"Dyn Amo, by Stephen Dwoskin, is a ’drama’ exploring the distinction between a person’s self and his projection of that self to others; and it’s a ‘horror movie’ tragically suggesting how a projection can become more substantial than the self behind it. Its subjects are role-playing (especially sexual role-playing), and the masochism of playing a role that conforms to others’ exploitative interests."–Tony Rayns.
It's formative and necessary and a part of things to know about the tenderness, vulgarity, violence and selflessness that we're capable of at any one moment and in any one emotional sexual involvement. DYN AMO is a film about all this, taking as its setting a strip-club, and as its subjects a series of strippers and their 'admirers.' -Ros Spain Free and intimist, sensual and cerebral, experimental and political, Dwoskin's cinema is heir to the surrealists and Georges Bataille, to Andy Warhol and Jack Smith. -Isabelle Regnier
