It’s a Gay Essential:
The 2009 release, Raging Sun, Raging Sky (Rabioso sol, rabioso cielo), is a lush and artistic project by Mexican writer and director Julián Hernández. Composed of three distinct acts, this film is a rich visual tale of love, sexuality, and destiny, starring Giullermo Villegas, Jorge Becerra, and Javier Olivan.
“In Raging Sun, Raging Sky, Hernández uses myth to break through the surface of sex, going deeper into a cerebral/emotional cavern – deeper into Cinema.”
“The lingering air of sensuality in this film, as in Broken Sky, is so strong that it’s almost as though all the characters have ESP—that they can sense each other’s presence, their skin and bodies, yes, but also their melancholy and loneliness, their intense passions.”

“This is a work of love, from a director who in true Derek Jarman fashion, uses the screen like a canvas to paint his achingly slow affirmation of same-sex love.”
