Believe the title...for it does not lie.
The only surprise that this film throws is that it took 2 weeks to film...that long?!?
Morrissey's exploitation is both repugnant and criminal.
Re-evaluating these hyped individuals - Morrissey & Warhol - should lead to (posthumous) criminal conviction.
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 Marlene Dietrich but sounds more like Phil Silvers. 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's journeys are in search of real junk... Trash is true-blue movie-making, funny and vivid.--Vincent Canby, The New York Times. Written and directed by Paul Morrissey, "presented" by Andy Warhol.
