As fascinating as it is darkly disturbing

"You want your mother to lock you up again, is that it? Is that what you want? Then why don't you just admit your a dyke?"

Based on actual events, the critically-acclaimed Boys Don't Cry tells the heartbreaking true story of a young woman suffering from a "sexual identity crisis". 20-year-old Teena Brandon (Swank) does not perceive herself as a woman. She sexually desires other fema... read more

Very depressing film with tragic conclusion...

This film totally blew me away. This is one of the single most powerful films that have ever been made. There are a lot of powerful films that I love but there aren't that many which I could probably watch over and over again. I am glad to say that this is one of them that I could. I knew I needed to have a clear mind of what to expect with this film but it was too horrific to not like. This was a... read more

Description: When Brandon Teena, a young man with an infectious, aw-shucks grin and an angelic face that's all angles, wanders into Falls City, Nebraska, he takes to the town like it's a second skin. In little time he's fallen in with a gang of goofy if temperamental redneck boys, found himself a girlfriend, and befriended enough people to form so ... (more)

Depressing.

“Probably one of the most depressing movies i have ever seen, too bad it was based on a true story, otherwise i wouldn't put myself in that position if it weren't true.

And the fact that it's a depressing movie not only because it have a sad ending like most movies, it's a sad tale from start to finish, the events never picks up to be playful and funny, it's just sad.

It's a tale of Teena Brandon, a lesbian girl who decide to get a boy hair cut, stuff her jeans with a pair of socks and compress her breast against her body so she can look like a boy, she decide to reverse her name to Brandon Teena and go out to bars and meet girls, she's also a felon, she's involved in grand theft auto and have a big court date waiting, she stays with her friend in his house and hoping to” read more

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: January (55 movies items)

"January 24 "I hate my life." "I hate your life, too." First of all I think Hillary Swank nailed the role very well. I also loved what it had to say and I'm also surprised that this was based on a true story. Although I already knew how the movie ended, (I blame the Nostalgia Critic.) it happened when I least expected it and I love it when movies are able to do that. "
