The Jar (Bruce Toscano, 1984)

In Nightmare USA: The Untold Story of the Exploitation Independents, Stephen Thrower has a pretty silly reading of the fascinating art-nonsense film The Jar as an allegory of repressed homosexuality. At least it seemed pretty silly until I saw the thing - lots of cruising shots, an ineffectual relationship with a woman, scenes of homosociality, etc. And this is not to mention the jar itself onto which the viewer can pin any reading.
