For all those who are easily disturbed by violence you may want to look away.

Logo’s video for the pleasantly simple track “Cardiocleptomania” was designed to “challenge and condemn homophobia in sports as much as it is the story of opposite impulses.” The intentionally disturbing clip is filmed with perfect cinematography that blends beautifully with the basic beat and repetitive vocals. The handsome blond abuser is played by Neils Schneider, best known for his performance in the French Canadian gay masterpiece Les Amours Imaginaires (Heartbeats).

The film has garnered quite the controversy for its graphic illustration of violence inspired by homophobia. However, the video was created to expose the horror of similar events. Naturally I loved the video, I found it challenging and inspiring but it’s up to you what you take from it.

So what do you think? Is the message effective or just offensive?

There is no message so it’s neither effective nor offensive.

This should be titled, ‘Don’t Kiss Straight Boys.”

You’re on such a composition and blood everywhere in American movies. While in our country are just comedy.
The film can not be inspiring or challenging, it was just you other old movies.
