I pretty much checked out at this scene which was a pivotal failure:
Q: what is a faggot?
A: that's a word that people use to make gay people feel bad
Are you fucking kiidddddddding me? Blew it.
I thought the film was just rather gauche, predictable, and basic. They really blew several opportunities to make an interesting film about race class and sexuality and just sort of left this milquetoast story floating there with me wanting so much much more. It was essentially a safe picture that was going to be made sooner or later.
One could easily compare it to brokeback mountain, which was only marginally better because the subject matter was so pastoral and safe already that it acted as a foil to the eros and transgression of the characters.
Do you think Marianne Faceful is a good pornstar name? Does it lend a touch of class to this otherwise maligned profession?
also never thought I would see Forest Whitaker in a homoerotic dream sequence........... playing cricket.
And I'm not sure if its homage is intentional or not, but it seems like a cross analysis with vertigo would be super interesting
Haha, most unecessary spoiler ever?
The whole time I just kept thinking` how daft can this IRA dude be?!?!!?`
For better or for worse, I kind of forgot that this is one of my all time favorite albums since I was in like 7th grade. No denying.
The crying game. I realize I am very late to the game for people who are interested in queer theory and cinema et cetera but man, this one really took me by surprise. like a more awkward almodovar, still very intricate and complex. In all its gauche 80s brit style. A+.
