I saw this film in 1995 in a Queer Film Styles class at USC. In my notes, I wrote that the sailors were campy. The fire symbolized burning desire or oppression. The oppressive sailors were eroticized. The erotic interest of homophobes was a major theme. The use of milk symbolized a purification ritual. The sex was supposed to be seen as a spiritual act as opposed to Jean Genet films that portrayed sex as destructive. The African sculpture was representative of pornography.

The surrealism was absolutely fantastic, the metaphor added a few twists to the understanding of the audience. It gives the audience an emotional outburst, the imageries are very powerful.

A gorgeously conceived and shot fever-dream, filled with vivid imagery.

Definite movie on how to get a good night's sleep easily. Also features a sequence on how to light one's cigarette in a real cool way.
