    I’ve seen it this past Friday. To say that the guy
    is overstepping bounds would be a gross understatement.
    It’s hard to understand which ideology he was trying to
    subvert, I don’t think he knows himself.

    well, if you haven’t seen it then i don’t think you’ve any right to call him a twat or homophobic, do you?

    I have seen only clips of the movie and found them hilarious!

    Wasn’t really sure what to make of this film.

    I can see why certain gay anti-defamation groups have a problem with it, in some ways it reminds me of the situation with Julian Clary – a brilliant lampooning of gay culture and homophobia for those with ears to hear and understand. But for the masses, or those who sleepwalk through life, well, it could quite possibly set the movement back years. It’s hard to say.

    Saying that, there were a few laugh out loud moments, much of it was too uncomfortable viewing for my liking, though I assume that’s meant to be the point.

    sasha was brilliant!
    i love how he gets the ‘Best’ out of incredible ignorant
    people, who are in total chaos if things don’t go according to plan.
    everybody has expectations and presumptions, but the
    shocking part in the movie are the reactions and response
    ‘Bruno’ gets. it displays that search for happiness is
    not always easy, not only is it tricky to know or find
    what makes u happy, but mostly the denied acceptance
    of people around you. bruno found his happiness, at the
    cost of acceptance and respect.
    i found mine too, but at the cost of support and respect
    from my family.
    ..and besides, ‘bruno’ is supposed to be over the top.
    thats the whole point.
    and on that note – be nice to each other!

    Well I thought some of the film was quite staged, but while some of it didn’t work some of it was brilliant.
    Watching it as a gay man it scared me a bit to see how much Homophobia is still out there.

    I didn’t think the film was homophobic at all. For me it was mocking Homophobia, showing how silly it is.
