Bruce LaBruce's Super 8 ½
See more » Gay Themed
I forgot how little I like arthouse movies until I watched Super 8 ½ tonight. The trash-punk aesthetic was wearying. It mustíve been novel back in the beginning of Dada but about the time of the Beatniks it became just another niche market bright kids who feel disenfranchised. Havenít heard the word existential so abused since I used to read Norman Mailer.
But Iím not silly enough to fault Bruce LaBruce for making what he wanted instead of the comedy about the gay porn industry I was expecting. He did put on a little makeup which is my idea of a treat.
