Joseph Losey, 1968

“[Boom!] really personifies my taste. I used to show it on first dates. If they didn’t like it, I didn’t go out with them.”—John Waters

A jaw-dropping cult classic waiting to be discovered, Boom! might mark the low point of the career of many great artists: stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, director Joseph Losey (The Servant, The Go-Between), and Tennessee Williams, whose screenplay adapts his poorly received play The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore. With its over-the-top dialogue, mindboggling production design and costumes, and Noel Coward as “The Witch of Capri,” this film transcends the “so bad it’s good” category. What better way to get in the mood for GenWex’s Off the Grid extravaganza, later the same night? (110 mins., 35mm)
