Learning...

... from the best film-makers.


A while back, by a simple twist of fate, I watched two different movies spun around grown men that cross-dress. They’re from different eras, with very different premises and with very different styles. Also, they’ve both won their Oscars etc, and raked in sufficient box-office moolah. I enjoyed both movies myself, too.

But, from both movies, what I’ve learnt (since I make it a point to learn something everyday) includes some things that I didn’t know about womankind…

1. Women incessantly shave their legs, sometimes twice a day. It’s also the biggest feminine thing any man can do, evidently. Once you’ve shaved your legs, you’re in.

2. Women get pinched/hit-upon however butt-ugly they are, even if they are ugly as men.

There you go, there’s learning everywhere. Even from Sydney Pollack’s Tootsie (1982) and Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot (1959).
