What happened? Last year was so great for queer-themed Hollywood pics, from that cowboy movie to Capote and Transamerica. In 2007 we got Judi Dench as a pathetic predatory lesbian. Count on Inside Out to even the score. Here, arranged by order of screening, are NOWs picks of the best (and the rest) from the big 17th annual fest.
