THE LICKERISH QUARTET

10:10

Monday, December 11

Directed by Radley Metzger

(1970) After watching an erotic movie, a filthy rich couple and their adult son invite home from a carnival Silvana Venturelli, seemingly one of the film’s performers – and then things get very complicated in a kind of soft-core melding of Teorema and Last Year at Marienbad. 35mm. Approx. 90 min.

Reviews

“An outrageously kinky masterpiece.”
– Andy Warhol

“Ripe with incredible color and décor and movement.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“One of The Lickerish Quartet’s overriding concerns is the capacity for the cinema to acknowledge and satisfy desires.”
– Zach Campbell, Slant
