“It might take a queer more than five minutes to make up his mind while watching this handsome lieutenant stroke his magnificent organ.” –
Reinaldo Arenas (Javier Bardem)
19 years ago, today (September 3) in Before Night Falls, Johnny also played Lieutenant Victor, a prison interrogator who can’t resist stroking himself as he stares a portrait of Fidel Castro.
Different from Bon-Bon, Johnny left the funny comedy scenes and becomes an extreme sadist character, representing how homosexuals used to be treated by guards at the
hellish jail of El Morro Prison during the 70′s.
Ps. Johnny’s “magnificent organ” was just a mixture of paper and pieces of cloth stuffed on his pants to make it bigger.
I wouldn’t be surprised if it was his idea.
