Robert Shaw, director
Men’s Room; 1977
Directed by Robert Shaw, Men’s Room (1977), as the name implies, takes place in a public restroom in a park. The film’s explicit sex plays with themes of authority and exhibitionism as man after man uses this public space to engage in their erotic desires. Even a police officer that interrupts the fun becomes an object of lust with which the bathroom patrons have their way. The poster is true to the film itself. It displays a dirty public restroom as the home to various uninhibited sex acts. Perhaps emphasizing the inappropriate nature of this public space as a chamber of carnality, the poster adds the contrasting image of a bouquet of flowers planted in a urinal.
