WATCH: We’re Sure The Catholic League Will Hate “Little Gay Boy, Christ Is Dead”

We’re not sure what to make of Antony Hickling’s Little Gay Boy, chrisT is dead, but the fact that it incorporates religious iconography makes us fairly certain it’ll piss off Bill Donohue and the trolls over at the Catholic League. That in itself is enough to make us want to support this surreal-looking flick. (The NSFW-ish trailer is above.)

The film’s creators describe it as a day in the life of Jean Christophe (actor Gaetan Vettier), “a young man who lives though a series of abusive encounters, submissively sacrificing himself to each situation. The violence of the film is accentuated by the use of BDSM, performance art and dance.”

The full film will screen at the LGBT film festival Cheries Cheris, happening in Paris from October 5 to 14. If you’re in the City of Lights, check it out!

    Looks disgusting. I have nothing against S&M, but if I’m going to watch S&M, I would at least like there to be a plot and storyline and for the actor to actually be hot. This seems like nothing more than a French snuff film. I thought their culture had move past that, but apparently that was only when it was women that were being disrespected.

    @tdx3fan: the French haven’t made a halfway decent film since the 1950’s. 99.95 of their cinematic output has been pretentious pseudo-artsy claptrap.

    Did anyone else click this for the Simpson’s reference?

  • MikeE

    oops, that was supposed to be “99.9%”… finger slipped on the shift key.

  • jwrappaport

    Whoops. No apostrophe. Should be “Simpsons.”

  • Fidelio

    Too bad about all the distractions. This could be a great premise for a film: an honest, thought-provoking work on submissive bottoms and their penchance for humiliation. But it’s just a trailor and, perhaps, I’ve said too much.

    Intriguing. Not personally into S&M but I know plenty of people who are into it with eyes wide open, including subs/slaves. Can’t speak to the psychology of it all, but if it’s an honest portrayal of that sub-culture, might be worth seeing.
