Catherine the Great Died for Her Sins, or Raunchy on the Ranch

Yes, the New Age is upon us and nowhere more nakedly than the state of Washington.Cannes is all aflutter with a flick that depicts "mammal-on-mammal" sexual congress, in this case terminal.
In July 2005, a 45-year-old man died of internal bleeding after being anally penetrated by an Arabian stallion during a bestiality weekend in the US state of Washington.

The victim, a Boeing engineer working on top-secret defence projects named Kenneth Pinyan, suffered a perforated colon.

The ensuing investigation led police - and eventually much of the national media - to the farm where the interaction took place, outing the other members of the group.

Independent filmmaker Robinson Devor shies away from prurient imagery, instead enveloping the story in rich photography that gives it a dreamlike beauty overwhelming the sordidness of the subject matter.

Sort of like "The Ring" gave a "dreamlike beauty" about telephone calls? It seems that I may have pre-judged these questing creatures, though, because in words that Lecan or Foucault might have crafted:
"They've crafted a subdued, mysterious and intensely beautiful film that presents bestiality not for the purpose of titillation?but as a way of investigating the subjective nature of morality," the movie trade magazine Variety wrote.

Variety should stick to "Sick flicks nix pix" or "Horseplay for fun and profit."
There are laws of nature and of man, and Kenneth Pinyan broke them both, along with his colon, while exploring "the subjective nature of morality."

Empress Catherine the Great was rumored to have met her end when a winch lowering a jackass onto her receptive charms broke---the wages of sin?

Or am I being "judgmental?"
