Eating Raoul Trailer-1982
I just love the late Paul Bartel! Whether as director or actor, he was always a unique presence on a film. This one, EATING RAOUL, he wrote directed AND stars in. It's a black comedy with the proverbial something to offend everybody. It also has a great cast of crazies including Bartel's frequent co-star (and no, they were NEVER married), Mary Woronov, Robert (STAR TREK: VOYAGER) Beltran, Ed Begley (how long does he have to carry "Jr"?), Hamilton Camp and even some Groundling folk like Edie McClurg (now aFacebook friend) and John Paragon. It's about sex...and cannibalism...and murder...and middle class American values. It's also hilarious!
