Ben-Hur (1959)


I knew Ben-Hur had a gay subtext going into it, but Jesus Christ I had no idea it was be this flamingly homoerotic. I suppose something had to be included to make the damn thing more entertaining; outside of the rightfully famous chariot race and a few other scenes of impressive scale and spectacle, the film is mostly a 3-and-a-half-hour dirge which could have been half the length it was if Charlton Heston didn’t spend 10 seconds grunting and staring intensely at other characters before and after every single line. 39 more words

The Last Hard Men Review

Every great western needs a great title. Something bold and solid. A title can that stand alone, and stand out. It speaks for itself. It tells you what the film is about, yet never spoils a single scene. 611 more words
