The Laramie Project
The Laramie Project
Director: Moises Kaufman

I have never heard of The Laramie Project before. I only found out about it a couple of days ago when they showed the preview on HBO. I love films like that. Films that almost seem like a documentary but are actually films. I can't say too much about how it was made since it appears to be a documentary based on a play about it. How can it go wrong, right? All the time I was watching this, however, all I kept thinking was that this was so similar to an earlier movie called And The Band Played On. This is one of the movies where it's more important to know the issue than to criticize the technical aspects of the movie. This is one of the movies that seek to inspire people to be more aware and speak up when they notice something's not right.

I love people and why people kill people is something I truly cannot understand even when they have explained their motives. And in this case, Matthew Shepard was killed because he was gay and because his murdered thought Shepard was going to make a pass at him. Even if this particular incident didn't exactly happen, it does happen in real life. And if we don't speak up, then this will continue to happen everyday.
