Subject: Re: Boot Camp Films


I think the "hottest" (and sickest) "boot camp film" is not a film at all,
but a short story by D.H. Lawrence, "The Prussian Officer". Talk about
self-repressed homosexuality all over the place, not seeing "other" in
"self", denial denial denial and fake girlfriends needed, while at the same
time...

Very complex, sicko story. DHL wrote in in response to "Death in Venice" by
Thomas Mann. I'm sure he had a hard-on the entire time.
