The Acrobat ★★★★★

Christophe: *burns Micha’s back with a lit cigarette as foreplay*
Me: this better not awaken anything in me

Christophe: *lashes Micha repeatedly with a cord*
Me: this, too, better not awaken anything in me!

In all seriousness this is an incredibly bleak French Canadian film about two men’s intense sexual connection, and I dunno, to me it’s a masterpiece. I absolutely get that this film will not be to everyone’s liking, and that’s okay. But I think for some, this’ll be quite a profoundly dark experience in the best of ways! But watch it on physical media, as all streaming services hosting it cuts out/censors all the graphic, unsimulated sex scenes.
