Weird Wednesday

Director Giuseppe Patroni Griffi
Year 1974
Starring Elizabeth Taylor, Andy Warhol
Run Time 102min
More Info IMDb

Super rare, unbelievably weird artsploitation starring Elizabeth Taylor as a spiritually lost woman on a search for the perfect man in a cold, hostile Rome. The movie's sense of icy alienation would be unbearable if it weren't for Taylor grabbing hold of every scene like a great white shark and shaking all the meat out of it. Sample dialogue from Liz: ""When I diet, I diet - and when I orgasm, I orgasm!" She wanders (a lot), seduces men, rants, argues, and is generally impossible to take your eyes off of. With a complicated, pretentious narrative structure and what sounds like improvised dialogue. Featuring Andy Warhol, of course. (Lars)
