“Cavallone made his masterpiece with this 1978 film, a sort of BLOW-UP as written by George Bataille and directed by Guy Debord…Much more than just a curiosity for compulsive Italian B-movie fans, BLUE MOVIE is a singular mixture of Situationist polemic, genre deconstruction, and zero budget auteurism.” – Film Comment
Not to be confused with the claustrophobic Warhol film of the same name, BLUE MOVIE is an almost unplaceable genre exercise in trauma and perverse affection. Perhaps the most visually distinctive of the three films in this series, BLUE MOVIE pairs Silvia, grief stricken after an attempted rape, with her rescuer, a mysterious photographer by the name of Claudio, who has some skeletons of his own. What emerges is a bizarre love affair along two parallel tracks of madness.
[Trigger Warning: Repeated scenes of attempted rape.]
