Review: ‘Trash’

Andy Warhol surfaces from the camp underground with Trash, the most comprehensible, and least annoying of a long line of quasi-porno features from Chelsea Girls to Lonesome Cowboys.

Andy Warhol surfaces from the camp underground with Trash, the most comprehensible, and least annoying of a long line of quasi-porno features from Chelsea Girls to Lonesome Cowboys.

As with earlier Flesh, director here is Paul Morrissey who has the Warhol gift of attracting gregarious grotesque and eliciting no-holds improvisations within loosely structured dramatic situations.

Once again, stud-in-residence is Joe Dallesandro, this time as a strung-out heroin addict unable to function sexually despite numerous provocations. He displays both a forceful screen presence and ease in front of the camera that cannot be hastily dismissed.
