comment Why did the Great Gasby (2013) movie erase the hints of Nick Carraway's homosexuality?
I don't want this to be a discussion or discourage you from posting on this site. This is a unique and interesting perspective however you are using an opinion to base this question on and demanding to know why the director didn't pickup on what you did. If you were to instead discuss the subtleties of this movie versus the book and ask if the director missed an opportunity by not exploring this then you would have a question with some merit. It would still be opinion based and a discussion but it would be more inline with this site and the questions on it.

@georgechalhoub Ok now I am downvoting because even the paper you reference states it's an opinion and that "it seems strange that homosexuality is not addressed in The Great Gatsby" unless we read something into a literary work that may or may not be there. The "gay scenario" as you describe it doesn't come off as a homosexual encounter or allusion to me and I don't believe the majority of people read it that way. If you're familiar with early 20th century writers they are all retrospectively considered homosexual except maybe Hemingway. This is an opinion that you are stating as fact.

I'm not going to downvote, but you're asking a question about why a director made choices based off of what information exactly? You do give examples that do show the potential for Nick be homosexual but unless there is something by F. Scott to back it up or if it's a well known theory discussed in college literary classes then I don't see how there can be expectations for a director to pick up on these clues that the majority of people haven't.

comment What exactly does a director do in an animated feature?
Wow that article really explained it well thank you. In my head I couldn't see past casting and storyboard what a director could do once the animators started. After all as the article mentioned there is a stage where there can be no major changes and I guess I was thinking most of the process was like that since it can take months to draw or computer animate a scene. This really helped me to see how a director must be involved from the start and all the way through. I've wondered this for years so thank you.

@iandotkelly I don't see how that's possible though. I would try to explain better but I'm having trouble picturing what a director would do.

I've always thought of it as John Smith Optional said that it is a shared "legend" same as the Dread Pirate Scott from Princess Bride.

comment Why isn't James Bond a code name?
I don't really see this as a duplicate or even opinion based. The related question asks specifically in the movie why would James Bond use his real name. Although I wasn't aware that others had monikers that would be assumed as a title I thought that was the case just as I thought Bond was an identity passed on with assignment as 007. Out of universe though why continue to have each actor assume they are the same man from 1962 when the world has changed decades. It makes more sense for Bond to be a persona. "I knew a James Bond from the Cold War he always ordered his martinis a certain way"
