Free read ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Vito Russo The Celluloid Closet Homosexuality in the Movies Summary ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Vito Russo ´ 8 Read Traced a history not only of how gay men and lesbians had been erased or demonized in movies but in all of American culture as well Chronicling the depictions of gay people such as the sissy roles of Edward Everett Horton and Franklin Pangborn in 1930s comedies or predatory lesbians in 1950s dramas see Lauren Bacall in Young Man with a Horn and Barbara Stanwyck. Albeit a dated book it s a very informative look at the portrayal of homosexuality on film and the extent of which it has been previously caged Despite flaws I never lost interest it was for me the first glimpse into the transformation of film and how far it has come in the past century or two It also introduced me to a number of new movies I watched and enjoyed and for that I am eternally grateful also the 1995 documentary The Celluloid Closet by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman is a compelling watch too The likes of Susan Sarandon Tom Hanks and Whoopi Goldberg cameo to talk about roles they ve took eg Tom Hanks in Philadelphia and Whoopi in The Color Purple accompanied by their own opinions as to how perceptions have shifted in society as well as the journey of both acceptance and intolerance of same sex affection with regards to filmmaking I enjoyed it than the book but Tom Hanks face likely swayed my opinion

Free read ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Vito Russo The Celluloid Closet Homosexuality in the Movies Summary ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Vito Russo ´ 8 Read When Vito Russo published the first edition of The Celluloid Closet in 1981 there was little uestion that it was a groundbreaking book Today it is still one of the most informative and provocative books written about gay people and popular culture By examining the images of homosexuality and gender variance in Hollywood films from the 1920s to the present Russo. i remember being much much younger getting this shivery gleeful zing of recognition from characters or conversations or shots that felt like they were saying to me than to anyone else i remember how closely i followed that feeling that subtextual insubstantial intuitive want the sense of affinity built out of suggestion hope held together by spit i remember how little they had to offer how much i made of crumbs yet how much alive interesting those possible moments of homoeroticism those ambiguously gendered ambiguously sexual figures felt than the characters i was told were like me the plotlines that were meant to follow what it was like to be like me in a lot of ways i think the arc of this book from the playful dropped hairpins of the thirties forties to the murderous murdered gay characters of the sixties seventies follows the emotional arc of my growing up looking fr my self starting w curiosity feeling out what isn t said or shown or named coming up against alienation and hurt as you are increasingly named distorted w each naming ending in frustration exhaustion need feeling alone unseen silenced even as yr told yr face is staring back at you from the screen it s than that it s a valuable primer on gay cinema film history and a piece of gay history in its own right but it was the tone that felt v familiar to me the growing sense of disbelief anger i can t speak to the accuracy or fairness of russo s individual judgments or to what has changed in the intervening years i only really have a fleeting interest in most of the films russo discusses but i can absolutely say that i m glad to have made space fr this book in my brain it adds texture context to smth that i experienced belatedly alone it explains shares in an anger that i felt expressed alone it reminds me of who i was at sixteen how i made sense of myself and the world
