The Book of Revelation is a 2006 Australian film directed by Ana Kokkinos, which she adapted with Andrew Bovell to screen from the novel by Rupert Thomson. It was produced by Al Clark, with original music by Cezary Skubiszewski. The movie was unique for its detailed visuals of a non statutory female on male rape.

Plot[edit]

Daniel (Tom Long), a charismatic dancer, is drugged and abducted in an alley by three hooded women. They proceed to torture and rape him in an abandoned warehouse for about two weeks, before they take him in their car and dump him out.

When he is left to return to his normal life, he loses his ability to dance and has problems relating with his environment. To reclaim his identity, he seeks revenge. He does so by hitting on every woman who responds to him hoping his abductors would be among them.
