WEIRD WEEKEND III: Triple Fisher: The Lethal Lolitas of Long Island
Sat 29 October 2022
In 1992, Long Island teenager Amy Fisher ignited a media firestorm when she shot the wife of her lover, Joey Buttafuoco, in the face. This sordid tale of sex, aggravated assault, and Zubaz managed to spawn not one, not two, but three separate made-for-TV movies – a television first! Drew Barrymore, Alyssa Milano, and Noëlle Parker all took stabs at portraying the disturbed teen in each movie, yet a true on-screen depiction of Amy Fisher never emerged. Until now. In this Rashomon of found footage film, director Dan Kapelovitz (Threee Geniuses) mind-melds all three Amy Fisher movies into one ultimate meta-melodramatic mashup that’s both a scathing critique and celebration of early-’90s tabloid culture.
Screening as part of Weird Weekend’s Squint strand.
