Come on now! Am I the only one? This is one of my favorite pieces of New York underground cinema. Donna Death is beautiful, what happened to her? The 'plot' is about some punk chickie (Ms Death) who is the singer of some band but I can't remember their name. Her brother is a transvestite who does nasty things with the family dog. Then there's some cloning/end of the world type subplot thing with giant insects. The editing is awful (I thought mine was bad but now I feel better) and some of the film was shot using the wrong speed. The sets and atmosphere are wonderful and the opening sequence is masterful. There are some great still-shots and televangelist stock footage. This movie could never be made today (like TAXI DRIVER) 'cause New York is nice and clean now. This is probably hard to find but if you can, get it. If you enjoy it (I dare you!) then see also Jean-Luc Godard's WEEKEND.
