My Weekend Crush

Since the invention of the kiss, there have only been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one, well, let’s just call it our standard bearer. As my grand lesbian movie rewind experience continues, I spent last night reliving that romance in Reno, “Desert Hearts.” The 1985 classic holds its own all these years later. Sure, it also may have invented the U-Haul (or in this case Union-Pacific) lesbian. But, my, don’t parts still reach in and put a string of lights around your heart. The second Cay’s convertible roared into reverse and her hair whipped across her aviators we, and Professor Vivian Bell, were goners. But it was That Kiss. That in the rain, through the window, dripping wet kiss that made our hearts truly soar. That set the bar for all other lesbian movie kisses to follow. Heck, movie kisses in general. And what a high bar it was, indeed. Happy weekend, all.



p.s. Need to watch the whole thing for yourself now? You can rent and stream it from Wolfe on Demand or, of course, my new BFF Netflix.

By the way, Helen Shaver is still acting and can be seen in The Birthday Cake, coming to a gay and lesbian film festival near you. She is fucking awesome.

The kiss WAS epic but...it was the love scene in the hotel that made the movie go from epic to legendary. Nobody these days would dare film a love scene between anybody with NO music.
