Death Drive Director’s Cut 2014
52min | Action, Drama, Fantasy | October 2014 (Germany)
Death Drive is an exploration of the self-destructive tendencies in gay male sexuality utilizing the mediums of independent film, pornography, and dance to create a highly unique work of experimental film that transcends genre, gender, and expectation. Set in the desert of California, spanning from Palm Springs to Las Vegas, Death Drive tells the story of a young man, who after emerging from a pool of water scrambles to piece together the previous night before embarking on a series of psychedelic adventures that reveal his darkest internal instinct.
It starts with 28 minutes of grunting porn followed by some arty-farty piddle in a desert with a man covered in flour and wearing an old net curtain (it’s screamingly bad)…ending with more grunting porn.
Reading the blurb…you would expect some high-brow, inaccessible art-couture. Instead, you get badly-filmed, low-brow, animalistic porn…pretending to be something it’s not.
