Alternate Versions

The UK DVD under the title 'The Raspberry Reich' released by Peccadillo Pictures is cut by 3 minutes 42 seconds, to remove explicit sexual detail which cannot be justified by context (although some detail was allowed to remain) for an 18 certificate. The DVD under the title 'The Revolution is my Boyfriend', released by Millivres Prowler is the full uncut version, rated R18, which means it can only be sold in licensed sex shops. See more »

User Reviews

Loved it!
18 December 2004 | by LucasMannSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this LaBruce film.

I like his stuff anyway but I genuinely found this possibly his best work.

It felt like I was watching a mixture of Andy Warhol/Paul Morrissey and Jean Luc Godard mixed in with hardcore porn -with extras laughs.

Yes, it's not perfect (nothing is) but it moves along very quickly (90mins seems a long film for LaBruce I believe).

Make sure you get the Strand Releasing USA Region 0 disc only as it's uncut.

Also, watch the film right to the end of the titles!
