"All art is at once surface and symbol." Viva LaBruce!
13 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

L.A. ZOMBIE is a work of Art. It is a beautiful poetic film. Not fluffy and sappy beautiful, it is poignantly exquisite, but it drives the point home.

Anyone who is an outcast or who has ever experienced being excluded, mocked or laughed at for being gay/bi/lesbian/trans, different from what others perceive as standard looking, or even a bit on the weird side can sympathise with this zombie/homeless character. He might be on too much drugs, insane, a horny-necrophiliac, a hedonist or whatever. However, he transcends all that pain and contemptuous treatment by society through the brutal expression of his sexuality.

In his mind, the creature frees other people from their mediocrity (they are dead inside perhaps, so here might come the resurrection symbolism) by sharing his manhood with them. Always alone, he keeps going and going further... becoming more monstrous-looking and hungry for sex as he witnesses all walks of outlaw and outcast types: the corrupt business guy, the non-white gangsta, the homeless guys, the S&M gang into all types of excesses...

The alternation between what is going inside the zombie's mind and the probable reality shows him as invisible to society, helpless and "ugly". He does his thing and walks away as if it is of no importance, or just a natural need, leaving his lovers dumbfounded.

The opening shot on the beach and final minutes are of immense cinematic beauty. The close-up crying scene is heartbreaking, and the cool photography and use of music/lack of dialogues throughout the glum and gore scenes have us amazed/grossed out/feeling sorry for this miserable freaky character.

LaBruce holds our attention and his political message is still strong, besides the pornographic content (the surface). It is one of the most interesting accomplishments in all-time Queer Cinema. The amateurish actors keep the film realistic and fresh.

There are lots of symbols in L.A. ZOMBIE, but since I am not a film student I leave it to each of you to make an interpretation of them (and I'll avoid being called dumb by some).

If you want some cool gay underground experimentation: go watch it!

If you want a non-conformist message to ponder on: go watch it!

If you like alternative/independent Art: go watch it!

If you like original no-barrels drama/horror: go watch it!

And finally, if you think Cinema is not solely entertainment but a means for revolution, Bruce LaBruce is the right man for starting it!

I'm already waiting for the next piece by this fantastic filmmaker.

My rating: 10/10
