    I just watched this. It's definately one of the coolest movies I've seen. Watch it if you haven't already.

    It is a good flick.

    My dad and I were actually discussing the movie a couple of weeks ago. We were analyzing William Dafoe's character, a gay FBI agent. We laughed that his character is a "man's fag". While a "man's man" is a tough, gritty, guy with hard emotions, a "man's fag" would be a tough, gritty, gay man.

    What made William Dafoe a "man's fag"? Two examples:

    Willem Dafoe in bed with a partner:
    -William Dafoe: "what are you doing?"
    -Sexual partner: "cuddling"
    -Dafoe: "cuddling? You fag."

    William Defoe at a gay bar:
    -Bartender: "I think you've had enough"
    -Dafoe: "Just pour me the drink you fairy fag"

    It's a good one. We had a Q&A at a local theater with the director a few weeks back, it was pretty good. Apparently, it really got reamed by the MPAA because it was submitted for rating right after Columbine, so they made them cut out almost all blood and a lot of violence.
