Summary
Inspired by the writings of Jean Genet, it deftly interweaves a trio of transgressive tales, Hero, Horror, and Homo, that build toward a devastating climax. Hero, shot in mock TV-documentary style, tells a bizarre story of suburban patricide and a miraculous flight from justice; Horror, filmed like a delirious '50s B-movie melodrama, is a gothic tale of a mad sex experiment which unleashes a disfiguring plague; while Homo, explores the obsessive sexual relationship between two prison inmates. A runaway hit that made national headlines when it was attacked by right-wing politicians, Poison is unsettling, unforgettable, and thoroughly entertaining.
