lesbian canon

only featuring films i like that influenced my thoughts on lesbian identity in one way or another, meaning that some are subtextual, slightly based on vibes, or feature tropes people might consider outdated/harmful. favourites are marked with a heart in the notes. have been thinking of expanding this with movies that are otherwise exploring queer desire but that would really get out of hand length-wise! my unfiltered lesbian tag
