    @TheEscapedBalloon he didn't get upset until after his dad acted up.

    @lester5192 you don't know why he almost shot himself. maybe it some sort of childhood abuse that was bringing that out, not being in the closet. his dad didn't humiliate him, he tortured him too. so who knows? you may have see it, but you are looking at it from a narrow point of view.

    obviously this movie shows a man with a medical problem thus causing a mental disorder. thus like some people who believe they are born a reptile and get surgery to look like a lizard. some people also believe they are jesus and god too. people just wanna believe it's real cause it makes them feel open minded, cool, hip, free spirited, modern.

    Hung (2005)

    Living in a world that seems rife with phallic symbols, five lesbian friends take a teaspoon each of a concoction from Prague that will give them, for only one day, a penis. Next morning, the cock crows and the women seek men's experiences: they measure and compare, pee standing up, and look for women who'll sleep with them. At the end of the day, they gather to compare scores. It's a jungle out there.
