Midnights: THE APPLE
June 30 @ 11:55 pm
“It belongs to the curious subset of movies so all-consumingly druggy and surreal that they make audiences feel baked out of their minds even when they’re stone-cold sober.” – The A.V. Club
“If you believe in God, be prepared to question His existence, for no compassionate deity would ever allow such a monstrosity to be made (would He?).” – TheMovieReport.com
“A completely unadulterated bundle of the worst of cinema all spun up into one ball of madness. It cannot be described, and it can barely be experienced.” – Antagony & Ecstasy
Young singers Alphie (George Gilmour) and Bibi (Catherine Mary Stewart) have big musical dreams when they leave Canada to compete in the Worldvision Song Festival. Though the festival’s organizer, Mr. Boogalow (Vladek Sheybal), rigs the contest for others to win, he shows an interest in Alphie and Bibi, offering to sign them. But then Bibi is taken in by the evil, wild world of rock ‘n’ roll, and Alphie is determined to save her — even though Boogalow says he owns both her and her soul.
Dir. Menaham Golan. 1980. 90 min.
