In Excess
University of Chicago Press

This chapter analyzes the “Fiesta” and “Maguey” of Sergei Eisenstein's film ¡Que Viva Mexico!. It highlights the excessive detail in the film's imagery and its violent homoeroticism, and links its digressive sexuality to a symbolic economy centered on production. This chapter also investigates the treatment of homoerotism as it is linked in the film to religious ecstasy.

Keywords:   Fiesta, Maguey, homoeroticism, digressive sexuality, symbolic economy, religious ecstasy
