First of all – I know it’s Saturday, but I didn’t have this idea until this morning.
I’m in a queer cinema class right now and every Thursday we’re going to be watching a movie made between the early 90s and now. I’ve been thinking for ages of doing a weekly post where I discuss an older work of media, although to be honest my original thought was that it’d be something I thought was really great as a kid, and I revisit it to see how it holds up. But I think this is a good way to get started. This could transition into something else after the class ends.
So: this week we watched Brokeback Moutain, which I had seen years ago, edited for TV, when I thought I was straight, and I didn’t remember nearly as much as I thought I did.
