The Ornithologist ★★★

The most dangerous game. The homoerotic dangers of the flesh, the sinister allure of nature, the sainthood of lust. The film is safer than it wants to be, risk is submerged to authorial effects in a manner desire usually isn’t in Rodrigues previous work, to given to current festival approved tableaux to quite achieve the anti via crucis of desire it is striving for. JP is a very talented guy and most of this is seductive, but I can’t shake the feeling it is all rather academic as well.
