Movie Reviews

Certainly no "Farewell My Concubine"
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 08/02/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This movie moves incredibly slow. For example, instead of showing one second of pool and then going into dialogue between the pool players, they show a whole game of pool with no dialogue besides "Good move!" At one point, they film the outside of a bathroom for an entire minute: no dialogue, no actors, nothing. The thing to which Western gay male and lesbian viewers may relate is the heterosexism and compulsory heterosexuality. Straight characters frequently ask the gay main character if he has a girlfriend without once thinking that maybe he doesn't want one. They try to matchmake him with women, as if all men are attracted to women. I just cannot imagine anybody besides Sinologists enjoying this film."
