We are so sure that fans of Bruce LaBruce will be over-excited about his latest film that we've ordered more toilet paper for the showing. If that offended you, don't come and see this film. The Canadian indie hero's latest offering is arguably less incendiary than his last one, Skin Flick.

This time round, the story is of a gay intafada terrorist group loosely based on the Baader Meinhof gang of 70s Germany, who try and bring on the revolution through boy-on-boy action. But Brucie's trademark mix of hardcore pornographic images, shockingly (and purposefully?) bad acting, debateable pace and unfathomable narrative sidesteps is still the meat of Raspberry Reich.

When Raspberry Reich screened in Sundance this January some of the audience walked out. So be prepared. Toilet paper in the bins provided. Revolution in your own time.
