TRASH and WOMEN IN REVOLT

TRASH

(1970) The story of Joe and his girlfriend Holly, but even busty Geri Miller can’t get a rise out of junkie Joe Dallesandro, whose quest for a fix leads him to bizarrely-accented Jane Forth’s apartment and back to his scavenger roommate Holly Woodlawn. Approx. 110 min. 35mm.

*Q&A with Paul Morrissey following 5:30 screening

 

"A rude-tempered, wickedly funny comedy. There's nary a bum performance… The frazzled, cracked-glass-Cassavetes close-ups Morrissey bequeathed to Holly Woodlawn's talent caught the eye of none other than George Cukor, who started an ultimately unsuccessful petition campaign in support of an Oscar nomination (one that was signed by, among others, Cassavetes player Ben Gazzara). Oscars, schmoscars. To call Holly's performance one of the very greatest in all of cinema would be an understatement."
–  Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine

“A masterpiece... Brilliant, funny, tragic, moving... Best film of the year.”
– Rolling Stone

TRASH and WOMEN IN REVOLT

WOMEN IN REVOLT

(1971) Superstars Holly Woodlawn, Candy Darling and Jackie Curtis give up men, become lesbians and attempt careers (“long before the now extremely fashionable Women’s Lib movement” – Morrissey), only to wind up either on the casting couch, the Bowery gutters or in parenthood with Mr. America. Approx. 97 min. 16mm.
3:30, 7:40

 

"This 1971 showcase for Candy Darling, Holly Woodlawn and Jackie Curtis starts as a parody of feminist righteousness and ends up as a Factory-fueled total freak-out. The pond scum on the city’s soon-to-be-cresting creative wave, this cocktail of downtown deadpan and drag-queen histrionics proves that the movement’s subversive fronts were just as vital as its more composed brethren."
– David Fear, Time Out New York

 “A madcap soap opera, as hilarious as it is dirty.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
