IU CINEMA: "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls"
A sequel in name only, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is the satirical tale of an all-girl rock band that goes to Hollywood to make it big. There they find success, but not without melodramatically sinking into a cesspool of decadent transgressions, each more libidinal than the previous. The first of three films Russ Meyer and Roger Ebert co-scripted, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls was in Ebert’s reflections “like a move that got made by accident when the lunatics took over the asylum.” Contains mature content, including nudity, violence, and drug references. No one younger than 17 will be admitted. (2K DCP Presentation)
