Introducing Mary Foulk, the Lesbian Life Movie Reviewer

Tatum O’Neal was my first screen crush. She was the highlight of Bad News Bears. I joined the local little league in search of her. I didn’t find her, but I did find a cute second baseman named Mercy. We became “best friends” and junior high was really fun.

I love movies. I didn’t really have a choice given the older brother that I had. Stephen would force me to watch Mame, West Side Story, Ordinary People and anything with Shirley Temple. Oscar night was more revered than Christmas.

My wife Alyson is a documentary filmmaker and instructor. Let’s just say I married the movies. Some people enjoy role playing like a doctor and a nurse or a teacher and a student – we like role playing Siskel and Ebert. When we were first dating, I had to impress her with my movie knowledge. I stayed up night after night watching rentals, preparing for our dates just so I could charm her with, “Oh, did you see Catherine Deneuve in Indochine?” I guess it worked.

Here are some of my favorites:

  • Favorite Lesbian Movie: But I’m a Cheerleader
  • Second Favorite: When Night Is Falling
  • Favorite Closeted or Close-Lipped Lesbian Actress: Jodie Foster
  • Favorite Out Lesbian Actress: Cherry Jones or Cynthia Nixon
  • Favorite Straight Actress Playing a Lesbian Role: Radha Mitchell or Patricia Clarkson (both from High Art)
