V.O. | Chicago Reader

V.O.

William Jones reedits gay porn from the 70s and 80s for this 59-minute 2006 video, removing the sex and creating a suggestive poetry out of glances, gropes, undressings, elaborate cruising moves, and crotch close-ups—which some will find more stimulating than the clinical details of the real thing. But the pairing of these images with chunks of soundtracks from European art films (with subtitles) and a BBC interview with Jean Genet serves little apparent purpose, and Jones never takes the risk of intercutting images from the different films to construct his own narrative. Also showing: two shorts by Luther Price. 74 min.
