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.

Format: DVD
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 A good example of psychological/midnight (pre-sleep) genre 21 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The main atmosphere of the film reminds me of a theatre play. This piece is neither a typical high budget American movie nor a totally underground one.(but a hybrid one) As i indicated above, the director seems to focus on the characters' personalities (like a theatre play) to give some personal messages to the viewer/observer. Whenever i watch the movie, i feel that i'm a doctor in a mental hospital and observing people. All the characters in the movie have some weaknesses in their personalities as it is in real life. And, in my opinion, the impressive presentation of the weaknesses of the different personalities is the underlying factor of the Heat's above - average success. For example, the performance of Sylvia Miles was really haunting. Her acting made me play this DVD three times last week. This role matches her perfectly. i can say the same for other movie characters. it seems like all the people are acting themselves not the roles. Therefore, one can,easily, feel the voyeuristic delight of observing people's daily private life (which is so trendy on today's television programmes) while watching the Heat. As for the subject guy, Joe Dallesandro, in terms of acting, he brings no striking or notable performance to the movie. However, to me, again, i may say that he plays himself. He's destined to act this role. Of course, there's no need to say that he's so young, beautiful and sexy in the HEAT. Being a fan of him can be only reason to watch this movie. However i should warn you that if your intent is to observe Joe's body and sexuality, this movie may not give you enough of his flesh. So, you'd better try 'The Flesh' from the famous Paul Morrissey trilogy. As a bottom line, this is not a brilliant, first class, unforgettable or masterpiece movie example at all. However, if you are into theather play-like, low-budgeted, psychological/midnight(pre-sleep) genre movies featuring a beautiful, long-haired, sexy guy with a swimwear(not showing his flesh excessively), this one is definetly for you! PS: The DVD version of this movie contains an extra material about the intentionally chosen dialogues of a few movie characters taken from the movie sequences. So this helps us more to understand the characters' personalities and their driving forces.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lukewarm 16 April 2010
By Gary F. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
There is really only one reason to watch an Andy Warhol production of a Paul Morrissey film starring Joe Dallesandro--and that is the hope that, somewhere along the way, you are going to see Dallesandro naked. A military brat who ran wild, Dallesandro did a number of nude modeling jobs for "physique" magazines before he stumbled into Warhol in 1967. Warhol knew a good thing when he saw it, and for the next several years Dallesandro would appear in one Warhol produced film after another, most of them directed by Paul Morrissey. The trouble is that Warhol was a bad producer, Morrissey was a ho-hum director, and Dallesandro is one of the most wooden actors to grace the screen. But whether he's naked, in a three piece suit, or stomping around in a swim suit--well, he just looks so damn good you can't help but watch his every move.

Released in 1972, HEAT has the barest plot imagineable. Dallesandro is a former child television star who wanders into a cheap motel that includes a swimming pool, a grotesque landlady, a couple of brothers who do a nightclub act in which they have sex, and a nitwit woman who claims to be a lesbian and whose mother (Sylvia Miles) is a fading star. Pretty soon Dallesandro is getting naked with the landlady and ultimately he gets naked with the fading star--but when she becomes too possessive he walks out. Throw in the occasional reference to SUNSET BLVD and that's pretty much it.

The cinematography is dull and so is most of the cast. Miles is loud and shrewish, but she gives the film what little energy it has. Dallesandro, of course, adds his part to the film by looking drop-dead, rough-trade gorgeous. But unless you're hot to see Miles' sagging breasts or Dallesandro's butt and a quick crotch flash, you might want to give HEAT a miss.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mad Camp Spoof of 'Sunset Boulevard' 17 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
HEAT is a riot - aging game show hostess vies with lesbian daughter for the affections of sexually ambiguous has been TV cowboy. The lines are eminently quotable ("Do you want your son to grow up to be a lesbian??") and the acting has elements that make cinema verite look like fantasyland. I know people (not ME, of course!) who've seen this thing 50, 60 times - and still can't get enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underground Classic 28 Jun. 2006
By directions - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is the most coherent in the Flesh/Trash/Heat trilogy and certainly more watchable than Andy Warhol's films that he personally "directed" (anyone for 8 hours of the Empire State Building?). John Waters was certainly influenced by Andy Warhol (who returned the favor in Andy Warhol's Bad) but his films were a lot more fun to watch. Though, just as in Andy Warhol, early John Waters had the characters basically play themselves, Pink Flamingoes and Female Trouble are shockingly hilarious, whereas Heat has a creepy sense of exploitation. This update on Sunset Boulevard (a far better movie by far) has the characters repeating what seem like monologues. The storyline revolves around the characters using each other sexually and otherwise and even though the "acting" is certainly lacking, the characters seem like real people who lived in the countercultural version of skid row at the time with the explicit scenes verging on pornographic without being at all arousing. The reason I called Heat a "classic" is that underground films at the time could be tedious, random images, political diatrebes, or experiments with film (the same shot over and over). This was way before underground films morphed into independent films where with the right connections, you could actually make a profit as well as before the vcr, when seeing an underground movie was an experience in itself. That world has now disappeared and "Heat" is a fragment of that time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plastic slice of life 23 Aug. 2002
By BuyCurious - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is probably the most accessible of the Worhol flicks, and comes across as a seedy voyeuristic experience. Sylvia Miles is fantastic as a whacked-out, washed-up actress of yesteryear, and her sexually-confused daughter is just as off-kilter. It's filled with hilariously weird characters and scenes, most noteably the scene where Joe (Dallesandro) and his landlord (Pat Ast) end up caressing each other in bed, in order for him to get "that discount" on his rent. Another stand-out is the discussion between Sylvia and her daughter over the possibility that her grandson will become a lesbian if he is raised by two gay women! The dialogue seems very natural, and perhaps was largely improvised. The label "art-house film" is appropriate here. More refined than Worhol's/Morrissey's "Trash" and "Flesh", this stream-of-consciousness film should satisfy if you enjoy well-done low-budget independent films.
