Richard Kern – Manhattan Love Suicides (1985)
‘Manhattan Love Suicides’ is made up of four, separate but roughly thematically connected, segments.
‘Stray Dogs’ concerns an artist (William Rice) being followed through the Manhattan streets by an obsessive young man (David Wojnarowicz) who tries to gain his attention. He follows the artist back to his apartment and begins literally tearing himself apart in frustration – at which point the artist laughs at him, and begins to sketch his dying body.
‘Woman at the Wheel’ follows a woman who takes her boyfriends (one at a time) for a drive; but they only spark arguments and insist on taking the wheel.
‘Thrust in Me’ stars Nick Zedd as both a suicidal girl and her thrusting boyfriend. Includes a camera trick orgasm of monumental proportions.
‘I Hate You Now’ features Tommy Turner as a facially deformed drug dealer and Amy Turner as his girlfriend. This segment repeatedly taunts the notions of deformity and ugliness before ending in a serious iron-burn and a barbell suicide.
