Linda Simpson presents EATING RAOUL

  • IFC Center 323 6th Avenue New York, NY, 10014 United States (map)

1982. 90 min. Directed by Paul Bartel

Paul and Mary Bland live in an apartment building full of swingers, but this uptight couple finds sex repulsive and their living situation even worse. Until, of course, they come up with an absurdly diabolical scheme to profit off it…! Gay director and star Paul Bartel’s 1982 cult camp classic shares a subversive sensibility with this night’s presenter Linda Simpson (hilarious hostess, bingo queen, and drag herstorian). Linda writes, “I love that the film is so politically incorrect, but in such a ridiculous manner that it’s impossible to be offended. Plus Mary Woronov is hilarious and sexy, which is the type of drag queen I’ve always aspired to be.”
