Home' LOTL : November 2004 Contents MERRYN JOHNS REVELS IN GINA GERSHON'S LATEST
Gina Gershon is devouring an exceedingly
attractive woman. She kisses the
woman's face, neck and breasts with those
lips, and ravishes her body with expert hands.
Needless to say, the woman is thoroughly
enjoying all this passionate attention and
reaches for the biggest vibrator in the history
of lesbian sex.
Of this sizzling scene from Gershon's new
movie Prey For Rock And Roll, screenwriter Cheri
Lovedog instructed Gershon: "Just remember --
you're not making love to her. You're fucking
her. It's different." "Yeah, yeah. I get it, I get it,"
This is why lesbians everywhere adore
Gershon, and why she is good at playing gay. And
when she does, she's often much better than the
risible material. Even the so-bad-it's-hilarious
Showgirls was worth enduring to see the sassy
Gershon lusting after leggy, vacuous Elizabeth
Berkley. The 1996 film Bound was actually good,
and Gershon, playing lesbian ex-con Corky had
many of us melting in our chairs.
Well, the eight year wait for another helping of a girl-loving Gershon is over.
Prey For Rock And Roll is a grungy, girl-band odyssey in which Gershon plays
tough-as-nails Jackie, lead singer of an outfit called Clam Dandy (I know!).
Pushing forty, she's having second thoughts about her clapped-out music career.
Based on a true story written by Cheri Lovedog, who spent much of the
1980s in a Hollywood all-girl punk band that never quite made it, Prey For Rock
And Roll is a meditation on a woman who does what she loves in spite of the
price. Like Gershon's Jackie, Lovedog was a tattoo artist who set a time limit on
her music ambitions due to the hardcore nature of the punk lifestyle. Lovedog's
milieu was plagued by bad luck and self-destruction and at 35 she quit the scene
to move up the California coast and concentrate on body art.
Similarly, in the film, Gershon's tattoo parlour is thriving, but her love life is
rocky and her band looks set to implode. Especially when heroin-addicted bass
