Yes, gayer than "Dreamgirls"

I saw "Top Gun" in 1986 when it came out (as it were), with a few friends, one of whom was gay (still is) and who said before the credits were over: "This is the gayest movie I've ever seen." Eight years later, in "Sleep With Me," Tony Scott fan Quentin Tarantino explained it all for us. In this YouTube clip (beware the f-word -- it's Tarantino talking), QT's exegesis is illustrated for the first time with actual clips from "Top Gun." And remember: This was years before "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
