Poison

by

Dir. Todd Haynes (1991).
A Sundance prize winner (and rightwing target) on its premiere, Todd Haynes’s experimental first feature is part homage to Jean Genet, part crypto-AIDS horror flick, and characterized by an irony beyond irony. Poison jumping between three interlocking narratives Intolerance-style, spiraling ever more emphatically into each tale’s abyss.
