Avant-Garde, Erotica


As odd, dark and meandering McDowell’s best-known film is – the one-of-a-kind Thundercrack! – Lunch is relatively light-hearted, fast-paced fun!

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Lunch

    Nothing remotely "avant-garde" about this. Slightly quirky and totally homemade doesn't save this no-budget porn film or endow it with a shred of artistic merit. The only reason I can imagine that it was made is that it recouped its under $1000 budget the first week it ran in the grindhouses, because the raincoat crowd isn't very discriminating, and there were 2 other features on the bill anyway.
