This is the point. If this was not a “gay” movie, if for some reason the two leads were some hetero couple in some “forbidden love” scenario with the rest of the movie the same, most would not like this. In fact, since the only reason most people saw this and “liked” this film was due to the fact that it showed two guys getting it on in such a real and graphic way and by doing so was being “brave”… guess what, exploitation flick. There is much better cinema out there that addresses homosexuality than this. And though well shot, pretty pictures does not make a good movie.
