A slap in the face of aesthetic pomposity, this is a delightful parody of religion (the deus absconditus cat that's away), the human condition and nothing as pompous as all that...as well as an exploration of frenetic visual music.
Not sure whether to take this as homophobic or homoerotic. Maybe both? The blend of eroticism with violence is cool and the beat is great. The cuts speed up and does the beat as in Ravel's Bolero to a climax which is cool to watch.
May I ask: on 30 films this month, 6 belong to Gay culture. 2 Maddin films, 1 porn Shortbus, 2 nice French comedies: Crustacés et Coquillages & Chansons d'Amour, 1 doc BALLAD OF GENESIS. That makes 1 film/5 - 20% - from which the 3 first would'nt fit in any film club or festival.
Good gay culture OK (Bruce LaBruce, L'Inconnu du Lac, Too much Pussy) but no over-representation please.
Does anybody have an opinion? Thx
