Like Cattle Towards GlowBy TLA Releasing
"Arty teenage death, Gallic rimming, and a maddening passion for punk penises make this Eric Rohmer?like porno a real French tickler for the fucked-up literary set." -John Waters, ARTFORUM (His 8th favorite film of 2016)
Dennis Cooper and Zac Farley's Like Cattle Towards Glow is a 93 minute film consisting of five independent, thematically and emotionally interconnected scenes. The film is a complex, intimate, strangely serene, wide-ranging and always challenging exploration of sexual desire as a hiding place. In these unique, stylistically and temperamentally diverse scenes, each one featuring its own set of characters and storyline, sex makes a promise of something so intense and untenable to the characters that they feel they must enter it in secret - through an act of violence, or under the guise of an unrelated transaction, or by rationalizing its dangers away with the help of politics, or through utilizing it remotely as material for a purely aesthetic project. Like these characters, and like sex itself, Like Cattle Towards Glow is as deep, knowing, and unknowable as it is raucous, original, and explicit on the surface.
