An art student is thrown out of college. Depressed, he comes up with the Party of Dynamic Erection, a near fascist "party" that promotes male sexual dominance and which attracts a couple of other unsavory confused characters.
If you get the opportunity to see this film, it is really worthwhile.
I saw this film in 1983 just after it had been made. I saw it at Cardiff Art School which is the same college Chris Monger studied at. It's an atmospheric film shot in 16mm and my memory of it is that it was Chris Monger's first film after leaving college and as such it's a great movie. Unfortunately my memory of the plot is not too good, but I can say that the character of 'Fats' Bannerman played by Ian McNeice has stuck in my memory strongly. Bannerman is a radio host/VO artist and is played really competently. The viewer is drawn into that world of late night broadcasting. He has gone on since Voice Over to play a whole heap of other roles in successful films including Chris Monger's most famous film 'The Englishman Who Went up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain'
