About The Telephone Book
- Year Released:
- Comedy, Experimental
- Directed by Nelson Lyon
A brilliant satire of 1970s pornography, The Telephone Book
tells the story
of Alice, a young woman who falls in love with an obscene telephone caller
and wanders the streets of New York trying to find him. Her journey takes her
through a laundry list of encounters with a diverse selection of sex-obsessed
characters, from a stag filmmaker planning his comeback to a deranged housewife.
Recently restored, Nelson Lyon’s The Telephone Book
is an avant-garde
gem that is at once a celebration, caricature, and critique of early theatrical
pornography. (2K DCP presentation)
