more tasteful lesbian sex scenes out there.

V for Vendetta is a classic in its own right. Anarchy, an explosion of an England landmark, and an anti-hero who speaks mostly in Vs. There's little better. Yet, because this was a mainstream movie when it came out, I was surprised by the vital bit of lesbianness in it. Evey (Natalie Portman) finds herself trapped in a prison cell and uncovers a long letter written by another inmate. The inmate tells her life story, her struggles with her sexuality, her various lovers, and the way The Man targeted her simply because she loved another woman. The story is humanizing, realistic, and extremely touching. You can watch the full scene on youtube here or below:3. Smokin' Aces (2006)

Finally, three movies that deserve an honorary mention. D.E.B.S., a campy lesbian spy movie, I've been told is amazing, though I have to confess to never have seeing it. Definitely putting that one up on my netflixs. Henry & June I feel deserves a mention for multiple reasons, even though it isn't exactly an action movie; possible thriller at very best, but even that is a stretch. It's the story of Anais Nin, the erotica writer of the early 1900s, and her twisted marriage. However, it has Uma Thurman and Maria de Mediros (Butch's girlfriend from Pulp Fiction) acting as lesbian lovers and features one of the sexiest scenes to burn the theatre screen. To push the point, it was the first film to replace the X rating with the NC-17 rating. And did I mention Uma Thurman has lesbian sex? Okay. Calming down. Finally, Black Swan is definitely one to look out for. It comes out on December 1st, and you can see the trailer here. It looks like a mindfuck, to say the least. And Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis kiss in the trailer. Well, I know where I'll be December 1st.
