miracle of rose is a movie?
It's not as beautiful as Miracle of the Rose but it's pretty great. I wish Genet had directed more.
Just purely amazing! Strangely erotic and sensually hypnotic, this film condenses and distills the power of the image. Montage and mise-en-scene are intertwined like the naked male bodies in the movie.
terribly drawn to the music of this film, i did some research and other sources say it's not Gavin Bryars, but Simon Fisher Turner. i looked up the track and it is what i heard on the film... Turner also did music for Jarman films. thus I think Bryars is an error! either way, this is as brilliant and accessible as experimental queer cinema gets. genius.
Bryars did a soundtrack for a rerelease of the film in the 1970s. Those prints and that soundtrack must be out there somewhere, though I've never been able to find it/them. When it was first shown, it was shown silent with no music at all. The excellent SFT soundtrack was added for the fairly recent DVD release.
