Critic Reviews for Flesh

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

Flesh is strikingly redolent of its time: morally vacant, stylish, lightweight, daring, but also dreary. It represents everything people both love and hate about the 1960s.

It's at least interesting. It isn't very good, though; if it hadn't come from New York under Warhol's sponsorship, we'd never have seen it.

Flesh offers a funny look at the underbelly of the city.

The way Morrissey keeps things natural and real is both bracing and important

August 26, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

By comparison to the aimless young adults of Flesh, the troubled teens in any given Larry Clark film seem downright motivated.

Audience Reviews for Flesh


The first in the Warhol/Morrissey trilogy, Flesh is an avant-garde film typical of the Warhol effort featuring Warhol superstar Joe Dallesandro, the plot was about a hustler's mundane day, like the protagonist, I fell asleep.

Sometimes you get from a film exactly what the title tells you you'll get, in this case flesh. Dallesandro sits around naked doing not much of anything and just wallows in his horrible lifestyle. It's really boring and not worth watching, I don't know what the idea behind this movie was supposed to be, but I think they missed the mark.
