Skinheads are victims of their misdirected guilt.
26 September 2000 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

Opening with a couple of black-and-white scenes of skinheads at play (including Steve Masters and Eden Miller beating up some guy) we return to color to see Tim Vincent getting off on Hitler's "Mein Kampf." They are joined by Ralph Steel, and soon Steve Masters gets off with Eden Miller on a British flag.

Later, Jens Hammer has dinner with Bastian, a Brit Black. LaBruce establishes them as "guppies" by showing them eating sushi and equipping their room with books on Robert Mapplethorpe.

The story culminates in the gang's decision to break into the guppies' apartment, vandalize it and terrorize the two occupants. They sexually overpower Bastian, noting "I've never f**ked a 'monkey' before." We're aware of the racism of this remark, which is emphasized as the gang chants "F**k the monkey" repeatedly. However, the violence looks so fake that the whole thing seems rather surreal.

Finally one of the guppies kills Eden Miller and turn the tables, forcing Steve Masters at gunpoint to undergo his own humiliation. The film interestingly ends as Bastian checks out one skinhead on a sidewalk.

LaBruce's point appears to be that the skinheads are victims of their misdirected guilt. He declines to go the traditional route of fetishizing fascist thugs through S&M games. Instead, he depicts his gang as exuberant in their homosexual enjoyment but disdainful of homosexuality.

LaBruce explores some of the contradictions of the skinhead lifestyle in interviews with the characters. One of them tries to hide the fact he's Jewish. Another sings the Austrian national anthem. While this film is not supposed to be taken too seriously, it provides something to think about afterwards.
