Why can’t men just talk about their feelings? Two movies look at wonderful and terrible consequences of the unspoken. First up, everyone’s favorite Brokeback Mountain was a landmark film for American cinema. The lesser cited parts of Brokeback Mountain that fucking rock. What reads differently in this movie today. Brokeback Mountain as an example of real positive change in the fight for equality. Some men can discuss their feelings, but only if they’re also having sex sex. And now, for something different. A controversial film explains a very real criminal act. The Death of Dick Long is a story from another planet, but it really did happen here. At the heart of the conflict? Still some men not talking about what’s going on. Some taboos should never be eradicated – but should they remain taboos? A light film about a heavy story about a light headline. Or maybe it’s all dark. Why does this happen in small towns?
