25 Noel Road: A Genius Like Us

25 Noel Road: A Genius Like Us
25 Noel Road: a genius like us is a passionate interpretation of the chaotic and violent relationship that was Joe Orton and Kenneth Halliwell. Set in London in 1967 we border between heaven and hell as we encounter the characters for the first time in the infamous murder scene that became 25 Noel Road. Orton was one of the first gay art icons. Out, notorious and anarchic, his plays dominated the left wing of the Arts. His life was sexual, aggressive, controlling and decadent in the extremes of the swinging sixties. Carlos Be's story does not pull its punches. It goes to the core of this excessive couple and examines their own dysfunctionality in a passionate and uninhibited way. the documentary of many facts about this most outrageous partnership is a lesson in itself. Modern life pales in comparison to the boundaries these two pushed from being jailed for defacing library books to the violence of their deaths. Orton says he would prefer people to value him than to love him - you will do after knowing this impactful dark and sexual play.
