Andy Warhol’s “in house” film director, created some of the most compelling
underground films from the early 70s, and tonight we are proud to screen two of
them – both starring Warhol’s most famous acting discovery: Joe Dallesandro.
Strange, preserve and often shocking in very different ways, they represent the
American underground at its most pioneering. You will never forget it. (ticket price allows you admission to BOTH films!)(Contact our house manager, email@example.com if you have any questions. And remember if you purchase tickets and cannot attend it is you responsibility to give or sell them further and Husets Bio cannot provide refunds)
19.00 =“TRASH”, 1970, 110 min., Directed by Paul
Morrissey, presented by Andy Warhol / The
story of Joe [Dallesandro] and his lover-protector, Holly [Woodlawn], who is
something to behold, a comic book Mother Courage who fancies herself as gutter
version Marlene Dietrich. Joe and Holly try to make a go of things in their
Lower East Side basement, from which Holly goes forth from time to time to
cruise the Fillmore East and to scavenge garbage cans, while Joe search for his
next fix ... “Trash” is true-blue movie-making, funny and vivid.--Vincent
Canby, The New York Times.
= “ANDY WARHOL’S FRANKENSTEIN,” 1973, 95 min., / In 1973 Warhol and Paul Morrissey created ‘Frankenstein,´ a violent, sexually daring
version of the nineteenth-century classic novel. In 1968 Warhol had been shot
and critically injured and the extensive surgery he required left him badly
scarred. In 'Frankenstein', with its graphic shots of scarred, ripped and disfigured
bodies, Warhol can be seen as confronting the mutilation of his own body (see
famous disturbing photograph of him showing his scars), but it’s much more – a
wildly entertaining, joyously perverse and outrageous send-up of life, death
and desire. A major work of underground cinema screened on an excellent 35mm
print. An unforgettable experience you will talk about for weeks.
