    Queer Film Challenge 2019

    Task 27: A film in which the characters are queer, but the main plot does not form around their queer identity

    Boy, I sure could use a sad cowboy emoji right about now!

    This is kind of a perfect movie? I find it subjectively appealing because it's about two men fighting to survive in an uncaring world and finding strength in their own ill-fated relationship, similar to Scarecrow and My Own Private Idaho, but it's also…

    This is exactly the kind of critical look at social media I've been wanting! Not the baby boomers' "Millennials are stupid because they are always on their phones," but a self-aware millennial's acknowledgement of "Social media can actually be really bad for our mental health if we use it to set impossible standards of living for ourselves."

    Revolutionary because of its heightened depiction of violence but stifled by traditional sexual ethics. As Bonnie slowly traces her hand up Clyde’s gun when he first reveals he’s serious about robbing people, there’s more on her mind than just the raunchy innuendo. Splendor in the Grass, another Warren Beatty-led movie set during the Great Depression, does a good job of exploring how women were expected to be submissive and demure at this time. If you couple that idea with Bonnie’s…

    Honestly not as perverse as the description might imply. Collins’s fantasies about Penny don’t go beyond chaste kissing on the forehead, giving the audience the impression he’s more transfixed with the idealistic lifestyle she represents than anything else. From his limited viewpoint, her world is made up of colorful parties and dreamlike photoshoots, a sharp contrast to his muted and stuffy apartment. As we learn from a beautifully illustrated transition slide, however, Penny isn’t immune to reality. She has to…

    A lot of bad stuff here, but I think the most insulting thing was the fact that they ended the movie with a set-up for a sequel

    Harvey Keitel recently gave an interview that I think explained a lot of my issues with this movie. He said that when he first received the script, it was ten pages long, a fact that frustrated him so much that he threw it in the trash can. Desperation drove him back to it, though, and he loved what he read when he finally flipped through it. I understand why: it contained just one scene, the one where the Lieutenant screams…
