WATCH: Stunning Fictionalized Portrait of James Dean

Writer-director Matthew Mishory’s black-and-white biopic, A Portrait of James Dean: Joshua Tree, 1951, is an intimate fictional portrait of bisexual Hollywood hunk James Dean on the cusp of his big break. The uncannily handsome James Preston stars as the legendary ‘50s movie star whose sex appeal for both men and women was undeniable. Stylishly evoking the boundary-pushing sexuality of New Queer Cinema as it focuses on Dean’s experiences as a rising star in Los Angeles, the film’s surreal and dreamlike vignettes blend biographical and fictionalized elements to present pivotal moments in his short yet remarkable life.

      He wasn’t bi, he was straight up gay. Elizabeth Taylor has always cited him as such and he was confidante of hers.

      “surreal and dreamlike vignettes blend biographical and fictionalized elements to present pivotal moments in his short yet remarkable life.”

      aka, the shit’s a mess.

      the movie was pretty boring in style, script and acting. Kind of hot sex scene though. The actor playing Dean is pretty stunning, but really it doesn’t save it.

      I tried watching this a few weeks ago. I couldn’t get past 5 minutes. It was awful.

      Definitely my movie pick of the last year. Weird, fucked-up, and personal in the best way. The sex (and sexuality) is beside the point, boys.

      @balehead: You got proof or is this just something you don’t want to know?

      @Stache1: The movie doesn’t take a position on this. It’s beside the point. His impact was so much greater than sex.
