Go-Go Motel

Dan Bell presents his Baltimore epic of titty-bar squalor behind a Grindhouse-style scrim of picture flaws—scratches, dirt, blackouts, refocusing. The three vacuous heroines perform at a go-go bar, turn tricks for extra cash, and live nearby in a decrepit hotel where all manner of outrages occur (including a grisly bathroom abortion). Bell's low-life cruelty is prosaic at best, but his video casts a spell of sorts with its eerie black-and-white sequences of low-fi imagery backed by Patsy Cline, Johnny Mathis, and other 60s balladeers. 73 min.
