Postcards From America

Very loosely — perhaps too loosely — based on the autobiographical writings of David Wojnarowicz, this experimental, low-budget first feature (1994) by Steve McLean focuses on an unhappy suburban childhood in New Jersey viewed from a gay male perspective. The film ransacks the repertory of experimental techniques in the way (if not to the degree) Natural Born Killers does, as it attempts to perk up three separate fictional stories about different stages in the same life. Some of the results are striking, some merely abrasive. With Jim Lyons, Michael Tighe, and Olmo Tighe. (JR)
