Paul McCarthy shambles through his bizarre 1991 film Bossy Burger like an out-of-control bear at a picnic or perhaps a besotted bull in a china shop. Wearing a rubber Alfred E. Neuman mask and a white, stained chef’s outfit, the longtime L.A. artist-provocateur draws a penis and other crude images, tears up the set and otherwise acts like a boorish saboteur in a glorious fuck you to the mainstream art establishment. McCarthy dons a clown nose and wields an oversize paintbrush in the similarly rude-hilarious 1995 film Painter as the artist indulges in a brilliant extended tantrum. This free screening also includes Heidi, a 1991 collaboration with the late Mike Kelley.
