Directed by Larry Cohen • 1972 • United States
Starring Yaphet Kotto, Andrew Duggan, Jeannie Berlin
Welcome to Beverly Hills, where upper-class white married couples like Bill and Bernadette (Andrew Duggan and Joyce Van Patten) enjoy their happy life of wealth and privilege. But when an unstable Black criminal (Yaphet Kotto) invades their home, each will be forced to explore their own nightmares of lies and desire, as every perverse secret is exposed and nothing, they find, is ever really black and white. This is the daring, disturbing, and still controversial directorial debut of underground auteur Larry Cohen, one of the most audacious talents in modern American cinema.
