A Gun for Jennifer is a ballsy, energetic feminist revisionist take on the traditionally male revenge action film. After a successful festival run, it has seen comparisons to such female revenge films as Ms. 45 and Thelma and Louise , though it has as much in common with earlier American classics The Wild Bunch and Bonnie and Clyde . Such comparisons hold tenuously, but A Gun for Jennifer surpasses these progenitors at the level of explicit violence and conviction. Though confined by the revenge action genre, it surpasses most with its tight script and solid performances. The film tells the story of a group of angry women (an understatement) who work at a strip bar which fronts as a hang out and planning headquarter for their methodical vigilantism (reminiscent of the hood-run bar in Scorsese’s Mean Streets ). No rapist, misogynist or femme-abuser, whether low-level street thug or well-guarded mafioso, is safe from their collective wrath.... like a feminist twist on Travis Bickle’s tortured attempt to rid the streets of its dirt and grime. Surprisingly, the film has yet to procure North American distribution. It's a sad comment on the independent scene when such a frank, vibrant, crowd pleasing film that does not compromise on its politics or viscerality is met with closed doors. Its single screening at Montreal's Fant-Asia Festival was a screaming success. The 900 plus sell-out crowd at the regal Imperial theatre cheered, laughed and emoted at all the right moments, and carried their enthusiasm into the theatre lobby mobbing the slightly perplexed writer/producer/actress and director team of Deborah Twiss and Todd Morris for autographs and questions. Peter Rist and Donato Totaro conducted the following interview with Deborah Twiss and Todd Morris in-between band sets at the noisy Cafe Sarayevo.
This is one of a pile of trades i got,and i aint watched it yet.As you can see,the pic aint great,but from what i've read,thats the norm,seemingly it was not available for years for various reasons,and this quality is the best there is.
