“List’s film is a breath of fresh air (and ) very very funny.” *Variety *
Set in the microcosm of an early-night spot in a dreary suburb, a young woman bartender prepares drinks before the patrons even arrive. Her concoctions are full of personal venom (and other odd ingredients), she greets patrons ranging from the femme fatale, to the country hick, to academic Marxist hotheads. Shining with pop icons, this film is filled with sight gags, little dialogue, and an enthusiastic tone.
Dir. Niki Lis, 1982
