Poison

by

(Todd Haynes, 1991).
Part homage to Jean Genet, part crypto-AIDS horror flick, Todd Haynes’s experimental first feature—a Sundance prize winner (and right-wing target) in 1991—is characterized by an irony beyond irony. Jumping between three interlocking narratives, it spirals ever more emphatically into each tale’s abyss.
