Brokeback Mountain and Transamerica........
What can I say but these are the two movies I saw recently....though I only saw the latter while I was completely drunk and could've watched any movie...lucky enuf i watched this one cause at the end of it I was still totally completely drunk and I still can't say whether I liked it or not as I am CONFUSED.......and to top it all I am CONFUSED about Brokeback Mountain as well...though the most confusing thing about Brokeback was the Texan accent.....but you have to see it to believe what Ang Lee is capable of......he actually made me want to be gay......hey don't make a mistake @ calling me gay cause in the interval a girl from a group of seven commented....."wht is this guy doing alone here ...is he a GAY?" to which I simply turned around Schezwan Popcorn in one hand and a Diet Pepsi in other and said "No lady I am a pukka Lesbian" and believe me I have never seen a face change colors so quickly when all of her friends just bursted out laughing......they even stopped there ooooohhhhss when the next gay scene came..........
But now I can see why Crash won the best Oscar and why Brokeback didn’t...cause the latter is easiest to hate.......even gay population would hate this movie because of the way the character of "Heath Ledger" always ran away from accepting his destiny wanting to lead a normal life in turn screwing up his wife from behind.........though the realization did dawned on him at the end.........
Well Transamerica is a movie about a male to female transsexual who is about to go for a surgery to get a brand new Vagina but finds out that he has a 17 year old son who is in jail on charges of prostitution....whose aim in life is to go to LA and star in a gay porno flick....well the main story lies in the journey to LA when our transsexual offers his(or should I say her) kid a car ride to LA without disclosing her true identity.....it is a movie with a happy but a bit confusing ending as bith of them end up getting what they want from life......
Well if you are reading this for a review point of view I will say watch it on your own risk as both of these are hard hitting movies on shades of modern male sexuality and believe me they are watched more by women rather than males.......there was an article in TOI last week that said Bangalore men hate Brokeback........and I wanted to write Women of the world loved it....take example of the oohs and aahs coming from the group of girls in my back row of the theatre......

Brokeback ***1/2
Transamerica ***
