There are several scenes that distort the characters, leaving them half out of focus and giving off a general sense of grotesqueness. These scenes recall many of Bacon's paintings, and make the film very onteresting visually. The experimentalism of the film pays off and we end with a very personal and at times tender portrayal of the characters.
For my money, this is the most exquisite and moving queer film out there since Jean Genet's "Un Chant d'Amor" — it's something like the best gay arthouse flick that David Lynch or Peter Greenaway never made.
the camera effects were a little off-putting, but in a strangely good way. impressive cinematography! the V.O during some scenes generated a creepy atmosphere revealing portions of his dark nature, holding a mirror up to us. anyway, I felt something missing... perhaps I was expecting to see more of his creative mind overflowing on canvas, don't know. bloody rough affair between alpha and beta.
