Le Soleil assassiné est un film franco-belgo-tunisio-algérien réalisé par Abdelkrim Bahloul et sorti en 2003.

Produit par Martine de Clermont-Tonnerre et les frères Dardenne, le film évoque la mémoire du poète Jean Sénac (1926-1973), assassiné en août 1973 dans des conditions mystérieuses.


Animateur de l’émission Poésie sur tous les fronts sur une radio algérienne, le poète Jean Sénac choisit, au moment de l’accès à l’indépendance de l’Algérie, de rester dans ce pays. Des années après, les relations avec le pouvoir se sont nettement dégradées et la police politique, le considérant comme un subversif dangereux de surcroît homosexuel, le surveille de près.

The film follows Harry Russo, a psychotic, drug-addicted crossdresser and film writer who is obsessed with a puppet named Rubberneck, the mascot of his favorite film which his girlfriend, Drew, had given him. Harry believes Rubberneck speaks to him, instructing him to commit acts of violence, such as killing "whores" (or "who-ers" as Harry pronounces it). Egged on by Rubberneck, Harry fatally chokes two prostitutes (mutilating and having anal sex with their bodies afterward) and stabs his psychiatrist to death.

Gowan McGland (Tom Conti) is a creatively blocked Scottish poet who ekes out a day-to-day existence by exploiting the generosity of strangers in an affluent Connecticut suburb, where he recites his verse to various arts groups and women's clubs. Gowan is something of a leech, cadging expensive dinners from well-off patrons (usually stealing the tips afterward) while seducing their bored wives and affecting a superior attitude toward the smug bourgeois types he exploits.
