"LUNCH". FEATURING UNDERGROUND LEGEND GEORGE KUCHAR!! A MUST FOR
UNDERGROUND AND GAY INTEREST FILM COLLECTORS. INCLUDES THE
FOLLOWING FILMS:
CONFESSIONS:
"Just as outrageous is Curt McDowell's CONFESSIONS. McDowell, a
graduate student at San Francisco Art Institute, opens his film
with a confession to his mother and father, listing in exhausting
detail his sins of the flesh."
1971, 16mm, b&w/so, 16m
LOADS:
"San Francisco-based Curt McDowell has always been a pioneer in
sexual frankness, but his new film, LOADS, goes far beyond his
earlier all-out efforts and puts such big-time dabblers in
eroticism as Bernardo Bertolucci and Nagisa Oshima decidedly in the
shade." - David Ehrenstein,
Los Angeles Herald Examiner
1980, 16mm,
b&w/so, 22m
A VISIT TO INDIANA:
"... it is not only very funny, but perfectly designed to
satirize the Midwestern life style. The film may be no more than a
sound track, but even if you listen with your eyes closed, you
should enjoy it." -
LA Free Press
"A powerful, controversial film for discussion in senior high
school language arts and social studies classes and college courses
in sociology and psychology. Also for public library film programs
and loan to groups interested in films heavy with social comment.
Ages 16 to adult." -
The Booklist, American Library Association
1970, 16mm, color/so, 10m
BOGGY DEPOT:
A rural operetta starring Ainslie Pryor and George Kuchar,
told through song and rhyme.
"I was glad to see Curt McDowell's BOGGY DEPOT win an
award, since it was the funniest film in the festival, an off-key
musical parody of
West Side Story ...." -
Michigan Daily
"In BOGGY DEPOT, Curt McDowell and Mark Ellinger, aided by
lampooned ballads and broad, properly hammy acting, mercilessly rib
the romantic musical genre." -
The New York Times
1974, 16mm, b&w/so, 17m
NAUGHTY WORDS:
"... WORDS was a Curt McDowell work covering the gamut of
cinematic profanity."
1974, 16mm, b&w/so, 3m, $20
