MUBI US presents this new restoration of Bette Gordon's indie neo-noir VARIETY.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re spotlighting Bette Gordon’s trailblazing New York indie. Ingeniously inverting Taxi Driver, it’s a brilliant story of a woman trying to find meaning (and a livelihood) in a lonely life in a grimy city. One of the best evocations of New York put to film.

Christine, a bright and unassuming young woman, takes a job selling tickets at a porno theater near Times Square. Instead of distancing herself from the dark and erotic nature of this milieu, Christine soon develops an obsession that begins to consume her life.
