Thirty years on, it’s hard to appreciate how groundbreaking it was in the way it mixed its Nazi propaganda film-within-a-film with the tough-and-tender drama of the prisoners’ bond. But the bruised machismo of Raul Julia’s fellow prisoner Valentin Arregui registers more strongly against Hurt’s flamboyance with the passage of time. A landmark in queer cinema, as compassionate as it is daring.
