"woodruff matthew. mcconaughey" Discussed on Is It Transphobic Podcast

"It, it was the thing that really drew this friend of mine into the character and into the world of this film and as much as. We are going to talk about a lot of the specifics now having watched it. I respect that opinion. Even though I did not get the same thing from this movie. At least from from Rayon and that's really mean I also did not grow up like I grew up as a child during the AIDS crisis I did not know a lot going on but at the same time. The movie in my opinion the movie itself. Didn't do a great job with ray on. But I really dug the way that they dealt with. Woodruff Matthew. mcconaughey character in the first act. Yeah To to. Put My cards on the table for we continue. To very specific misconceptions or like nervous conceptions but two very specific things that we're going to my mind when I started watching the movie. Deborah really softened a lot of it for me, which was one. The last movie that I've seen that was in relation to the AIDS crisis was the film adaptation of Rent. which was the worst movie that's life. I it's just. Sorry And the others conception is that I didn't realize that it was made in twenty thirteen I thought like watching it. It felt like it was like an early two thousands movie in house can be like well. Okay like Even. The Straits don't really get chanced stuff I. It was like a good attempts to try to like bring more color to the table metaphorically speaking. But it's a twenty thirteen. I don't know like. I mean at times article didn't come out yet. It's just it's just weirder and it's also like. That film strikes very early two thousands and I'm not like sinophile so I could be completely dead wrong on this, but it just felt. Like You know way older movie than it actually ended up being. So. And that. Up Sorry and then I guess the third conception. Sorry. The secret third one was that I actually was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because as soon as I found out that it was like historical like a history piece because runway was a real person. As like, Oh, well then you know if they had to deal with a real life trans person like they're they're dead in the water like you know they're not going to handle that well. But no round is is a real. She was made for the movie. So cool. Great. Love that for us. So. Yeah. I wonder because Silas one of the things that you had mentioned that you had focused on when talking about the movie was a lot more of a real life historical things that were going on and about the real life of what was happening. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yes so Aside, from knowing about, you know sort of the kerfluffle about jared leto playing the part and hearing a little bit about that when the movie came out the other thing that I really had a bee in my bonnet about is the fact that Ron Woodruff was not straight. And he did talk about long clearly had some stuff but. They just. Changed him to be straight and altered his character quite a bit and watching it. It's so clear to me that they were like, how do we make this the straight male hero anti hero type that the straight people will come see the movie for? And so that to me like before, we even get to any issues of transphobia homophobia of that in the Bi phobia that really just made me now it becomes this sort of like. The straight guy in the hero of a crisis that you know certainly straight people and all people belong to this lots of. It was but it was primarily focused on the queer. Community. And sort of start off before you even have a chance to give the film the benefit of the doubt with that erasure just really for me. Through me completely out of it it was I wasn't able to come to the film really with. A kind of the I at that point. It's not the kind of like trope that I enjoy ever and like it wasn't even like making him straight like they said that he was like a real cowboy like he's portrayed in attitude you know like the cursing and the sort of like fly by night in all the sort of you know traveling to other places. And the smuggling and stuff but in in sort of his portrayal, like he didn't dress that way in sort of the ten gallon hats in the Rodeo look like he was sort of looked like a buttoned up accountant said, and so there were a lot of. That I was looking at it and I was like I could see the strengths you know the sort of like, how do we make this movie? For Straight people for Oscar. Bait. And all of that Eminem we'll get into it as we go and we start to to break it apart. But everything about it just screams the sort of conniving you know taking away of the story. From who had access To Yeah. I will say it absolutely because that I did not have that knowledge going in and so a lot of my criticism of the film and keep in keep in mind like the film because they have made the choice to do this. is still like all the criticism I have is absolutely still applicable at the exact same time. It's like, Oh, a lot of my like, why is this straight dude? The one that's like saving everybody why is this happening what I'm so glad this is straight dude lived but at the same time like Oh if in real life, this guy was even if he was like. By and like on the down low are however, it needed to be like as even if he was just like a part of it, I would have felt a lot better about it like there was a point where they mentioned like Oh there was a bunch of and I'm not gonNA swear I'm not going to necessarily use slurs on here but like I'll just say like like a bunch of the F slur in New York were doing this. So I decided to do it myself. And it's just like I'd much rather hear about these queer folks in New York who have figured out. Yes. Whole System. that. Sounded fascinating and I can't remember the name of it is. But. Yeah and even like this desire to show us some morally grey character and they went with the the most obvious simple trope of like guy who is homophobic and really racist and they don't address that at all. He just drops a bunch of like super racist slurs and just move on from there and but now he's become sort of like this anti hero whose like helping the Queer community and people who have AIDS and like anti-establishment but like a really basic sort of almost. Completely unknown nuanced way. In sort of like now, he's like morally gray instead of what would actually be interesting is to watch someone who is part of the community but maybe conflicted about it someone who in real life you know there were all those buyers clubs in I believe it was the Dallas Club in the Fort Lauderdale Club were like the pirate cowboy clubs and everybody else was like you are you going too far for us? And the complex of actually everybody trying to tackle this problem in taking these risks because they had to. That is a fascinating story and the the struggle of trying to help each other and even the point of this Some of the other activists I was reading of the time are really upset about the way that the FDA was portrayed in this film. And actually that we're talking about this idea that. There were so many good people in the FDA who were working with them, who listen to them, who made changes with them, and they none none of what they were able to accomplish with without those people who were really upset that you know they were sort of painted as these kind of like you know the government, it's almost like it almost becomes like an anti vaccine story instead of like a story about the complexities of this struggle as intersection with like the conservativism, it's the FDA and Queer Phobia and all these ideas. It just becomes sort of like government doctors bad. Racist Cowboy Man. Good. But also so he treats everyone around him terribly and we just kind of go with it. I. Mean You bring up a lot of really interesting. Things that I've. I've I've been quietly ruminating on and. I mean I have my notes. Like pronounced only know that I really made is that like doubtfire club feels like angels in America for straight people like I can see that like kind of like You know it felt very like. Like like. Pointed to be like well, you know we can't make big money off of like a story about the gays. So like what if you know? We made it about..
