Performance artist/confrontationist icon Lydia Lunch delivers a brutally frank manifesto in this journey through the heart of contemporary American darkness. Lydia's poetic nihilism is set against a barrage of real-lif...展开e street-action, scenery, news footage, and the deranged music of J. G. Thirlwell.
At the end of the Reagan years, rocker and confrontational performance artist Lydia Lunch launches a broadside. From a formal podium, she attacks the white male power structure of the US. Next she takes on her parents. Then, the volume lowered and the background the streets of New York, she lets us know what she thinks of life, of herself, and of us, anyone who's watching or listening. Life is depression, despair, and death. She's the girl next door gone bad. And us? Compliant sheep. Lunch lays out a challenge.
Do you want a buxom foul-mouthed loud punk-rocker chick spewing rage and doom at you? I thought so, then this is the featurette for you. You complacent beer swilling couch potato- hey, wait that's me !
