Bamboozlement, 15 January 2008

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I saw this on a late-night double bill with Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? and think it fair to say it crammed more madness into 10 minutes than Baby Jane managed in two hours. If I had to sum up my feelings in a word it would be bamboozlement. Although I think I can say its subject matter (rich bloke meets up with working class bloke for sex, and they decide to invite an ape round to make it a threesome) is unique in modern cinema, its tone reminded me of late Pasolini in its mixture of high seriousness and humour. Plus, like Pigsty, even with a gun aimed at my head I wouldn't be able to tell you exactly what point was being made. Is it something to do with class, exploitation, the transfiguring power of art or the terrible living conditions of ape sex workers? Well, I haven't a clue but it was certainly fun not finding out.
