Review: The Lost Films of Charles Ludlam

Head on over to X-TRA Online to read my recent article on 'The Lost Films of Charles Ludlam', which screened in the Queer/Art/Film series at IFC in February. The article will be printed in volume 13 number 1 of the Los Angeles based contemporary art quarterly hitting stands in September.

"Mimesis is missing the point, which was pleasure, all along. Revising narrative based, normative cinema, Ludlam produced a revelatory sensation-based cinema without counterpoint in the breadth of avant-garde cinematic production."

It’s the look you believe (in?)
And that sort of nose
Ordinariness is the hallmark of the star
But here, that’s inverted
To like fantasy, an empathic
Relatability. There’s little I feel
In common with Denise, except perhaps
The ire.
