Blood On Snow

Last night we trudged through snow and ice to see "Let The Right
One In," a hauntingly beautiful film about sexuality, alienation,
schoolyard bullying, and vampires. Very much a queer film,
in that it shifts the focus of its young male protagonist's desire
from girls to an ambiguously sexed/gendered creature
who only passes as a girl. It also privileges loyalty
and commitment over familial bonds, and asks the viewer to
take most seriously not the vampire's stylized rituals, but the
terrifying violence of quotidian bullying.


Ooh! Want to see that! Dunno if I'll be able to get out of the country, though.
