Default Lipstick (1976)

I remember seeing the film 'Lipstick', staring sisters Margaux and Mariel Hemingway, on the television in the late 70's/early 80's

I remember it as a violent rape/revenge thriller

As far as I'm aware, it has never been released on video or DVD

It's a movie I would love to see again

There's a R1 disc which I own & a dutch dvd release.The UK video from Paramount lost about 3 minutes of the rape footage.The version shown on ITV was heavily cut replacing the worst parts of the rape with 'still shots'

This was released uncut on UK video in the pre cert years, but the R1 DVD is the best way to go until we get a Blu Ray.

I remember the TV screening - my first experience of the film - and the difference seeing the full uncut version made.

Kind of like seeing the uncut Death Wish 2 for the first time. Tough stuff!

Yes I still regard DW2 depiction of gang rape as one of the nastiest & most graphic depicted on film.It's unlikely to pass uncut in the UK for many years yet.I'd seen a brief clips on a Channel 4 documentary when James Ferman showed a few scenes (SEX & THE CENSOR) but was still shocked when I saw the uncut Australian disc.

They need the lipstick soundtrack. Chris sarandons 'music' is hilarious.

Decent rape revenge movie overall, becomes more a courtroom drama midway through then picks up near the end.

There's also a Thai R0 release of the film you can usually find on Ebay.
