The Lickerish Quartet Review


Good
Often touted as Metzger's best movie, The Lickerish Quartet is at the least a departure from his straight-up eroto-soft-core-porn work. Here Metzger ups the art cred of the film to a level that would make Andy Warhol blush, setting sex scenes in silence in fields and in a library where the floor is wallpapered (floorpapered?) with dictionary entries of naughty words.

The story itself is a bust: Four people in a proper British manor couple in various formations; the blonde girl they (mother, father, and son) picked up at the local fair because she looks like the girl in the sex film they like to watch. The ending doesn't quite pay off the promise of epic violence or a bizarre coupling... instead the film serves mainly as mood music for its entire running time.
