A Truly Beautiful Film See It If You Get The Chance!
The film is wonderfully sensate, alive and filled with exotic beauty and deep passions.
The colors, textures and sound have a dimensionality that draws the viewer right into the scene, the place the time... when it rains, the viewer can feel the rain, when the hero, Guy is being drowned in a dream, the viewer senses the suffocation...
The chemistry between Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver, as young lovers in exciting times, is breath-taking!
But Linda Hunt is the biggest gem in the movie, playing a little man named Billy Kwan. She is incredibly credible in this role. Few female actresses can believably pull-off playing a male character, but Hunt did it so well that, at first, the viewer feels a familiarity with the person playing Billy without realizing he is being played by a woman. When I realized it, I was totally amazed. Hunt is a great actress well-deserving of the Oscar she won for the portrayal.
The film is evocative and enthralling. And so alive, so utterly alive!
_The Year of Living Dangerously_ has and is everything a film should be.
The Brown Bunny (2003)
Just a Quick Comment About The Oral Gratification Scene...
There seems to be a question of how a similar movie would play if a male were to give a female oral sex on-screen...
Well, there is a little movie called _Hot Spot_, with Don Johnson, a movie which I loved, directed by Dennis Hopper (another "badboy" in the same vein as Gallo, older, perhaps, but very similar), btw... in which Johnson's character "Harry" gives oral pleasure to Virginia Madsden's character "Dolly."
When describing that movie, I like to tell people, that after that little scene there wasn't a dry seat in the house! In fact, I get a bit stirred up thinking about it even now...
As to _The Brown Bunny_ I can only hope that it comes to one of the two "art houses" in this very conservative neck of the woods where I live.
I've seen the trailers and fallen in love with the song "Milk and Honey" (heard in one of the trailers) ...all over again. And I definitely want to see this film in its entirety.
And with regard to the oral... well... as Zippy the Microcephallic always says: "A little head never hurt anybody!"
