aˆ?I thought it had been amusing, outside the lesbian content,aˆ? Turner mentioned. aˆ?I appreciated the relationship between two men.aˆ? She mentioned the undercurrent of aˆ?weird homo stuffaˆ? charging Holdenaˆ™s union together with repressed, bigoted, and seemingly closeted closest friend, Jason Leeaˆ™s Banky. aˆ?That sort of bromance hadnaˆ™t actually been invented but.aˆ?
But Turner also cautioned him: aˆ?Lesbians were gonna haaaate this movie. This is a female whoaˆ™s been a lesbian her very existence, and prevents getting a lesbian as with a person,aˆ? she mentioned. aˆ?Theyaˆ™re likely to crucify they.aˆ? So there happened to be enough who did.
After the movies was launched, but Turner claims the reception wasnaˆ™t as cutthroat as sheaˆ™d anticipated
aˆ?I became so wrong! Most lesbians I know actually liked the movie. I remember being ashamed, like i did sonaˆ™t learn personal neighborhood.aˆ? Queer women, definitely, commonly a monolith, just like any other-group; thereaˆ™s no huge homosexual opinion on Chasing Amy aˆ” or any other film, for example.
In aˆ?Glazing Amy,aˆ? Smith revealed the various moments which had some mad lesbian audience aˆ?up my personal ass about it movie.aˆ? However, the guy includes while in the commentary track, aˆ?Iaˆ™m kinda proud of my self aˆ¦ i acquired very near. They however appears like certainly some one whoaˆ™s maybe not a lesbian generated this motion picture, but aˆ¦ My debate is similar, aˆ?Hey, Iaˆ™m since gay as you! Iaˆ™m because gay while you for females.
