The Lickerish Quartet

Directed by Radley Metzger
Italy, United States, 1970
Drama, Avant-Garde, Erotica
  • English
  • No subtitles


A wealthy couple and their adult son meet a beautiful stuntwoman at a carnival who resembles a woman they had just seen in a pornographic film. Always up for adventure, the three invite her back to their mansion.

Our take

The death of censorship in some countries left a brief hope that erotic films could become legitimate cinema, and within this Radley Metzger was a celebrated, scandalous practitioner. This 1970 gem doubles as sly meta-commentary, which Warhol proclaimed a masterpiece. Where you land is up to you.
