Who would you call to perform a range of genders? For the last 30 years, there’s never been a better androgynous god(dess) than Tilda Swinton, and our screen siren does no better in showcasing this than in Lynn Hershman Leeson’s glorious sci-fi parable.

When a scientist, Rosetta Stone (Swinton), injects her DNA into cyborg clones, their survival becomes based on a supply of the Y chromosome (in the form of semen) to keep them alive. Unfortunately, the cyborg’s jaunts for juice launch a virus that overtakes both the bodies of their suitors and computers, creating a mess in the world of  technology and men. The ever-evolving Tilda Swinton takes on multiple roles in this beautiful, energetic wonder from Leeson, further highlighting the icon as one of the most adaptable performers of gender identity in modern cinema.
