Knife + Heart
Un couteau dans le coeur
If you only see one arthouse slasher movie set in the gay porn industry this year, you had better make sure it’s this one.

From the wickedly twisted mind of visionary filmmaker Yann Gonzalez comes a kinky queer horror odyssey like no other. Vanessa Paradis plays Anne, a ruthless gay-porn producer working in Paris in 1979. Nursing a serious broken heart following her break-up with girlfriend Lois, Anne launches herself into her latest and most ambitious film production. But as shooting gets underway, one of her stars is brutally murdered. Soon it becomes terrifyingly clear that a homicidal maniac is intent on bumping off the cast, one by one. Dripping with style and visual invention, Gonzalez’s libidinous delight comes steeped in playful genre references, owing as much to the opulent cinema of Dario Argento as it does the brash fetishism of William Friedkin’s Cruising.
