Blood (1975) 16mm, DVD NTSC, color, 21.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: political_social activism

Starring Larry Fine, Abbie Herrick, Evan McHale, Mark Lyon and Annie Sharkiss. A funny, bitter look at middle-class youth trying to be tough in the trappings of pornography, drugs and quick money. A film about desperation in the New York streets. "In its stream-of-consciousness way, BLOOD (1975) evokes Manhattan street life even more powerfully than Martin Scorcese's Taxi Driver. Ms. Krasilovsky brings into camera an array of furtive, frustrated people -- e. g., hookers and juvenile delinquents -- and allows them to talk about themselves as we watch them in action. As a depiction of contemporary urban despair, BLOOD, more specifically, is an angry, outraged protest of the exploitation of women by men. Indeed, this 21-minute film is punctuated by shots of the covers of lurid paperbacks featuring bondage and framed by an embittered theme song, 'Women in Chains.'" -- Kevin Thomas, The Los Angeles Times
