Eldredge has kept Ennio Morricone’s sublime music in his montage, which features kisses and embraces that would have given the aforementioned priest a coronary. Now, it’s worth noting that even without the direct input from sex-obsessed religious figures, the expressions of human sensuality and tenderness seen in the clip below (please scroll down) remain very much a taboo in the vast majority of mainstream movies.
Curiously, YouTube requires that you log in to watch this video clip, as it’s considered potentially inappropriate. (“This content may contain material flagged by YouTube’s user community that may be inappropriate for some users. To view this video please verify you are 18 or older by signing in or signing up.”) I’ve found no such warning when attempting to watch montages featuring heterosexual movie kisses.
Though posted after the release of Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain, Eldredge’s Gay Kiss Montage features no clips showing Heath Ledger kissing Jake Gyllenhaal. But you’ll find plenty of other (mostly) lesser-known kissing scenes. Here’s the list of films, as per Eldredge (I added the names of a few actors/directors):
Boys Briefs 1 or 2
Christina Cox, Karyn Dwyer in Anne Wheeler’s Better Than Chocolate
Boys briefs 1 or 2
Joey Lauren Adams and Carmen Llywelyn/Carmen Lee in Kevin Smith’s Chasing Amy
Angelo Bell’s Broken Hearts Club
Jennifer Westfeldt and Heather Juergensen in Charles Herman-Wurmfeld’s Kissing Jessica Stein
Scott Neal, Glen Berry in Hettie Macdonald’s Beautiful Thing
