aron_kristina: Garbo being fab! (Default)
I watched Howl's Moving Castle, and as I watched I realized that while I've seen the entire movie, more or less, I've never actually seen it in order. I must have watched it a my parents, when they had movie channels, and just went in and out of it. It makes more sense in the proper order. And of course after reading a synopsis of the book...

So, Martin Freeman won a BAFTA. Good for him and all that. Just, this interview rubs me wrong in some way. "Gayest story in the history of television". What does that even mean? Apart from John's sister and her wife (or ex-wife), no one is actually named as gay in the series. Is it just because it's two men who have a close friendship? That's gay? More gay than Torchwood? More gay than Queer as Folk? More gay than L-word? My respect for Freeman jus went down. Way down. I don't get why close friendships always get sexualized, or joked about. I feel like we should have gotten further, but apparently not.

So if anyone has some light to shed on this I'd be happy.
