Gary Sinise: That Championship Season

Gary Sinise in his passionate prime, displaying the Steppenwolf fire and anguish he had before his acting was neutered on "CSI":

Re: Gary Sinise: That Championship Season

Nice, but I wish there were fewer "drunk cry" scenes. It's as if they're saying men have to be "impaired" in some way before they can let their emotions out freely. I suspect the reason for this is because TV and movies are run by men, and men are VERY uncomfortable with crying, especially other men's crying.

Re: Gary Sinise: That Championship Season

I don't even know this was written as a "crying" scene (from the 1972 play).  In the 1982 version, Martin Sheen, in the same role, is much more subdued and doesn't cry at all (starts at 2 minutes):

Re: Gary Sinise: That Championship Season

They all cry in this one and D'Onofrio really sobs without looking all that drunk ..I think it's a well put movie for crying scenes..

Re: Gary Sinise: That Championship Season

Are they supposed to all be drunk?

Lemme tell ya, I Do Not Understand why anyone would cry about sports, or why toxic masculinity says that one of the few acceptable reasons for a man to cry is over sports. (Men can cry about whatever makes them cry, and that's legit, but toxic masculinity picked weird when it decided men crying about sports was acceptable but talking about their feelings was not.)

Also, this movie/play seems like an unpleasant, uninteresting story where everything just kinda lowkey sucks. But D'Onofrio's crying was sweet.

The more I read you the more I agree, I am with you on this one, to be honest I have never cried because of sports, it doesn't make any sense.
