Pretty disturbing Richard Kern's short.
13 March 2005 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

'The Cinema of Transgression' was a small underground film scene in New York.Richard Kern along with Nick Zedd were the most prominent and widely known directors from that scene."Fingered" is possibly Richard Kern's most shocking and unsettling short film.It features punk rock queen Lydia Lunch as the phone sex operator.After a violent and explicit sexual encounter with one of her phone sex clients,the two set out on a rampage of murder,brutality and attempted rape leaving the viewer aroused and disgusted."Fingered" is mildly shocking by today's standards,but having seen such fare like "August Underground's Mordum","Scrapbook" or "Niku Daruma" I wasn't particularly offended.Still if you like them nasty and violent you won't be disappointed.7 out of 10.
