Overview

Paul Morrissey wrote and directed this acerbic look at women's liberation (produced by longtime patron Andy Warhol), which comes to DVD in a well-executed if unspectacular edition from Image Entertainment. Women in Revolt has been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1; originally shot in 16 mm, this transfer doesn't do much to disguise the grain of the image, but the colors are bold and vibrant and the visuals are as sharp and clear as the original materials allow. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Mono, and like the picture is more than a bit haphazard in spots, though the mastering here makes the most of the original materials. The dialogue is in English, with no subtitles or multiple language options. Bonus materials include a collection of outtakes and a gallery of still photos, both of which are accompanied by a commentary track by Paul Morrissey, who shares his memories of the cast members (the three leading female roles were played by female impersonators and Warhol regulars Candy Darling, Holly Woodlawn, and Jackie Curtis) and of working with Warhol. If this disc doesn't always look or sound pristine, it's certainly an accurate reflection of what Women in Revolt was like in its initial release, and it does rank a few notches up from previous video releases of the film.
