Dropping like a Hammer Film Production from the 1970s or an errant episode of Dark Shadows, Bruce LaBruce’s new SAINT-NARCISSE takes the titular myth to its queer conclusion when long lost twin brothers Dominic and Daniel—the former a leather-clad biker, the latter the abbot’s favorite at the local monastery—find one another and meet their destiny. Starring Félix-Antoine Duval—student of the I’m-Not-Just-a-Human-Being-I’m-a-Piece-of-Meat School of Acting—SAINT-NARCISSE is a celebration of camp portentousness and sexual fluidity beyond limit.
