It probably shouldn't surprise any of us the the bulk of the entries in the Encyclopedia of Lesbian Movie Scenes come from European films of the '60s and '70s, "erotic thrillers", and an ad hoc genre labelled "Documentary/Amateur" that seems to consist mostly of scenes from various permutations of The Real World and the German version of Big Brother. But there are also a ton of screencaps from selected scenes from real movies, such as Marlene Dietrich's cabaret kiss for Gary Cooper's benefit in Morocco; to Kate Beckinsale and Frances McDormand's swimming pool frolic from Laurel Canyon; to a handful of frames from the "Margot's Lovers" montage from The Royal Tenenbaums. Plus, most of the scenes are rated, on a scale from 1 to 5, in terms of build-up, the quality of the kissing and/or sex, and the quality of the film overall. Of course, while you're there, you might as well check out the entry for Sinful Obsession - although I shouldn't have to tell you that stills from the story of a married woman who "suddenly without no appearant reason decides to secretly start working at a high-class brothel" [sic sic SIC] are probably not safe for work.
