so subtle, or be left on the editing room floor, that the films, although they should be appreciated for widening the lens, don't really qualify as proud. Cinema evolved as society did and more realistic and diverse LGBT characters appeared on screen. All of these films don't necessarily have perfect messages but are noteworthy in some way; which of them do you think best captures the spirit of LGBT Pride?

The Keystone State Movies
The Keystone State is the official nickname of Pennsylvania. The word keystone is from architecture, it describes the central wedge-shaped stone in an arch which holds all the other stones in place. Pennsylvania is called "The Keystone State" because it was the middle colony of the original thirteen colonies, and because Pennsylvania has held a key position in the economic, social, and political development of the United States (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Pennsylvania became the 2nd state of the United States of America in 1787. These movies have a connection with Pennsylvania. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Pennsylvania? You may discuss the poll here Click here to vote for other States of America

Remembering Jonathan Demme
Acclaimed film director Jonathan Demme has passed away at the age of 73. Despite his long career starting in the mid '70s with Caged Heat (1974), Demme will be forever associated his masterpiece, The Silence of the Lambs (1991). A consummate artist, he worked up to the date of his death, his final project being Seven Seconds (2018), a new show for Netflix. Equally adept at comedies, dramas, thrillers and concert films, Demme was a Renaissance man. Since Silence of the Lambs is his obvious legacy let's focus on his other films. Which of his most popular films (other than SotL) will you remember Demme for? Discuss the list here *minimum rating 6.0 stars, 1,000 votes ------------------- Demme was not only a gifted filmmaker but a serious fan himself. This story from a fellow attendee of the Toronto International Film Festival illustrates: When I saw Moonlight (2016) at TIFF, Jonathan Demme was sitting in front of me. A volunteer pointed out the VIP section and asked if he wanted to move, but he politely refused. After the film he was clearly clearly ecstatic and during the Q&A he waved his arms frantically to ask a question. When it came time for the last question he was randomly chosen, and without introducing himself, he asked a question about the sound design. After the movie got out I saw him get introduced to Barry Jenkins and they hugged and laughed warmly. One more story, just because it's so fun... He lost a power struggle with star Goldie Hawn over their film Swing Shift (1984); the rental copy of the movie at Philadelphia’s TLA Video was accompanied by a Post-It note from Demme explaining how different his original, still-unseen version of the film looked.
