How gay are my favorite movies?

Just how gay are my favorite movies? Haha

Nicholas & Alexandra Doctor Zhivago Lawrence of Arabia Gandhi Titanic My Fair Lady Becket The English Patient

Classy or pretentious? Haha

I also like Theatre of Blood a lot!

Pretentious would be shoehorning in films by Tarkovsky, Bergman, Kurosawa, etc. Your taste is Hollywood blockbusters of yesteryear that fraus love.

[quote] Nicholas & Alexandra

It's supergay! The whole movie is just basically the four grand duchesses constantly scissoring or muff-diving each other, while their parents and brother and Rasputin watch.

I enjoy those films because they are better made. Better acted, better direction, better shots, etc

Sam Spiegel is an underrated filmmaking legend!

Rasputin is played by Tom Baker, who a few years later went on to play the definitive version of 'Doctor Who'.

R4 Better than what?

Not gay. Gay is Mommie Dearest and All About Eve or Written on the Wind or shit like that.

OP, were you worried that the use of commas would be considered classy or pretentious?

by Anonymousreply 807/31/2020

Gay would be something like the classic Plein Soleil starring dreamy Alain Delon.

I saw N & A about 20 times in the theater. Years later I was in London in a movie bookstore. I started talking to a guy who worked for Spiegel. When I told him about my love for N & A, he literally shuddered. “That dog!” They we’re hoping that Michael Jayston was going to be the next Peter O’Toole and Janet Suzman would become a film star to match her theatrical renown.

I never thought of it as “gay,” as such, but its incredible artifice, sumptuous costumes, and royalty-centric story (and that tragic end for them all) was catnip for me as a gayling. Only now do I recognize it’s absurd campiness.

I’m sorry for the comma less text. It typed out like a list and then posted in paragraph form.

R11 it might be campy, but Laurence Olivier and Michael Redgrave give badass small performances.

I’m only 23 lol

OP thinks that quality is determined by running time.

My pussy stinks!

I don't think any of them are particularly gay. You apparently aren't afraid to commit several hours to allow a story to be told.

R11, Michael Jayston has gone on to become a successful British character actor, but it's true that he didn't have a big career in the U.S. Janet Suzman did receive an Oscar nomination and was made a Dame, but she didn't go on to have a Hollywood career, either.

Tom Baker received a Golden Globe nomination for Rasputin, but as I mentioned above, went on to become famous for 'Doctor Who'.

I have asked for one autograph in my life, and Dame Janet was kind enough to send me one. 25 years later I had some workmen in the house and one of them stole it thinking that it might be worth some thing.

The shortest film on OP's list is 148 min long! He sure likes 'em long.
