TRIPLE FISHER: LETHAL LOLITAS OF LONG ISLAND (2012) ($8)
Friday, January 18th @ 8pm
East Coast Premiere! Followed by Skype Q&A with Dan Kapelovitz
2012 – directed by Dan Kapelovitz – starring Drew Barrymore, Alyssa Milano, and Nöelle Parker
In 1992, a teenager named Amy Fisher shot her lover’s wife in the face. This sordid tale of underage sex, aggravated assault, and Joey Buttafuoco spawned not one, but three, made-for-TV movies—a television first. Drew Barrymore, Alyssa Milano, and Nöelle Parker each took stabs at portraying the “Long Island Lolita,” yet a true depiction of Amy Fisher never emerged….until now. In this RASHOMON of found footage cinema, director Dan Kapelovitz (THREEE GENIUSES) mind melds the multiple melodramas into one ultimate metadrama—a scathing critique yet celebration of early-’90s tabloid culture, 20 years in the making.
Bonus! Screening to be followed by two episodes of Dan Kapelovitz’s THREEE GENIUSES: THE RE-DEATH OF PSYCHEDELIA (2009), rightfully dubbed “the most intentionally psychedelic show on cable tv” (LA Weekly)
