Last Saturday, Emily and I shared raised voices and karate stances over the subject of whether or not it is okay to have sex with an animal. Guess which side I was on.

We had just finished watching this thing - ZOO, a poetic film about Zoophiliacs in the Pacific Northwest and their deep love of horses. Good, high brow horse porn saved my father in the war, I protested, but Emily couldn't disagree more. And she was right too. I made that up.

The most beautifully shot flm I I've seen since Bertolucci's The Conformist, it's was a strange subject to poeticize. Sadly, the plotting wasn't very linear so the attempted story was skewed, but see it for the visuals and rose bouquet of sympathy the filmakers stir within you for those who have a different, sexier kind of love.
