What I liked
“Triptych” is like a relationship film noir in which the shifting lights of an urban milieu illuminate the characters by turns and from varying angles. You think you’ve got a handle on these three but they each prove to be too slippery for easy pigeonholing. In defying the reductivist ‘rules’ of character development, we get a portrait that’s real as life because it’s ‘queer as folk’. Plus we see the boundaries of art expanded to demonstrate that patronage itself can be a dark art.
What I didn't like
It was hard to sell the Feury’s tiny, spare black-box space as a well-to-do couple’s home, but one makes allowances for the Fringe, naturally.
My overall impression
Superior HFF menu offering. If you savor Strindberg and relish Albee, order the Wochner. It’s food for thought.
