Hong Kong Eclectic Movie Night - Aug 27 - Male prostitutes

A few of us were discussing a theme for this week and we started talking about how far we can push the acceptable themes.  After agreeing that slasher movies, blatant sex romps and several others were NOT acceptable, we came up with one that used to be verboten and is not too far over the edge: Male prostitutes.

This week we have 3 fantastic movies about or involving male prostitutes. 2 of them are relatively old, were very bold for the time and received great critical acclaim. The 3rd is a newer one with some actors that are now big stars.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Every Tuesday, we will meet downstairs at Hong Kong Brew House in Lan Kwai Fong to view a unique and interesting movie. We will meet around 7:00 pm, will vote on the movie to be watched at 7:20 pm and then get the movie started at 7:30 pm so we will have time to chat afterwards. 
There will be no admission charge but they have a full bar and good food so bring a few dollars to spend and support their business as they are hosting us for free. Jun, the Brew House manager, has offered us 10% off all food & beverages & will give us free peanuts. 

Any questions, please email [masked]

Cheers,

Bill

      Normally I would say “You need to show up to find out” but I'm felling charitable tonight. ;-)

      The choices were:
      Midnight Cowboy (Classic but crappy previews)
      My Own Private Idaho (Keanu and River as street hustlers)
      The Boys in the Band (Hetro guest attends Homosexual Party)

      The overwhelming choice was “Boys in the Band” and it turned out to be a very interesting period piece from 1970 when “those” movies just were not made.
