Hint Tip: William E. Jones

So you’re not at Milan Fashion Week. Big deal! Consider it a chance to bone up on your retro gay erotica. Beginning tomorrow, Anthology Film Archives will screen the complete repertoire of filmmaker William E. Jones, both his feature-length works and shorts (sorry for the use of that word in this context). These subversive gems include Finished, a haunting portrait of Quebec porn star Alan Lambert, who appeared in two dozen films before committing suicide in 1992, as well as lighter-hearted mash-ups like The Fall of Communism as Seen In Gay Pornography, in which every image comes from gay porn produced in Eastern Europe since the introduction of capitalism. Prada who?
