Movie Reviews

Insightful, depressing, revealing.
Jason Barker | Tampa, FL | 10/05/2005

"I was eager to see this DVD once I heard about it's existance, and it does not disapoint. As a gay male, I have, like many other gay males, been perplexed at the existance of Gay Republicans. This DVD does not dig as deep as it could, but its primary focus was not the why of Gay Republicans, but their reaction to the events of the 2004 election.

Denial is not a term I use lightly at all, and I have to say that some of the people interviewed in this documentary are in a deeper state of denial than anyone I have ever seen, and I state that without any hyperbole at all. Some of them are genuinely conflicted people, who believe in smaller government, less taxes, pro american foreign policy, etc. and oppose the moralizing monstrosity of the religious reich, sometimes on the grounds of these principles. They were torn up by their own party inciting anti gay hate to win votes. But others, such as the spiky haired california pseudo hipster, or the sanctimonius straight laced money grubber in Florida, are nothing but arrogant Bush zombies, and in many cases they come off as holding certain opinions more out of shock value and the desire to upset "liberals" than out of genuine conviction.

This documentary deserves a follow up that digs deeper in to why a gay person would be a member of the GOP."
Sensationalism over substance.

"While the four subjects were evenly split between two decent people and two obnoxious loudmouths, the latter got quite a bit more screen-time. Rather than honestly showing how "gay Republican" isn't an oxymoron, something Newman and May might have been able to do if given a chance, the filmmakers instead decided to show Harris and Bonamigo endlessly making total fools out of themselves. I guess they decided that two intelligent human beings calmly and somberly discussing how difficult it is to battle the theocrats who have hijacked their political party isn't as much fun as letting a couple of self-righteous morons reinforce all of the bigoted stereotypes most gays believe about their more conservative brethren."
