I would suggest Okoge (1992, Nakajima Takehiro) and the documentary Rasen no sobyo (1991, Kojima Yasufumi). For those who can read Italian, and interesting essay has been published in AsiaMedia at http://venus.unive.it/asiamed/vetrina/proposte/omosessualita.html

> Oshima's Gohatto has been mentioned, but many other Oshima films depict gay or queer characters; the Korean conscript who performs a harakiri after sodomizing a dutch prisoner of war in Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, the Catholic priest in Death by Hanging, and the opening scene of In the Realm of the Senses.
