"A gateway drug for all sorts of bliss."
—Joseph A. Ziemba, BLEEDING SKULL!
No one will ever make movies like Doris Wishman made movies. One of the most prolific women filmmakers in the history of American cinema, writer-director-editor Wishman created DIY collisions between surrealism and exploitation that feel like they materialized from an alternate universe. DEADLY WEAPONS—the biggest hit of Wishman's career and her first collaboration with the iconic Chesty Morgan—finds advertising executive Crystal (Morgan) seeking revenge against the mob . . . by smothering the gangsters with her otherworldly bust. A dreamlike collision between the melodramatics of Douglas Sirk and the subversive wildness of John Waters, DEADLY WEAPONS has been newly restored in 2K from its original 35mm camera negative.
