5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Paul Morrissey collection..., 25 Oct 2009

(TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
If you're a fan of the period, of Paul Morrissey's films, of Andy Warhol's 'superstars' or you just enjoy seeing Joe Dallesandro in the buff, then this is the ultimate collection. This 'Édition Collector Numérotée' was originally released in France and is beautifully packaged and presented with many photographs and clippings of the time. There are 4 DVD's, one for each movie FLESH, TRASH and HEAT with each movie being accompanied by outtakes or alternative scenes, short montages of pictures and clips which set the movies into their socio-political context (or give you even more opportunity to gaze at Joe Dallesandro) and earlier short films made by Paul Morrissey (All Aboard the Dreamland Choo-Choo, Like Sleep, The Origin of Captain America and About Face).

The 4th DVD contains extended interviews with Paul Morrissey covering many aspects of the period including his time working with Warhol, Holly Woodlawn and Joe Dallesandro together with sections about the influence Warhol's Factory had on the music and fashion of the period. There's also an interview with Jonas Mekas who co-founded the Anthology Film Archives in New York in 1970. Finally there's the original version of Ronald Nameth's short film 'Exploding Plastic Inevitable', a record of the Velvet Underground's multi-media performance from 1966, together with a short interview with Nameth himself.

I had to buy my copy from Amazon.fr as it wasn't originally available via the UK site and hopefully this is still an option if there aren't any available thru Amazon.co.uk. It's all presented in English (with optional French subtitles throughout) and it's a truly amazing package for anyone interested in the movies, the period or its people - sell your shoes to get a copy!

4.0 out of 5 stars It seems so long ago..., 2 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These three films from the Andy Warhol studio...Flesh, Trash and Heat...are in their own way iconic, representing as they do a glimpse of the Sixties, early Seventies, seen from the lower reaches of society. What dominates them all is the beauty and extraordinary personal style of Joe Dallesandro. But there are many strong performances from women, such as Sylvia Miles and Holly Woodlawn. It should be pointed out though that these films are not for the prudish; if nudity, sex, swearing and drug abuse offend you then you won't enjoy these films. But if you want a vision of the USA at a certain point in its history, a peculiar, slanted, intensely personal vision, then these movies should be seen, although really these are films that you don't so much SEE but rather EXPERIENCE.
