Review: The Telephone Book (1971)

Straight out of the bobblin’ underground scene of New York in the early 70’s, with Andy Warhol poppin’ in on the set, this rare little original piece of arty sleazery came to life.

“Hello there! I would like to talk to you for a moment…about your beautiful tits.”

When the worlds best “obscene dirty-caller” suddenly calls young miss Alice, she gets so aroused that she gets on a mission to track him down. And through a lot of weird meetings along the way, she finds him. And what a crazy ending!

An avantgardish roller-coaster of a low-budget movie. This is original, crazy, funny, sexy, artistic and original the whole way. And what a theme to make a movie about. A little too much monologue slows down the pace. But I really enjoyed the ride. Well done Vinegar Syndrome!
