Art_Deco saidI've seen the entire movie. Yes, they do kiss, as the one guy is dying.
I don't think it's a gay thing, nor was it viewed as such by audiences at the time. It was a human thing. I read nothing gay into it.
love is love
Yes, but not necessarily gay love in that movie scene. I wouldn't read too much into it.
Having someone die right in front of you brings very strong emotions, as I've had to experience more times than I'd like to remember, including in military uniform. Until you've been there I don't think anyone can fully comprehend, which is the power of that movie scene.
It has nothing to do with gay. It has everything do with humanity. Is that so difficult to understand?
