"Shown at the San Francisco International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival in 1986 as part of a program of lesbian shorts, Ten Cents offers three semicomic narrative panels. The central panel, an eight-minute, static long-take showing a high-angle view of two frisky, taciturn, and efficient young men having sex in a public toilet, provoked the never-forgotten riot at the Roxy Theatre, in which lesbian spectators shouted at the screen, stomped out of the auditorium, and, legend has it, even stormed the projection booth."
