Gentleman Reg released his great new album Jet Black this week and to mark the occasion we’ve solicited a movie memory from Toronto’s indie rock sweetheart.

For this edition, Reg remembers Neil Jordan’s 1992 IRA thriller The Crying Game, notorious for its dramatic, gender-bending plot twist. “It definitely wasn’t the first time I’d scene male nudity in film,” he says. “But it was the one that had the most impact on me for sure.”
