Storyline

A lonely hairdresser watches the title sequence of "That Cold Day in the Park" then visits a local park to invite a down-and-out skinhead to his apartment. He draws the silent man a bath and talks to him as he soaks. He locks his guest in a bedroom. Next day, the skinhead leaves through the window and visits his sister, who's making a film called "Sisters of the SLA." He helps with a screen-test. The hairdresser has dreams and fantasies involving the skinhead, the skinhead returns to visit him, and then the filmmaker pays a call on the two men, exposing her brother as faking his silence and pretending a lack of sexual interest. Fantasies can come true. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Absolutely Horrible
6 March 2002 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

Bruce LaBruce's attempts at artistic flair instead look more like pompous, wanna-be shock conjecture that goes nowhere. The saddest thing is that this film could have actually been quite good, if done properly. The grainy stock of the film (8mm blown up to 16mm) is quite appropriate at times, unfortunately LaBruce's inept ability to edit a film (yes, he actually edited this too) leaves much to be desired as what appears at first glance to be French new-wave inspired film making actually is a mere coincidence of defaults (just because it's low budget doesn't make it good). The over-dubbing of the dialogue is unbearable, as is the photographer's inability to work a camera. Moreover, while the idea of defamiliarizing a nazi skinhead into an object of queer attraction is funny and perhaps a good jab at the overtly masculine subculture, it goes into dangerous grounds because it attempts to fetishize (and subsequently, aestheticize) fascism, subversion, and male dominance in it's most homophobic sense. However, this may be too extreme of an analysis, as the film's inability to perform even the most intermediate of tasks renders it property basic and devoid of any possible artistic interpretation. Stay away from this at all costs. It's that bad.
