“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”

Frankenhooker Two


The fact that a piece of crap like ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ picked up four Oscar Awards in 1990 and the much superior ‘Frankenhooker’ didn’t even get nominated is a goddam’ travesty. Director Frank Henenlotter could easily have made the terminally dull DMD but could Bruce Beresford have directed a classic like Frankenhooker? I think not! Also, I seriously doubt that he could have persuaded Jessica Tandy to paint her nipples purple like Frank did with Patti Mullen, so Frank is obviously much more talented.
As is Patti who, incidentally, should have picked up ‘Best Actress’ as well!
