Also omitted are movies in which the gay element although important is largely suppressed, e.g., "Suddenly Last Summer", "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", "The Servant", as are films in which the gay element is subordinate to some other subject such as murder, e.g., "Rope", "Swoon", and "Compulsion"; again, there are exceptions such as "Cruising" (a controversial film deserving of reappraisal) and "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil".
Some films have a gay sensibility, address our issues, and have helped form our attitudes, but have no clear gay content, from "Show Boat" (especially that rendition of 'Bill"), "The Member of the Wedding", and "Auntie Mame", to the more recent "Billy Elliot" and "Good Will Hunting" (although lacking an overt gay character, reflects its gay director's sensibility, and addresses issues important to gays such as alienation and mentoring).
