Lady, 1994, 28 min
A portrait film of a purposefully unsettling kind, starring Dominique Dibbell of The Five Lesbian Brothers. The exact identity of the redhead at the center of Lady is impossible to pin down. Is she a woman playing a man playing a woman, or more specifically, a lesbian playing a gay man playing a heterosexual woman? This purposeful ambiguity invites the audience to question the blurred parameters of sexuality, desire, and female identity.
In Ira Sachs's wonderfully twisted faux-documentary Lady, Dominique Dibbell...stars as a lesbian playing a gay man playing a '70's TV star, or something like that. This is the loopiest genderfuck of the year. - PlanetOut.com
