What if?

Since the first time, the light hit the celluloid, movies, and movie characters have influenced, accompanied, and inspired us. Many of them became icons in the queer eye since the role or the actor was gay, or the gay community could identify with the struggle they had to endure in the course of the story. In many cases, we fought their battles imaginary with them.

In “What If?” we finally achieved the impossible. We united what belongs together, in our opinion, of course. To fully comprehend the depth of the two worlds colliding in each of the oil paintings, you need to see these cinema masterpieces.

CONTACT 1997
Ellie: “Do you think there are people on other planets?”
Father: “I don’t know. But if it’s just us, it would be an awful waste of space.”

Devastated by the loss of her parents at the age of 8, Ellie yearns for contact with extraterrestrials but shies away from contact with anyone on earth. Ellie Arroway (Jodie Foster) grows up to become a brilliant astrophysicist who sticks to her convictions and devotes her life and scientific career to scanning the cosmos for signs of life. Despite how many believe her ideas to be the product of an unhinged mind. Dr. Arroway, after years of searching, finds conclusive radio proof of extraterrestrial intelligence. The movie is about Ellie’s search, which is, unfortunately, not over after she makes the groundbreaking discovery.

THE EXORCIST 1973
Father Damien Karras: “How long are you going to stay in Regan?”
The Demon (out of Regan MacNeil): “Until she rots in earth.”

When young Regan (Linda Blair) starts acting odd — levitating, speaking in tongues — her worried mother (Ellen Burstyn) seeks medical help. A local priest (Jason Miller), however, thinks the Demon may seize the girl. Hopelessness and despair start to take over since the Evil is a powerful entity that twists and turns the world and belives everybody involved. The priest requests to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert (Max von Sydow) to help with the difficult job.

MISERY 1990
Annie Wilkes: “Don’t even think about anybody coming for you. Not the doctors, not your agent, not your family. ‘Cause I never called them. Nobody knows you’re here. And you better hope nothing happens to me. Because if I die… you die.”

After a severe car crash, novelist Paul Sheldon (James Caan) is rescued by former nurse Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates), who claims to be his biggest fan. Annie brings him to her remote cabin to recover, where her obsession takes a dark turn. As Sheldon devises plans for escape, Annie grows increasingly controlling, even violent. One night after she finds out that he left his room in her absence, she breaks his legs with a hammer. In the following weeks, she forces the author to shape his writing to suit her twisted fantasies.
