Director:Paul Morrissey
Writer:Paul Morrissey

Description: This Andy Warhol production finds Joe Dallesandro as Joe, a lice-ridden impotent junkie who lives with Holly (Holly Woodlawn) in a Lower East Side slum in New York. Holly is a transvestite who spends time collecting trash, going to the Fillmore East, and cruising for sex. Joe is only interested in his next fix, and graphic displays of needles piercing flesh and degrading human situations deglamorize drug use better than any board of education film or public service messages. Jane (Jane Forth) is the acid casualty housewife who listens to Pink Floyd. Male and female nudity and masturbation are featured. The color process is not credited, but technical aspects are better overall than most previous Warhol productions. Woodlawn was the inspiration for the Lou Reed song Take a Walk on the Wild Side. ~ Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide
