The Hanging Garden

The Hanging Garden. After bailing on depressing gay movie #1 a few weeks ago, I decided to try and watch another film I’d heard great things about — and I’m glad I did. The family and locale of the movie were completely alien to me, but the feelings that William went through are pretty universal for all gay men — especially the thoughts of suicide. I’d love to buy a copy of this film, but it isn’t available on DVD (and I’ve just decided to no longer purchase VHS tapes).

This movie is my complete and absolute favorite. Each time I see it I’m either leaking about the eyes, trying to calm my wildly beating heart, or frantically searching for a medium to capture my thoughts.

If you’re a fan of celtic music, the soundtrack is a must have, I totally and completely enjoyed it. Someone stole it tho… doh.

It’s a great great great great great movie. 🙂

I also watched a preview copy of that new homoflick with dean cain and the dad from frasier in it. It was pretty good, although I’m getting good at categorizing gay flix. They can either be filed into “Boo-hoo, I’m gay”, “Boo-hoo, I’m gay and single”, “Boo-hoo, I’m gay, and dying”. (Okay that was a bit mean, but you get the picture). This was a “Boo-hoo, I’m gay and single” flick…but entertaining, and a somewhat quasi-romantic end. If I could remember the name, I’d reccomend it.

Geez. That was a rather big commentary for my first commentary here, wasn’t it? 🙂

Sheldon, you’re thinking of The Lonely Hearts Club.

that’s the one.
(argh, I hate commentary systems that strip line breaks. Doh. That last rambling post of mine made much more sense when you saw it with line breaks :).

I’ve got you covered, Sheldon. I added the line breaks for you.
