Slash My Gay Stuff To Ribbons

When introducing the trailer for the new french art-slasher Knife + Heart over at Vulture today our pal Kyle asked the question "Have you ever imagined what it might be like if Pedro Almodóvar directed a retro slasher film with a ton of queer content and some seriously wonderful costumes" and I think he was being rhetorical... but I totally have imagined that. Many times!
Anyway it's one of those semi-awkward moments when your porn invades your non-porn life -- Pierre Emö, the nicely-mustached fellow seen above, is featured in the trailer and you might recognize him from Bruce La Bruce's most recent X-rated project (in collaboration with CockyBoys) called It is Not the Pornographer That is Perverse... or maybe you just follow Pierre on his Instagram already (lord knows I did) - either way he's just one of the pretty young things whose futures don't look so bright in the trailer for this movie, which I will share with you now.
I wonder how far this movie's going to go, what with having actors with legit porn on their resumes... the film is premiering at Cannes today so I guess we'll hear soon. It was directed by Yann Gonzalez and stars Vanessa Paradis, all of which you know if you just watched that trailer. Anyway I don't think I've seen anything so in my wheelhouse... since earlier today when I posted about that Shirley Jackson movie at least! This is quite the day, you guys.

The movie looks interesting, but i just couldn't help but love this trailer the second m83 started playing. Then i remembered why the director's name sounded familiar, his brother is the guy behind m83! i'll be watching this one.

I realized after I posted this I forgot to mention the m83 soundtrack, which is obviously another big draw! They did the music for the director's previous movie as well.

The director's last film was interesting, if not entirely cohesive. This one looks super interesting though - I can't imagine it'll go unseen at least at film festivals (queer or otherwise) looking for provocation that isn't the typical same ol' same ol' of Gasper Noe or Lars von Trier.
