The Buzz On The Streets

I don't know why there is such a buzz about "Brokeback Mountain" this weekend. Is it because the characters are not portrayed as your stereo typical raging, flamboyant, drag queens? Hi girlfriend with two snaps up in the air in Z formation said with the gay lisp. Why do Americans need to have gay male themed films be comedies as in "The Bird Cage." The Americanized version of the French story "La Cage Aux Folles". "TO Wong Foo..." about three drag queens going across America. The movie "Jeffrey" about a gay male in New York city. Which had Patrick Stewart playing an old queen. It took Hollywood 23 years since the release of the 1982 film "Making Love" to embark on another main stream, serious film about two men falling in love. Is the buzz on the streets because the actors are two of the biggest up and cumming (pun intended) stars in Hollywood? Is it because of the make out scenes are too intense for main stream America? Could it mean now that the Marlboro Man is gay because of "Brokeback Mountain"? We never saw him with a woman only with his horse. Hmm could he be having a relationship with his horse to kill the time in the wild? It's something to think about. Hello people wake up. This is the 21st century. We still have prejudice against the people who don't fall into our acceptable social norms, or ethical backgrounds. So what if film has a R rating, it's not like it's a triple XXX rated gay male porn flick done by a major motion picture film studio. Look at the 1996 British gay coming of age film "Beautiful Thing." The Indie films such as "Trick" or "The Edge of Seventeen." The John Waters movies featuring the transvestite Divine they were all not main stream. Ok maybe John Waters wasn't the best example, but I moved here from Baltimore so give me lots of leeway on this one. So I send my props out to the cast and crew of "Brokeback Mountain". To Hollywood I say is it going to take another 23 years to make a serious film about two men falling in love? Hey where are the main stream, serious love films about two women falling in love? The film "Monster" doesn't count in my opion as a true love story between two women. For me it was more about the murders then women falling in love and having a relationship.


  • saw it yesterday
    still haunted by the damn thing
    a love story of epic proportions
