Shucking the Curve

Todd Verow
(1998, video, 90 min)

A frantic trip through the Lower East Side underworld and the hipsters, drug addicts, club kids, and drag queens who inhabit it, SHUCKING THE CURVE is the most dizzying work yet by Todd Verow, digital video's new enfant terrible. Cinematographer for Gregg Araki and Jon Moritsuga, Verow (FRISK, A LITTLE SHOT OF HAPPINESS) is emerging as the DIY master of the digital medium, combining an improvisational free-form shooting technique with a warped Warhol/Fassbinder aesthetic culled from and for the hovels of the avant-garde. Small-town girl Suzanne moves to the city and quickly embarks on a magical mystery tour filled with speed freaks, bisexual gigolos, earth mothers, suitcase thieves and performance artists, each living in their own slightly-addled wonderlands while always, always searching for a decent apartment. Patched together with a soundtrack of Japanese pop and ambient electronica, SHUCKING THE CURVE embodies the freedom of the new digital revolution. --Jason Sanders
