Mod Explosion

NR, 75 min. Directed by Jon Moritsugu. Starring Amy Davis, Desi Del Valle.

Not reviewed at press time. San Francisco filmmaker Jon Moritsugu (Hippy Porn, My Degeneration) here presents another assault on American culture. This parodic Romeo and Juliet tale is the story oif a couple of young lovers named London and M16 who can't get together because of all the social muck that's in their way. Intentionally bad in terms of its aesthetics, the movie's objectives are to shock and appall. From all advance reports, Mod Explosion is quite a success.
