He was one of the famous gay actors.
As long as it evokes the right emotions out of you, that's when you'll realize that it's served its purpose.
Rope talks about two men who have found a connection through their love for killing and have developed a relationship that does not judge them for who they really are, no matter how immoral their lifestyle is seen to be. Sirk on the other hand, settled for the melodrama genre to express his homosexuality, giving the world great movies without them instantly being aware of his intent. For movie experts, the relationship between the horror genre and gay storylines shouldn't be at all surprising as these two share similar qualities. Freddy's revenge however plays on shocking more as you won't need to think hard to find the subtle gay undertones in this movie. As society has become a bit more tolerable compared to the past decades, we now have movies that portray gays in a more truthful situation.
Regardless of what your sexual orientation is, gay cinema is definitely worth studying because of the things it can teach society about the gay psyche. Let's start with the masters Jean Cocteau and Douglas Sirk, both who have managed to package their own respective gay storylines into acceptable movies of their time. It just goes to show that gay love stories have a more complex quality and can be much more beautiful than heterosexual love stories.
