The Fleisher cartoon Bimbos Initiation and the 1920s porn
film Getting his Goat treat the subjects of curiosity and anxiety
over sexuality and social membership with humor and those themes are
accentuated in The Deadman. As much as that film illustrates desire
and the variety of metaphors inside Martinas Playhouse, it is
The Deadman (1990), adapted with Keith Sanborn from a short story
by Bataille, that makes it real. I was interested in making a movie
about sexuality that had sex in it, that was the bottom line, that
represented the sex act with a woman but wasnt about objectification
of the woman in traditional terms.
