Criterion Tube: There’s Something About Mary

On Film / Short Takes — Oct 2, 2012

Mary Woronov first hit the scene as a Warhol superstar. (A great clip of her in a screen test for Warhol is a subject for a whole other post.) In honor of the release of Paul Bartel’s Eating Raoul, which Mary stars in, here she is interviewed by a childhood friend, the cult New York City cable access host Coca Crystal, on a very strange, casual, light-blue set. The screen within a screen is a surreal element for sure. Also interviewed is Eating Raoulsceenwriter Richard Blackburn. Note when the interviewer asks Richard if it is true that he was under the influence of marijuana while writing the script. You be the judge! And oh, wow—a discussion of Mary’s first bra!
