Little Gay Boy, Christ is Dead is hauntingly beautiful with it’s use of imagery, symbolism and a fine tuned score. It teases and tantalises your eyes and ears to make the viewing experience almost uncomfortable, yet you cannot turn away. The movement from innocent to spoilt is artistically depicted with such originality that it’s hard to find fault with this must see.
