Preserved by Anthology Film Archives, with support from the National Film Preservation Foundation and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, KIDNAPPED—Eric Mitchell’s 1978 remake of Warhol’s Vinyl—is a downtown saga starring Anya Phillips, Patti Astor, Duncan Smith, Gordon Stevenson, and the director, and screens in conjunction with the MoMA exhibition CLUB 57: FILM, PERFORMANCE, AND ART IN THE EAST VILLAGE, 1978–1983.
“The film’s visually off-kilter conversations about sex, unfocused social commentary, and frenzied dance scene culminate in casual acts of recreational sadism.”*
