Bruce LaBruce: The Advocate for Fagdom

At turns, a transgressive artist in the purest sense of the term, the spiritual son of Kenneth Anger and John Waters, or leader of the Queercore movement, one thing is certain: Bruce LaBruce makes small budget movies full of hardcore sex, political messages and containing as much violence as tenderness, in which he happily crushes any gay attitude cliches while practicing ironic self glorification, mocks any horror movie or dramatic set ups, and avoids all fashionable art trends. Bruce maddens, irritates, enchants, charms, fascinates and mostly keeps the LaBruce mystery very much alive. Cast includes: Bruce LaBruce, Glenn Belverio, Bruce Benderson, Jurgen Bruning, Rick Castro, Jey Crisfar, Vaginal Davis, Rupert Goldsworthy, Ernest Hardy, Richard Kern, Harmony Korine, Javier Peres, Susanne Sachsse, Jack Sargeant, Gus Van Sant and John Waters.

Bruce LaBruce

For over a quarter-century the auteur/provocateur known as Bruce LaBruce has been disrupting, dissecting, and disrobing in the name of cinema. Blasted into the demimonde of underground punk moviemaking with his feature debut, No Skin Off My Ass, LaBruce quickly established that, while he was certainly game for exploring the messy, sticky zones of fringe film, he was actually the unholy product of arthouse auteurism. From Robert Altman to Federico Fellini and Werner Herzog, LaBruce mines the sacred texts of the canon and inserts his own revolutionary gay-sex-positive narratives. Layered with scathing wit and a fundamental rejection of capitalist control over the mind and body, his films and photographs take to task the mainstream porn industry as well as Hollywood. In this spirit, he has collaborated with actors—like Slava Mogutin, Tony Ward, and Francois Sagat—who swing between art and commerce, fashion and filth, the avant-garde and the boulevard. Bruce LaBruce’s particular brand of regal queer fecundity has spawned a generation of feral filmmakers (and ravenous audiences).
