    we do

    Meaning, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest to use a 70s example

    Or Dog Day Afternoon

    Or more recently a movie  like There Will Be Blood or last year may be a film like Her.

    They are out there, but not the norm

    THey are even less likely to occur with gay characters

      a first rate movie with prominent gay characters in it. If that ever happens, it probably won't about being gay.

      Brokeback Mountain was very well made, but it was not a substantial story.

        I would imagine it would be a subplot in some way of the story, but not the story

        Meaning that it somehow factors in, but ultimately not the story itself.

        I agree about Brokeback Mountain.

        We simply have yet to see  a movie that's like a One Flew OVer the Cuckoos nest with a gay character in the leading role

        There are some good ones out there, but nothing truly transformative or a masterpiece.
