Movie Review: Dangerous Men

Any aficionado of L.A cult movie offerings worth his or her salt has come to appreciate both Phil Blankenship of Ameoba Records' series of midnight putridity at the New Beverly Cinema and the skewed, truly debased programming of Hadrian Belove of the Silent Theater.

Saturday night, these two titans of trash joined forces to expose a wider audience to Dangerous Men. By a show of hands, only about 10 members of the audience at the well-attended midnight showing had seen the film. Speaking for the rest of us virgins that night, we may never be the same.

As Belove remarked in his introduction to the movie, the less that's known about it the better. So I won't attempt to describe the plot. But the fact is, trying to actually follow this movie's internal logic while watching it would, at the least, preclude enjoyment, and at the worst result in seizures.
