Now Available: Knife + Heart

A stylish throwback to the giallo thrillers of the 1970s (with a decidedly gay twist), Knife + Heart is one of the year’s most acclaimed LGBTQ films. It earned numerous raves from critics, including Katie Walsh of the Los Angeles Times who said “this magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy.”

Set in Paris during the summer of 1979, the film follows Anne (Vanessa Paradis), who produces third-rate gay porn. After her editor and lover Lois (Kate Moran) leaves her, she tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flaming sidekick Archibald (Nicolas Maury). But when one of her actors is brutally murdered, Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down.
