Andy Warhol's Bad (1977)
Night Warning, Forbidden Zone) character, who sits around all day eating and holding her retarded baby.
Speaking of baby's, in the most infamous scene a mother throws her baby out of a window in a city skyscraper. The baby comes crashing upon the city sidewalks, complete with bright red 70's blood which pours from the baby's shattered achy-breaky skull. In another memorable scene a fat slob of a woman with gas pays two of the female assassins to kill Lawrence Tierney's dog because she thinks he was talking about her legs.
Aside from people who grew up on punk rock, fans of trash cinema, especially the works of John Waters (Pink Flamingo's, Mondo Trasho) will also get a kick out of this. Bad is funny, raunchy and offensive at the same time. It is a sleazy look into a city that no longer knows right from wrong. It is really just one big dark social message that hides nothing from its audience. Sex, violence and moral decay is all her on display.
