Stephen Poliakoff's overlooked and misunderstood Close My Eyes examines the pain and despair of an incestuous love affair. Poliakoff's challenging human drama dares to confront highly sensitive issues including AIDS and the taboo subject of incest, and uses the themes as melancholic metaphors for the irresponsible self-indulgence of the Thatcherite 1980s.
A brother (Clive Owen) and a sister (Saskia Reeves) have been harboring forbidden desires for each other for years. After they meet again, the two go at it like animals. Sex and guilt trip follow.
Chicks who thought Clive Owen sexy in a skirt in King Arthur are gonna relish watching his bare butt and mighty sword as he takes "brotherly love" to the next level. For the heterosexual men, Saskia Reeves, the sister we have always loved to fuck, will be a treat for the eyes.
A great film about a taboo subject. Highly recommended.
