CGiii Comment

Queer bashing by sailors in 1947 - Anger by name and, quite rightly, by nature produced a film - regardless of the inherent difficulties in doing so - that is uniquely important....probably, his best work.

The(ir) Blurb...

A wordless film, save for a voice-over introducing us to the imagery of dreams. A shirtless young man dreams of awakening to finds photographs of a muscular sailor carrying him in his arms. He goes to a bar where the sailor from his dream displays his muscular upper torso. A gang of sailors, swinging chains, enters menacingly. He watches, smoking. They surround him and an assault begins. Surreal touches accent the dream-like qualities. A phallic firework, a flaming Christmas tree, and the burning photographs provide climax and closure as the young man, back in bed, is beside the sailor.
