1968 · New York
Morrissey's first production for Warhol, Dallesandro's second leading role, and an intentionally envelope-pushing film, Dallesandro plays a bisexual prostitute who tricks in order to fund his wife's lover's abortion. "Flesh" was considered so explicit that it was confiscated by the police in 1970 during one of its early screenings, and features an overabundance of scenes that depict our main character's genitalia.
The two would work together on five more Warhol films following "Flesh," including "Lonesome Cowboys," and "Heat."
