Editorial Reviews

In LIPSTICK, Chris McCormick (Margaux Hemingway), a high fashion and cosmetics model is brutally raped by her younger sister’s music teacher, Gordon Stuart (Sarandon). After pleading not guilty to the crime and being found innocent by a jury, Stuart finds a new victim in Chris’s younger sister and his own student, Kathy (Mariel Hemingway). Now even more enraged by the recent turn of events, Chris takes matters into her own hands as she seeks revenge for the crimes committed against both herself and her sister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lipstick February 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Really not as bad as everyone said it was back in 1976. Give Margaux a break! She was just 20 years old and this was her first movie. This Girl had to carry this film on her shoulders and I for one think she did a great job! I think she held her own with Anne, Perry & Chris too. The script does fail her,though. Give it a second try because its really not that bad! There are many other movies with firstimers out there that I'm sure were alot worse than this debut. Margaux deserves applauds just for taking the plunge from modeling to movies! ND

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Trash October 23, 2003
Oh how I love this film! Margaux is divine as a high fashion model who is raped by her teen sister's school music teacher! Well she is not just raped, she is completely brutalised! I swear some of those scenes looked a bit too realistic. Chris Sarandon is absolutely devilish in the role of the sadistic rapist. He doesn't just physically overpower Margaux, he also attacks her mentally. After the deed is done he slyly begs of her to "not do this with anyone else." During the trial he also torments her with late night calls playing selections of his Phillip Glass inspired music. While the subject matter is serious the film is also high camp & truely hilarious! In an emotional (or as emotional as Margaux can get) courtroom scene she shouts out "he tried to kill me with his c**k!" Let us also not forget lil sis Mariel who gets attacked at the end of the film...after a high speed chase through the Pasadena Design Center! This pushes Margaux over the edge so she grabs a shotgun and goes after Sarandon with a vengeance! After pumping him full of bullets she just keeps pulling the is AMAZING! Francesco Scavullo must be so proud.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GLOSSLY TREAT January 19, 2006
The late Margaux Hemingway saw her movie career take a nosedive after the release of this film, while her co-star and little sister Mariel became the toast of the town. But to many cinephiles, she'll always be remembered as the woman in red holding one mean rifle. Margaux plays Chris McCormick, a top fashion model (no stretch at all, here, since she really was a top model at the time) who ends up regretting her decision of having innocently invited her sibling's music teacher (Chris Sarandon of "Fright Night" fame) to her apartment. While she cries rape (with the help of Academy award winner Anne Bancroft as her attorney) the judicial system, however, sees it differently. LIPSTICK is the ultimate B-movie extravaganza. Raw to the bone, it is avant-garde cinema with a glossy exterior. David Rayfeil's script spares no details in degrading women via ultra-violent scenes (one a la "The Accused") and a misogynistic message regarding men and feminine beauty. But as a whole--and not too taken seriously--LIPSTICK is 90 minutes of pure fun. The film has a Russ Myer feel to it, a sort of cinema verite of the late 60's (the ones who lured mostly the male clientele). Margaux Hemingway gives all she's got and comes up almost rosy despite her limited range. She may not be Meryl Streep, but, contrary to popular opinion, her performance is believable. Of course, then-12 year old Mariel do steal the show with her quiet but strong delivery. Every nuance of her emotional face shows the making of a great actress, and she did become one for awhile, while her older sister stumbled and stumbled in forgettable Z flicks. LIPSTICK was indeed the apogee of Margaux's career. Far from being Academy award worthy, it is definitely a fave among lovers of cult movies, and with good reasons. Now all it needs is a deluxe DVD edition with all the extra goodies.-----Martin Boucher

4.0 out of 5 stars Chilling Movie! June 28, 2009
This movie was panned back when it came out but I think now you can watch and truly relate to the actions of a woman abused by both her attacker and the system and takes revenge at the end, the movie is not bad and the acting is pretty good...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow March 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
i got emotional after watching it on amazon instant video. ive never seen this before. the courtroom scenes were infuriating... i never get this way during movies or any type of rape scene, but this one had me in tears only cuz it shows the long term pain that rape survivors go thru.

I know the girl who plays the sister is related to chris, the main character. I wonder if they are sisters or mother/daughter they look alike, same smile/voice, and same last name. I saw the little girl in movies and tales from the crypt the hilarious love potion karma with ANDREW MCCARTHY... hehehe. I enjoyed myself. Good flick

3.0 out of 5 stars There's something about this movie ... November 17, 2003
By William
It's far from being the best film ever made, but LIPSTICK has some special quality about it. Let's first look at the exceptional performances from the cast:
Chris Sarandon - plays the school teacher of the younger sister (Mariel Hemingway) who rapes the older sister first and then the younger sister after being acquitted of the first crime. He really comes across as the creep he is intended to. You grow to hate him, which is the point.
Mariel Hemingway - her acting debut in which she shines. A great performance.
Ann Bancroft - plays the lawyer convincingly. An all round great actress.
Margaux Hemingway - the lead actress, and real-life sister of Mariel (unfortunately died tragically in mid 90's). Not a great actress by any means but she had her moments in the film. Pity about her voice. She was actually a model in real life then, rather than an actress.
The film bombed upon release in 1976 possibly because audiences couldn't accept Margaux trying to switch to acting. These days, such a movie would go straight to TV.
It is worth seeing at least once - The younger sister's performance is that good.
DVD SUMMARY - a bare bones release saved by an impressive transfer (and widescreen anamorphic too!). No trailer included.

This movie really touches not only on rape but how we treat women who are victims of it. It's 70's chic too ;)

Nicely done, not overboard by todays standards. The Hemingway girls are great actors and it is a shame one is gone now.

4.0 out of 5 stars A tough and uncompromising rape-revenge thriller...
Very well done and well acted from the Hemingway sisters, especially considering this was pretty much the first role for either.
