Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

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 Raoul marks the end of the sexual revolution with a thwack.

Eating-In

A stunning restoration by the Criterion Collection Packed with a vast amount of special features including Paul Bartel’s short films and a menu inspired leaflet. Eating Raoul has a fantastically original premise that contains orchestrated murder with a frying pan. It’s rare for me to want a film to last longer; however length isn’t the only thing I wanted more from it. I hope this film grows on me as it contains the ingredients for a classic. Eating Raoul is definitely worth checking out: it might not leave you in hysterics, but it definitely won’t leave you deadpanned.
