The progression of film characters can be described as a fast evolution. As we saw on Wednesday, By Hook or By Crook contained characters with who seemed unencumbered by their sexuality.to contrast this, Devine was murdered in the end of the film becuse of her sexuality. As we saw increases in the quality of the plot and the narritive, we see increases in the quality of character development. However, there were aspects of previous films that ii enjoyed, such as almost any scene in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, excluding the depiction of Aboriginal people. I think the most interesting pbservation that i have made comes from Devine. The redefinition of something that i thought an at least semi-concrete definition, sexual pleasure, was completely changed after that film. Even though i consider myself an open person, opening up to what is considered deviant by anyone of the people in our class, was my biggest step. Bringing what i have learned about general acceptance and equality out into the world is the most exciting bit for me. I have enjoyed this course. Lastly, the next step for a Queer filmmaker is to break into new definitions of sexuality. There is an untapped market, and coming form someone who thought relations between Divine and herself were the weirdest thing ive seen, i bet people would listen to a film that redefined things for them .
