"This is not conventional narrative, start to end, born in, schooled at, died documentary." | Photo: Joanna Reposi Garibaldi/Gabriela Jara Lemebel is a documentary based on a true life story. In this case that of Pedro Lemebel, a pioneering figure in Latin America's LGBTQ movement and – I confess, ashamed – a figure I was unaware of until I watched this film. The narrative is not exactly linear, though here, there, it is possible to trace a line. There are early days, dressing up.
"Not a film i'd recommend to anybody, unless late night, at a party, with a large bowl of popcorn and an audience prepared to laugh at it, not with it." I shall start with a confession: and no, not that sort of confession. I really have not sat down and viewed that many actual porn films end to end. By which, I guess, I mean films whose primary objective is to have the viewer tuned in, turned on and, at some point, self-touching.
@BrodyLevesque I'm relating it to trumps comments which sorta imply that leniency should be shown cause there are loads of accidents.
My question is whether that attitude has found it's way into US courts...
