Passio: The Last Supper Is a Feast of Flesh

The Last Supper“Eat this - it is my body,” says Danny Fox in Dark Alley’s new religious epic

For Immediate Release

September 28, 2024 (New York). One of the most legendary iconic images of religious tradition, Leonardo daVinci’s The Last Supper, has always been fodder for reference, reproduction and parody. Everything from The Simpsons to The Sopranos has done it, and it was memorably deconstructed in the megahit novel The DaVinci Code. Now notorious adult film director Matthias von Fistenberg has taken his turn, with his retelling of the Greatest Story Ever Told – Passio.

Passio tells a number of tales from and about the life of Jesus Christ, played by heavenly Dark Alley exclusive Danny Fox (pictured above). In the climactic scene, Jesus sits down to the famous meal with his various acolytes, and before long breaking bread has become swallowing meat and pounding beef. Soon we get to see what happened once Leonardo put down the paintbrush and picked up the lube bottle.

Says von Fistenberg in his essay The Story Behind Passio: “The scenes of the Last Supper offer a radically new interpretation. I maintained the color palette and meticulous composition from Leonardo daVinci’s famous painting, yet I was more inspired by the elegant grouping of figures portrayed by another Renaissance master, Jacopo Bassano. Here is Jesus depicted in the company of men only, the stunned expression on his face giving way to the friendly affections of his disciples. One thing leads to another and soon everything in the entire feast smacks of a brilliant mise-en-scène.”

Christian groups are already crying holy hell over a similarly themed poster for this year’s Folsom Street Festival, and at least the folks in that image are fully dressed. Wait till they get a load of this feast of flesh! What those overly sensitive pious types fail to realize is that The Last Supper is not sacred ground – it’s just one man’s interpretation of something that may or may not have happened. Passio is just another re-interpretation, and one that’s a hell of a lot more fun! And do they forget that the guy who painted the original was gay too?

The Language of Love

unlimitedpower.jpgIt seems Italian blogs and news sites are spreading the good word about Passio. The news first appeared on AGR, the news agency of Rizzoli-Corriere della Sera (the major Italian newspaper). It was also published on La Stampa, the FIAT-owned daily based in Turin, and a wide range of Italian-language blogs picked it up from there. Our apologies for any dodgy Italian translations:

“The Only Thing Worse Than Being Talked About… Is Not Being Talked About”

dsc_3555.JPGAs anticipated, folks have some things to say about Dark Alley’s upcoming religious rumpy-pumpy, Passio (link). Let’s start with the gay porn sites, shall we? They might be a bit more open-minded.

Numerous sites picked up the press release and trailer to run for their sex-hungry readers. QueerMeNow (link), JRL Charts (link), and Porn Confidential (link) are some of these.

Others had a bit more to say. GaySexBlog (link) : “Saying you’re the son of God can get you into the coolest clubs, I’m sure!”

Vidio View (link) : “Speaking of controversy, as we always do, looks like New York’s Dark Alley Media could have one on their hands with the upcoming release of their Passio. [Director] von Fistenberg adds… “Since my name is also Matthias, this movie is a gospel – a Passio. A version of the story according to me.” Always about “me.”

Chronicles of Pornia (link) : “As much as I believe in the freedom of expression and often rally against censorship, I have to say that I’m not sure exactly how I feel about Dark Alley Media’s upcoming Passio tale, depicting a gay version of Jesus Christ’s story. I’m not a religious person at all and while I do believe that some things are sacred I also feel that individuals should be allowed to share their own interpretations in order to spark real dialogue.”

The Avalanche Begins…

QueertyOnline fag rag has already taken up the Passio baton. They were all over Gaytanamo back in May, and now they’re first off the blocks with this one too, quoting an interview with Matthias von Fistenberg:

Matthias Von Fistenberg’s Passio will surely make a few Fox News anchors explode – and not in a good way. In fact, it is safe to say that even those non-acolytes of the “fair and balanced” network will be disturbed by von Fistenberg’s Jesus. This savior could care less about clothing the naked or feeding the hungry, unless the meal’s cock.

