3 things about Shirley Clarke’s PORTRAIT OF JASON

Portrait of Jason [1967]

1. “I’ve suffered very expensively. I mean, extensively.”
2. The drag queens go downtown and suck in their lips.
3. He moves his hand away from his face, revealing a track of tears on his cheek.

Stunning. Even 34 years later, this film points the way forward.
