    My favorites:

    1) Mango Kiss- if you're kinky, this one is a lot of fun. Hilarious and romantic/sweet. A little low-budget, but still nicely made and with hot butches like Michelle Wolfe (yum!).

    2) Better Than Chocolate- the lesbian movie I recommend to everyone. Perfect, brilliant story- just the right amount of drama in the form of coming out and discrimination, without being too heavy or sad, romantic, sweet, funny, beautiful.

    3) But I'm a Cheerleader- that funny camp lesbian movie that's still romantic, sweet, and not too over-the-top. I absolutely adore it. And Clea Duvall is my favorite lesbian character.

    4) If These Walls Could Talk 2- an HBO movie that feels a little disjointed (what hooks the three storylines together is that they take place in the same house). But it's good to watch, brings a lot of lesbian issues to the light, and is probably the most accurate portrayal of lesbians that I've seen in a long while. Plus, watching a butch Chloe Sevigny make it with Michelle Williams is reason enough to watch.

    5) Bound- not really much focus on the lesbian angle, but still a really great story all around (very tense, dramatic, on-the-edge of your seat absorbing sort of stuff), and Gina Gershon as a hot butch handygirl and Jennifer Tilly as her smoking hot femme.

    6) Tipping the Velvet- based on the great (better) book. It's fun and sweet, and I'm enamored with 19th century British male impersonators. Who wouldn't be?

    Avoid at all costs:

    1) Lost and Delirious- over-the-top, way too melodramatic story of boarding school girls in love. It might have been a better movie had they just treated the story a little more lightly- no cheesy music, etc.. Still, Piper Perabo as a lesbian . . .

    2) It's In the Water- okay, okay, it's cute. But it's really dated, way too easily solved, and basically, is just fodder. But it's enjoyable if you want something really light and fluffy, made like a GLBT afterschool special.

    Hope you find something good to watch!

    Michelle Tea books are really good. I recommend Valencia or Rose of No Man's Land. Valencia is a memoir about the hardcore lesbian lifestyle in California in the 90s. Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden is a lesbian classic. Empress of the World is pretty decent. It's about girls at camp. As for movies, Loving Annabel is kind of interesting. It's about a lesbian student/teacher relationship. Thirteen is not a lesbian movie, but it has girls who explore sexuality. But I'm A Cheerleader is quite cute, as it has been mentioned in previous answers. The Kids Are All Right just came out, it's about lesbian parents and it was amazing.

    Gia is a good one. It doesn't just focus on Lesbianism, but rather on the lifestyle of a model who happens to fall in love with another woman. It's a great movie. But be prepared to ball your eyes out when you watch it.

    Well you just answered my two suggestions. I love those two. There's always - if these walls could talk 2. I saw Mango Kiss but that was a little strange.
