BABY is a 1985 American adventure fantasy film; what your lover calls you; and your mother calls you. An inconoclastic, rhapsodic and ice-cold performance on the problem of human agency.

"A supreme WTF of a show"

"It's not very good. I had a very good time.

I'd see it again."

- Plays to See

"A post modern masterpiece”
