What married-with-kids A-list movie star has his faithful assistant help him find dates with men on a gay s*x website that caters to guys who like Latino and African- American gangster-types? The actor, who has long been rumored to swing both ways, has a k*nky penchant for prison thugs!
In the year 1995, Leonardo Dicaprio and David Thewlis starred in the independent drama Total Eclipse. I remember the first time I watched Total Eclipse on cable television. I was surprised that Leo took on this role because this was before he became a superstar. Although Total Eclipse didn’t get the praise or media attention like Brokeback Mountain I think Total Eclipse is the superior film. Total Eclipse is a love story about two French poets in the late nineteenth century France. Perhaps, the mainstream media wasn’t ready for such a powerful gay film back in 1995?
I am just not impressed with the gay scenes from the biopic J Edgar I feel the movie wasn’t gay enough. Let me know what you think? Do you think the J Edgar biopic was or wasn’t gay enough? I think the first scene when Armie Hammer’s character tells J Edgar he loves him is tender. However, I don’t like the fight scene I feel it is bit too pretentious. Where is the gay passion? There is only one gay kiss in the entire film. Where are the gay sex scenes? The audience needed to see J Edgar and Clyde in bed together. The movie suggests the love between J Edgar and Clyde is an unrequited love which I don’t believe.
One argument is, the movie is discussing Edgar’s sexual repression due to the time period. However, I find it hard to believe that J Edgar and Clyde did not have a homosexual relationship. Where is the gay sex? I think Hollywood is so homophobic that there is still a reticence to exploring the sexual aspect of male homosexuality.
When J Edgar Hoover died in 1972, he left his entire estate worth $3 million dollars to Clyde Tolson. In fact, when Clyde died in 1975 he was buried close to J Edgar’s grave. I think the screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and Clint Eastwood were afraid of upsetting the heterosexual audience due to marketing reasons. The facts are J Edgar Hoover was a crossdresser and a homosexual. J Edgar and Clyde did everything together they worked together, took vacations together, and Edgar even took photos of Clyde sleeping. It is ludicrous that the movie doesn’t explore the homosexuality enough. I think the movie needed to be more gay.
According to the website Deadline.com, actress Kerry Washington has agreed to star in Quentin Tarantino’s controversial slavery film Django Unchained. Django Unchained will be released in December 2012.
Kerry’s character Broomhilda, will be raped by white men multiple times in the film. According to the Django Unchained script, there are suggestions that Broomhilda is “in love” with a white male slave master.
Is this really possible? Could a white slave master really fall in love with his female slave? The black female slaves had no choice they either slept with the white male slave master or they were murdered. I don’t think it was “love” at all.
Also, some black women during slavery wanted their slave children to obtain freedom so they slept with the white master.
In fact, Broomhilda will also appear nude in many scenes in the movie. I understand that interracial sex did occur during slavery because white men owned their black female slaves. I am not disputing that white men raped black women during slavery or had mixed race offspring.
However, I am concerned about Kerry’s decision to appear nude in the film and being raped multiple times by white men. Is Django Unchained just Quentin Tarantino’s racist sexual fantasy to treat the black female body as a sexual fetish for white men? I wonder, because Tarantino has a history of depicting black women in his movies in very sexualized and stereotypical roles.
Does Kerry really think appearing in a degrading film will launch her career to the A list? I wonder if Kerry has thought it through? Why would Kerry want to take on such a degrading role? Isn’t Kerry cognizant of how Hollywood stereotypes black female sexuality as licentious?
I also wonder, is a slave movie the best role a young black actress can get in Hollywood?
