Performers, Cast and Crew:
Paul Morrissey (FLESH, TRASH, HEAT) caps off his stinging string of tongue-in-cheek critiques and portraits of the sex-and-drugs-drenched
woes of modern society with the Warhol-Superstar-studded WOMEN IN REVOLT.
Otherworldly trans-gendered beauties Holly Woodlawn, Jackie Curtis, and Candy Darling play the trio of ladies who collide in their attempts to free themselves from their respective ruts while launching a revolutionary feminist group called PIGS (Politically Involved Girls). The three women come from different walks of life--Holly the slut, Jackie the housewife, and Candy the socialite. They share shambling encounters that feature nonstop rhetorical babbling that both mocks and pays tribute to the women's rights movement. Men are present as pathetic houseboys, worthless relatives, and scheming hustlers as the girls argue their way to liberation, only to be
undone by the forces of men. Letting the three extravagant personalities unfurl before the camera, Morrissey continues with his Warhol-influenced aesthetic, creating the story with their improvisations, evocative mannerisms, and inspired gestures. With smart, subversive humor, Morrissey and his three superstars create a compelling, if hilarious, parable of women's plight.
