Review for Boys Don't Cry

Author: Asa_movies

The atmosphere completely different from that nowadays. This was probably the first time for man to express his own feelings and sexual identity in public. So, it was something like a Big Bang for people who experienced fact that some of their kith are "such a weirdos". If you compare understanding of people today and only about 2 decades ago you can see that struggle for freedom and equality always exists, but they're a bit different. I may say the sexual revolution has just started and, if you compare some movie from 2000th, 2020th and (probably) 2040th, you will see people are starting to be more aware of changing in global sexual situation and, what is more important, it won't be taboo topic in the future. Kimberly Pierce made Teena Brandon being born-girl, living-boy. Teena was a very brave person, worth living more than "boys from gangs" without any drop of emotion and understanding others, in themselves. Person is changing during his life. People are changing during universal time. This is part of so called evolution. Not necessary revolution! Be who you are :) .................................................................................................. THE BLUEST EYES IN TEXAS The lonesome Texas sun was setting low And in the rear view mirror I watched it go I can still see the wind in her golden hair I close my eyes for a moment, I'm still here The bluest eyes in Texas Are haunting me tonight Like the stars that fill The midnight sky Her memory fills my mind (Where did I go wrong) Did I wait too long Or can I make it right The bluest eyes in Texas Are haunting me tonight Another town, another hotel room Another dream that ended way too soon Left me lonely way before the dawn Searching for the strength to carry on The bluest eyes in Texas Are haunting me tonight Like the stars that fill The midnight sky Her memory fills my mind (Where did I go wrong) Did I wait too long Or can I make it right The bluest eyes in Texas Are haunting me tonight For every heart you break You pay a price But I can't forget the tears In her blue eyes The bluest eyes in Texas Are haunting me tonight Like the stars that fill The midnight sky Her memory fills my mind (Where did I go wrong) Did I wait too long How can I make it right The bluest eyes in Texas Are haunting me tonight The bluest eyes in Texas Are haunting me tonight .................................................................................................
