Vivienne Dick No Wave Cinema - Beauty Becomes the Beast [1979]



I just finished watching this and figured some of you would dig it too. Starring Lydia Lunch, though you'll probably recognize a few other names in the credits if you're into any of the no wave shit from end-of -the-seventies NYC. Starts off a bit slow but it's worth the watch. There is some great imagery of the city in the gutter here. Being a no wave movie, you'd be foolish to expect much real plot, but the themes of anti-patriarchy and urban decay are clearly present.  The soundtrack is superb as well. If numbers are important to you this has an 8.8 on IMDb (only five votes but hey). Runs approx. 45 min.
