The unique work of Carlos Conceição gets spotlighted in this special edition Blu-ray
Though the work is not specifically gay-themed, there is a lot on offer in Name Above Title and Other Tales of Woe, an amazing new collection of works from director Carlos Conceição – including a wealth of hot guys and some subtly homoerotic themes.
The work of Carlos Conceição is one inhabited by handsome characters exploring the boundaries of limitless pleasure, romance, politics and even murder. Before unleashing his breakout narrative feature Tommy Guns, Conceição experimented in the realm of short and medium-length films for many years crafting work both beautiful and transgressive alike.
Collected here are six short films headlined by the medium-length (and nearly dialogue free) film Name Above Title, following the story of a handsome serial killer that unexpectedly catapults into social media fame.
Also included are the films Bad Bunny, about a wayward boy who punishes his mother’s lover; Versailles, featuring an elderly woman and a hormone-driven teenage boy at a secluded beach cabin; Turquoise Boy, a music video starring Conceição regular Joao Arrais; Goodnight, Cinderella, a subversive take on the classic fairy tale; Hell, or Pool Keeping, about a suburban kid in an unusual family predicament; and The Flesh a stylish tale of a nun and her troubled relationship with Jesus Christ himself.
