X,Y ^ Directed by Vladimir Vitkin ^ Based on the cult novel of the same name, recently dubbed as one of the best horror novels of the last 25 years, “X,Y” is a disturbing psycho-sexual fetishistic nightmare, examining sexual identity and relationships that plays like a “Freaky Friday” for adults when a stripper loses her memory and becomes inexplicably convinced that she’s a man.
