NUDE ON THE MOON
Tuesday, June 7
Directed by Doris Wishman
(1961) Rich Lester Brown builds his own rocket to a moon populated solely by topless ETs. Banned in NY: a nudist in an actual colony was okay, but not one in a fantasy film. 35mm. Approx. 83 mins.
“THE FEMALE ED WOOD! Nonsensical editing choices, including cutaways to paintings and ashtrays, overdubbed dialogue, gratuitous violence and nudity, and the exploitation of innocent women aplenty, a Doris Wishman film is titillating, odd, and endearing at the same time. WISHMAN’S FILMS EXIST ON THEIR OWN TERMS!”
