FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 – MIDNIGHT – DIRECTOR IN ATTENDANCE!
Dir. Scooter McCrae, 1999
USA, 80 minutes.
WARNING - Explicit sexual content and violence
So many films claim to address the oversexed, technological nature of our modern age, but barely any ever take their content to the extreme necessary to actually communicate a serious, original idea. SIXTEEN TONGUES, Scooter McCrae’s follow-up to his classic SHATTER DEAD, is perhaps the most significant film ever made on the subject of porn and technology – it’s certainly the most intense and the most original. Made in 1999, SIXTEEN TONGUES takes place in a make-shift future world where graphic, dehumanizing, porn is constantly at our fingertips (seems unbelievable, right!?). In a dream-like blur we follow our hero and villains down their action-film trajectory, witness to as well as their harrowing dreams and visions. This is an inspired, low-budget work so aggressively personal and visionary that we’re essentially forced to redefine the overused term “transgressive art.”
