Travis's sex hangups in Taxi Driver were pure "putting oneself into their work" from the screenwriter

Anyway I haven't watched a movie in like a month and I have blu-rays of The Comfort of Strangers and Patty Hearst sitting right there *motions to coffee table*

I support inviting Paul to HPN so we can see who from the forum he will end up shipping with LCJ

In Easy Riders Raging Bulls (the book) he's a coked-up gun-toting self-consciously Dostoevskian lunatic

But there's also some...inneressing complicating info on the gay thing

Schrader was working hard and playing hard. He became very much a part of the gay party scene, which he had been flirting with since the Taxi Driver days in 1975. This was a kind of heady period, where for the first time in American culture, gay choices about music, clothes, design, were considered to be the future," says Rosenman, "This was the cutting edge, but it was so exciting and gorgeous and glamorous that everybody knew that it was leading toward an abyss. And that was attractive in and of itself. There was a mystic wildness about the partying, the music, the drugs, the clothes, the free sexuality--the interchange of partners, the constant fucking of boys, girls, it was so shocking and exhilarating. People like Schrader were attracted to it because they understood there was something religious in the intertwining of sex, death, and ecstasy."

Schrader's friends wondered how far Schrader went. Although it would be hard to imagine a less sympathetic audience than the gun-crazed Milius, Schrader used to lecture his friend on the importance of the gay aesthetic. "The arbiters of taste in our society are gay. Most of my friends are gay."

"Well, Paul, are you gay?"

"I can't do it, I can't even succeed here."

Says Milius, Schrader was this character who had fallen from his Calvinist grace, and was really enjoying his time in Hell, sampling every part of it. He loved perversion, but all sexuality in some way was a failure for him. "One night when he was making Hardcore, I noticed his wrists were marked. He explained, 'I went to Mistress Vicky and she hung me up and cuffed me. I could only take it for three minutes.' Like he wasn't a true pervert. He couldn't take it for a half an hour like a real-man pervert. The same thing with being gay, he failed at that too, couldn't get it up for boys."

he did include the part from confessions of a mask about masturbating to the painting of saint sebastian which seems like the most Him type way to engage with homosexuality, to the point if i wondered if he saw an element of himself in it.

Do you think it would make things smoother if when bouncers bounced people they sent them to a nearby inflatable bouncy castle. I think that would help smooth out the transaction.

A24 def asked him to.shut the fuck up during the awards cycle for First Reformed and then tried to meme it after the fact, thus proving they were even dumber than Schrader himself
