About The Telephone Book

Year Released:
Comedy, Experimental
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)
