SUPERSTAR: THE KAREN CARPENTER STORY
Haynes | 1987 | US | 43m
*Intro by Kseniya Yarosh & Matt Carman of I Love Bad Movies
7:00 at MAD

“This largely unseen masterwork is officially suppressed by both the Carpenter estate and Mattel, for obvious reasons… The film works on multiple levels, quickly surpassing the kitsch potential in its premise and delving into a deeper critique of the societal pressures on women and the cultural impact of pop music. The film’s main focus is on Karen’s increasingly out-of-control anorexia, and Haynes frequently interrupts the narrative with scientific and psychological discussions of anorexia’s symptoms, causes, and the effect on the women who suffer from it. As the film progresses, it becomes clear that the use of dolls to portray all the characters is not simply a jokey formal tic, but an inspired metaphor for the ways in which Karen is manipulated and commodified by her family, record company, and society at large.”
Ed Howard, Only the Cinema
