I didn't watch this, Podd did. Controversial at the time as two actors pretend to be cowboys who enjoy a spot of the ol' bumming. Gosh, how very boundary pushing.
I dunno, chuck many millions at a production, hire two young, cinegenic actors to look emotionally conflicted and explore a side of sexuality that both confuses and comforts them, and the world weeps in support as they hand over the Oscars.
However, dress up in a gimp suit and throw DVD copies of 'Leathery Fist Pluggers' at people on a commuter train and you get a furious Daily Mail piece.
It's one rule for them... Etc.
6/10 (According to Podd)
