Prime Cut (1972)

Grindhouse motifs enter the slaughterhouse for a Nixon-era satire encased in the timeless language of mob pictures. When Chicago tough guy Nick Devlin (Lee Marvin) arrives in Kansas City to collect on a debt from meatpacker Mary Ann (Gene Hackman), Nick quickly learns he’s bitten off more than he can chew: this packing plant is also home to a human “meat market,” selling doped-up young girls (including Sissy Spacek) into sex slavery. As the war in Vietnam comes to a close offscreen, director Michael Ritchie posits the American heartland as a fertile battleground in the ongoing war of everyday existence.

Charles Taylor will be joined on stage by Los Angeles Times film critic Justin Chang for a post-screening conversation.
