This investigation compares the gender roles and sexualities presented in Sabina Berman's El bigote to those in film, incorporating into the analysis ideas from theorists such as Laura Mulvey, Ann Kaplan, Luisa Valenzuela, Hélène Cixous, and Luce Irigaray to demonstrate that Berman subverts mainstream Hollywood filmic mechanisms such as the male gaze to undermine and question extant gender roles and sexualities.
