WIN The Criterion Collection Edition of Eating Raoul

A sleeper hit of the early 1980s, Eating Raoul is a bawdy, gleefully amoral tale of conspicuous consumption.  Warhol superstar MARY WORONOV and cult legend PAUL BARTEL (who also directed) portray a prudish married couple feeling put upon by the swingers who live in their apartment building; one night, by accident, they discover a way to simultaneously realize their dream of opening a little restaurant and rid themselves of the “perverts” down the hall. A mix of hilarious, anything-goes slapstick and biting satire of me-generation self-indulgence, Eating Raoulmarks the end of the sexual revolution with a thwack.
