Take Away

Todd Verow's 72-minute video follows cult-film star Philly from the arms of a sometime boyfriend in the States to a film shoot in an unnamed German city. Though scripted by Philly, Verow, and producer Jim Dwyer, it plays like a rambling documentary: Philly provides voice-over about her marriage, her past lovers, her quest for autonomy and adventure, and her increasing sense of isolation, while the camera shows her masturbating in a coin-op lavatory, drinking champagne alone in a bar, dancing alone at a disco, and licking and fondling the urinals in a men's room. This faux-diva is utterly self-absorbed, but her vulnerability and her decency toward others make her sympathetic.
