Watch Llik Your Idols
- 1 hr 15 min
LLIK YOUR IDOLS plunges you right into the New York undergound scene of the nineteen-eighties. Through steamy excerpts, exclusive interviews (RICHARD KERN, LYDIA LUNCH, JOE COLEMAN, THURSTON MOORE...), in-your-face performances and previously unreleased photographs, LLIK YOUR IDOLS retraces the chaotic story of transgressive cinema. In New York, in the beginning of the nineteen-eighties, this spontaneous movement, monster child of Reaganism, definitively broke free of the codes set by avantgardism and the classic conventions of storytelling. As ephemeral as a suicide, as sensual as it is sexual, transgressive cinema created for itself improbable links between WARHOL, DADAISM and THE PUNK ATTITUDE. KERN, ZED, LUNCH, STARK and COLEMAN, antiheroes of a lost generation, were its leading actors. SONIC YOUTH, THE SWANS, FA'TUS and THE BUTTHOLE SURFERS were its leading bands.
