Neither Disturbing Nor Powerful. Just More Left Agenda Propaganda

The Plot. Female-born Teena Brandon adopts his male identity of Brandon Teena and attempts to find himself and love in Nebraska.

First of all, I'm betting half the good reviews here are phony. So many iuse the same words like "powerful" and "disturbing."

The movie is nothing more than an early left wind propaganda piece like The Crying Game and so many pothers. You're supposed to think it's so great because you are expected to embrace the left wing propaganda and march in step.

It's rather insulting and not worth your time.

It's a lie!

This movie is very very very good. It's a wonderful film. But is NOT the real story of what happened to Brandon Teena.

Director Kimberly Pierce did not care about Brandon's story. All she cared about was making money. So she turned Brandon's story into a Romeo & Juliet story when that was not true. Lana was right. It is a second murder of Brandon.

People need to understand Brandon's life was not a tragic love story. It was a tragic life period. Lana was not his soulmate. She was not his true love. She only knew him for two weeks. And she betrayed him. She set him up to be raped. And she was not there the night he was murdered. Lana is Just as guilty as the murderers.

Again, all Pierce cared about was making the bucks. She should've told the REAL story. The real truth.

Rest in peace

Sorry, but this review is going to be a little haphazard. It also might contain a couple of spoilers!

Its been a while since I've seen this movie. Today is December 4, 2017, I just watched the two hour documentary on YouTube from 1998. I am crying as I write this as it brings back memories of seeing the film in 1999. I feel such a connection to Brandon Teena, I am gay as well, except I was born a boy...when he was not...but he should have been.

The Police officers involved needed to be punished and tried as well. The officer who interviewed Brandon should be in jail for murder for not arresting John and Tom for raping Brandon. And for the way he conducted the interview. If you haven't seen the real interview, it will probably blow your mind in disgust.

There are a few positive things that came out of this tragedy. It brought much needed attention to gay rights, gay bashing, and transgender rights.

I just read a couple of other reviews on here. I can see things haven't really changed that much from 1993 when this story took place. Sad. May God have mercy on your souls for such hate.

If you haven't seen the movie, stop what you are doing and go watch it. It is a MUST SEE for any decent human being.

You will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN BRANDON TEENA, your legacy will live on forever. Rest in peace friend.
