The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye
An intimate, affecting portrait of the life and work of ground-breaking performance artist and music pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV) and his wife and collaborator, Lady Jaye, centered around the daring sexual transformations the pair underwent for their 'Pandrogyne' project.
this movie is sold as something more than what it really is- the pandrogeny is a very small part of this barely-over-an-hour-long movie, so the whole marketing aspect of this movie seems to me a bit exploitative
but that to say, it's a very lovely movie- it reminded me how much i truly love genesis (the movie is basically a very short documentary about her) and would love to see something more with or about her, maybe made by jonas mekas (i say that because this movie was mostly and touchingly home movie-ish)
it's a more just a ballad of genesis, with lady jaye happening to take a very large part
A film about pure love - nothing more, nothing less.
CINEPHILIA - Surprise movie #1 @ IL KINO Berlin
A tell all documentary about the life of legendary musican Genesis P Orridge and her wife the late Lady Jade Orridge. This movie functions as a pseduo art film/ documentary as i use the term " art film" very loosely. The presentation can at times feel a little jarring as with certain scenes in the movie skipping frames along with the dialogue not properly synching up with the voices of the actors. These effects add little to the narrative along with overall making the viewing experience very unsettling. The story between the two central characters (Genesis & Lady Jade) is admirable at times, but this documentary seems to focus less on their love life and more on Genesis career together with (would seem to a average person) strange ideologies. As a fan of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV, i enjoyed this documentary, but if your not a fan of her you probably wouldn't get much enjoyment out of this movie.
Este es el único documental con el cual me quedó claro el significado del término "pandroginia".
Más que hacer un review remito esta vez a este artículo que lo aclara todo (o eso intenta): tinyurl.com/lftlzhy
También está el caso de las hermanas Soska (Jen y Sylvia), directoras de cine de horror. En su película "American Mary" [ letterboxd.com/film/american-mary/ ] tienen una participación actoral. Interpretan a dos hermanas gemelas (igual que en la vida real) que desean proceder con una compleja operación que las "una" más y así amplificar su conexión afectiva, corporal ...o como pretendan llamarla. Esto es solo parte del entramado de esta cinta, no es precisamente su argumento. Aunque por ahí va.
Might grow on a second viewing, when the reason for a frustrating absence is understood from the beginning rather than 95% of the way through, which meant that during what should have been an emotionally wrenching scene I was retroactively querying my dissatisfaction with the early part of the film. (Serious talk: if you can't make me cry with this story, your film has gone wrong somewhere.) But don't feel really inspired for that second viewing, so: life. It's short.
Alternativa, freaky, punk. La pandroginia es la nueva carne fragmentada por la visión de Burroughs.
Wonderful stream of conscious documentary about the life and career of Genesis P-Orridge.
This is a fascinating story about how Genesis P-Orridge (lead singer of Throbbing Gristle & Psychic TV) and his wife Lady Jaye undergo an experiment in pandrogeny. They attempt to merge their identities through plastic surgery to look alike among other things. This film was tedious to sit through and I didn't feel like I got to know enough about Jaye. This could have been so much better given such unique subject matter.
