Wakefield Poole (1972, USA)
Acclaimed director Wakefield Poole (Boys in the Sand) set a new standard for explicit gay cinema with his second feature BIJOU in 1972. Surreal and trippy, the film follows a construction worker (Bill Harrison) who witnesses a car accident and pockets the female victim’s purse in which he discovers her invitation to a club named Bijou. There he enters a strange erotic world where dark fantasies becomes reality. A fever dream blending the erotic and the divine in equal parts, BIJOU is a psychosexual puzzle that rewards multiple viewings.
