OUT ON DVD: Michael Fassbender Feels Shame, Gay Dysfunction In Domain And American Translation, And More!


American Translation
($19.99 DVD, TLA)

Billed as a modern Bonnie & Clyde, directors Pascal Arnold and Jean-Marc Barr’s sexual thriller follows a hot young Frenchman Chris (Pierre Perrier), and his new lover, Aurore (Lizzie Brocheré), as they roam the Gallic countryside seducing and killing gay hustlers. Is Chris doing this because he’s a tormented closet case?  And why is Aurora helping to dispose of the bodies of gay hustlers he bangs and then kills? There’s more questions than answers, but Perrier’s numerous charms make it clear how his character can get away with murder.

    Probably a bad movie in every way [exploitative[,but Chris(Pierre) sure is pretty!

    Glad to see there’s finally a film on Goodman !!! Haven’t noticed any public comment on him since his death.
    Dating myself,but reading “Growing UP Absurd”,on a prof’s recommendation in the late 60’s,I found it already dated.
    “The Empire City”,on the other hand, is a great novel for anyone,of any sexual orientation.

    I cannot tell you how excited I am to see Goodman in a documentary. The trailer is superb. Goodman’s writings had a profound effect on many of us in the Sixties, and he, along with the Beats, served as role models for those growing up absurd. I had not known that he was a co-founder of Gestalt Therapy as I assumed it sprang fully grown from the head of the late Fritz Perls. It makes sense that when I researched a book I wrote about a “Me” Generation human relations seminar similar to est, I came upon Perls, who for all his faults emerges a fascinating, charismatic individual on the order of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Ginsberg’s mentor. Now I see that Goodman, too, was one of the “crazy gurus.”

    Fassbender is German-Irish: dad is German, mom is Irish.
