    The Abominable Freedom

    Sasquatch sex rituals unfold at a new age retreat somewhere in the deeper recesses of the 70s. Something is gestating in the womb of a white watermelon. Found footage, 00s camcorder performance, and the singing-through-the-wall scene from Wicker Man provoke smug yeti reaction shots. I have no idea how to explain this film object, yet somehow, it holds together.

    You know those gif reactions people are always posting on social medias with the slow zoom in on a face that gradually resolves into some desired expression? Yeah, so I've never in my life been tempted to deploy, or create, one of those until the perfect last shot of this completely dreamy lesbian Querelle city.

    Wojnarowicz: F**k You F*ggot F**ker

    Essential punk energy. Deep archives. Images that burn. Desolation is possibility. Healthcare is a human right. Silence = death.

    Totally Fucked Up

    Someone warned me that this was about 85 percent teen angst, but they failed to tell me that the other 15 percent was postmodern video diary structuralism, complete with Dennis Cooper name check. And I can't not love that early Araki energy, or the way gay fiction of this era posits a universe where straight people are relegated to background plot points at best. One of the leads gets seduced by the promise of rare Nine Inch Nails bootlegs, but honestly the whole early 90s industrial/fuzz zeitgeist soundtrack is a delight.
