In psychoanalytic theory, a dream of a fallen tooth represents fears of castration. In Magnetic Resonance, a cicada falls to its death and New Wave musician Clint Ruin falls to the feet of Marc Almond. A tooth stands in for a brain tumor and the naked legs and tucked bodies of filmmakers Malic Amalya and Nathan Hill, on a sheet-less mattress, stand in for Almond and Ruin's performance on stage. Queer, "castrated" bodies become conduits of pull, attraction, and magnetism.
