The Raspberry Reich

The Raspberry Reich
Director: Bruce La Bruce, 2004.
Germany/Canada, 90 minutes.
English.

A far left-wing terrorist cell in contemporary Germany is out to undermine and subvert the oppressive shackles of heteronormative fascism, led by fearless leader Frau Gudrun. The Baader-Meinhof inspired group finds itself caught in its own plot to spring a Patty Hearst-style kidnapping of a wealthy industrialist's son, indoctrinating him to their cause and transforming him into a model revolutionary in The Homosexual Intifada.

La Bruce satirically conflates ideas of homosexuality with that of extremist revolution doused in camp and kerosene, leaving no side unscathed, from the fear-mongering right to the bleeding-heart left and nearly everyone that hasn't kept up with their after-school Marxist studies.
