Poison (1991)

Todd Haynes directs Edith Meeks, Larry Maxwell and Susan Norman in three metaphorical tales of outlawed queerness based on the works by Jean Genet.

More like a strong sedative, this Poison won’t kill you but it will put you to sleep. An early work in pastiche by the now masterful Haynes. The final torture scene where a boy is covered in spit makes for queasy viewing.
