90 minutes of my life wasted!

This is Amanda Kramer's second feature to attend the Edinburgh Film Festival [no 2 films by the same director should be in a festival, unless it's a retrospective!]...the first one was bad, this, the second, is abysmal. 

Seriously, if this the the future of LGBT's looking GRIM.

No review, you wasted my time!


The(ir) Blurb...

A Streetcar Named Desire by way of John Waters, Andrea Riseborough leads this leather-clad, gender-bending treatise on lust, marriage and camp. Opening film, Rotterdam 2022.

A seemingly ideal lower-east side bohemian couple, Suze (Riseborough) and Arthur (Harry Melling) re-evaluate their sexuality, gender and connection to each other after witnessing the violent murder of a stranger by the Young Gents, a group of dangerously alluring greasers. Thrust into unfamiliar territory, Arthur is drawn to gang leader Teddy, whose lustful gaze and Tom of Finland-conjuring looks titillate Suze in equal measure. Featuring cameo appearances from Demi Moore and Mary Lynn Rajskub and styled straight out of an early Almodóvar film, this defiantly unconventional and feverish pseudo-musical cements director Amanda Kramer (Ladyworld, SFF 2019) as a unique voice in the contemporary film landscape.
