A Kiss is Just a Kiss....

8 posts in this topic

What I really liked about it, other than the fact that it's so unforced and isn't "set up" by a lot of tense atmospherics, is that there's that nice little coda of Murray's contented smile afterward as he's photographed with his head resting on Peter's shoulder. Beautifully done. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem as though it really welcomed in an age of naturalistic same-sex kissing in mainstream films, since this is the one we still point to all these years later.
