Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story

The Saturday Night Brain Police Cinema Club
..Sit back and relax with a movie I thought had been technically banned. 
Todd Haynes 1987 version of The Karen Carpenter Story!
I saw this when it came out and thought it was brilliant. Haynes uses Barbie and Ken dolls to re enact the tragically bizarre anorexic death of Kern Carpenter. Then the movie disappeared in a fog of legal problems and libel lawsuits. You might want to make an extra bowl of popcorn. You don't want to end up like Karen......