Passio: The Gospel According to Matthias von Fistenberg

PassioStudio launches to introduce the provocative movie trailer

For Immediate Release

September 20, 2024 (New York). Dark Alley Media’s Matthias von Fistenberg, never one to shy away from controversy, is now taking on perhaps the biggest institution of them all – Jesus Christ himself – in his latest movie, Passio.

With films known for bringing a biting wit and kinky gay sex edge to current events (including the award-winning Mutiny and political parody Gaytanamo), the notorious director has gone back 2,000 years to re-imagine the Son of God as Dark Alley Exclusive Danny Fox, bring love to all mankind. Whether tied to the cross or turning the Last Supper into a Feast of Flesh, he’s sure to inspire legions of men to kneel in worship.

Passio depicts a selection of incidents from the life of Jesus,” von Fistenberg explains. “The Latin word ‘passio’ means ‘suffering,’ and commonly it’s translated into English as ‘gospel.’ The original Passio texts tell the story of Jesus according to his Disciples – one of them being Matthias. Since my name is also Matthias, this movie is a gospel – a Passio. A version of the story according to me.”

When the current Pope calls gay people “satanic,” and the Anglican church is tearing itself apart over gays, the time is right to throw a different light on the subject, something von Fistenberg is only too happy to do.

The Last Temptation of Christ explored the humanistic aspect. Mel Gibson proved in Passion of the Christ that the naked body, whether suffering or not, is sexually attractive. Priest showed a gay priest lusting after Christ on the Crucifix. All of these are a prelude to my Passio,” says von Fistenberg. “I just took it one step further: if Jesus has feelings, needs and wants aside from the ones God supplied him, why can’t he also lust?”

Those Southern Baptists Must Be Wetting Themselves

aaronjesus.jpgDark Alley exclusive Aaron King (pictured) was in New Orleans in time for Southern Decadence – it was the final stop on the Nardicio’s Great Gay American Road Trip, after all. While he was there, we took the chance to freak out the locals in that way we enjoy so much.

Quoted from Next Magazine’s “Scene and Heard” column:

Getting the city’s attention – and a fair amount of wide-eyed shock – was Dark Alley porn pup Aaron King, who topped his spiky blond hair with a spiky crown of thorns in a “street theater” reenactment (ahem, porno publicity stunt) of Jesus carrying the cross down Bourbon Street with a crying Violet Temper as Mary Magdalene following behind and two hunky models whipping the shit out of him. Seriously. More than a few times King stumbled and fell, as his back and legs got redder than most of the confused yet curious faces of the drunks watching. Even when drinks and spit started flying, King took it like a champ, which no doubt the cast of Passio does. Rumor has it a similar stunt will be pulled soon down 14th Street from Chelsea to Union Square. If Gaytanamo questioned good taste, this one is bound to start a maelstrom!

hx-aaron-cover.jpgOh, there’ll be lynchings a-plenty, no doubt. Read the full story and see more pics here.

Meanwhile, Aaron also graces the cover of HX Magazine, blowing out the candles (and other things) to celebrate the venerable fag rag’s 16th anniversary.

Dark Alley Media Continues Expansion With New European Office

Matthias von FistenbergFor Immediate Release

Contact: 212-380-1010

August 1, 2024 (New York). Matthias von Fistenberg, creator and president of New York’s youngest, hottest and nastiest adult studio Dark Alley Media, announced today that the company intends to open a brand new base of operations in Berlin.

Drawn by the lure of sex-crazed men like Danny Fox and Tim Kruger, both stars of Dark Alley’s recent mega-hit movies like Gaytanamo and Von Fistenberg’s 8½, and both German natives, plus exciting partnerships with European companies Prime Pork and Bubble B, von Fistenberg is sure to find more flesh-hungry animals than ever to continue the company’s high-quality, low-morals reputation.

“Since so many of our most exciting recent discoveries, like Danny, Tim, Demetrius and Dillon Buck, have been Europe-based, it only made sense to open up this new office to more easily take advantage of the incredible men the region offers,” explained von Fistenberg (pictured above) of his decision.

The new office will come into operation as of September 1, 2024, sharing production, post-production, management and marketing with the original New York office. Upcoming releases such as religious epic Passio, extreme ass-play two-hander Matthias’ 20-Fist Weekend and politico-porn Gaytanamo’s follow-up Gay Bomb will be released to a sexualized and scandalized public as planned.
