In The Sodomites of Shalimar, George Kuchar crafts a dizzying psychotronic drama of stilted romance and frustrated ambition replete with carnies, car crashes and calamitous volcano eruptions. Sodomites tells the tale of Amy, a young woman living in the Missouri Ozarks whose calm collected demeanor betrays the passion that rages within her, and her odyssey in search of fame, fortune and excitement following the death of her boyfriend Chester. Early in the film, Amy’s mother cautions that ‘you only live once, please use this flesh wisely.’ As the story unfolds, Amy discovers the terrible price one must pay for not heeding this warning.
