For the past months Joseph Lally has entertained and shocked us in equal measure with his Soap Opera series, taking fashion film to an extreme with his exploration of taboos from suicide to sexuality and fascism. Today we launch the finale, aptly entitled Money Shot.
Lally's final episode takes tounge-in-cheek inspiration from the conventions of pornography, euphemistically censoring the sexual imagery with visual puns of dollar bills and fireworks. In his own words 'The money shot is that which arrests the eyes and seduces the senses.' Enjoy the filmmaker's farewell to Soap Opera, complete with his signature use of black and white and beautiful boys.
