Querelle ★★★★

June Scavenger: 12/30
#27. An LGBT film.


What a hard-on of a flick. I'm used to more realism from Fassbinder but I really dug this indulgent Pink Narcissus/Kenneth Anger inspired Queerniverse. Some kind of sticky Fairy-tale. I loved seeing Querelle give in to his inhibitions like some kind of sexual catharsis. Falls a little flaccid in the second half but never loses that killer aesthetic.
