Home / Now Showing / EATING RAOUL
A sleeper hit of the early 1980s, EATING RAOUL is a bawdy, gleefully amoral tale of conspicuous consumption among the middle class. Warhol superstar Mary Woronov and cult legend Paul Bartel portray a prudish married couple put upon by the swingers living in their apartment building. One night, they discover a way to simultaneously rid themselves of the “perverts” down the hall and realize their dream of opening a family restaurant. A mix of hilarious, anything-goes slapstick and biting satire of San Fernando-style self-indulgence, EATING RAOUL marked the end of the sexual revolution with a thwack.
