Nicht der Homosexuelle ist pervers, sondern die Situation, in der er lebt

Rosa von Praunheim West Germany, 1971

josé neves's rating of the film It Is Not the Homosexual Who Is Perverse, But the Society in Which He Lives

Perhaps the best Praunheim film and if its visual side has acquired a value of a historical record of a time - almost archaeological -, its ideological side is a performance of a timeless ideology - since the past always crave to return. The film gained an unusual perspective for the present as a document of contemporary action - the political art seek a discourse that in 71 had already found its formulation.
