Samenvatting

Christine, a bright and unassuming young woman, takes a job selling tickets at a porno theater near Times Square. Instead of distancing herself from the dark and erotic nature of this milieu, Christine soon develops an obsession that begins to consume her life.

Onze opvatting

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re spotlighting Bette Gordon’s trailblazing New York indie. Ingeniously inverting Taxi Driver, it’s a brilliant story of a woman trying to find meaning (and a livelihood) in a lonely life in a grimy city. One of the best evocations of New York put to film.

Bette Gordon’s singular 1983 film Variety goes beyond being a mere document of its era, calling into question representation of desire and filmmaking conventions that persist to this day… Probing but never didactic, Gordon’s film is a unique feminist thought experiment that doubles as love letter to Fear City–era New York.
