The Mammal Palace

(1969, 16mm, B&W, Sound, 31min.)

The movie takes a rather negative look at things despite the fact that it was shot in reversal film. It depicts the turbulent relationships of disturbed individuals existing on various levels of an apartment house. Donna Kerness and her husband Hopeton Morris are lurid together and they are also pretty lurid when they're alone.

“The Kuchar theme remains sexual frustration. The hero is as fucked up as ever, and we are again treated to the voluptuous Donna Kerness, and the blubber of a fat Bronx woman in search of men.” – Lenny Lipton, Berkeley BARB
