The Ringer (1972)

..and while we have Jeff Lieberman on the brain, today's nod goes to his first film, the short THE RINGER, which is featured as an extra on the BLUE SUNSHINE DVD. This short movie is notable for its layered plot and a sly drug addiction theme, about the craze surrounding these nose rings. You can see the seeds of the writer-director's masterpiece BLUE SUNSHINE at work here- its incredibly ambitious narrative that belies its low-budget, and Lieberman's typically sly sense of humour. Lots of fun.
