Andy Warhol's Flesh is an American 1968 cult drama movie directed by Paul Morrissey on DVD. Geri (Geraldine Smith) ejects her husband Joe (Joe Dalessandro) from bed, and insists he go out on the streets to make some money for her girlfriend's abortion. This leads to Joe's various encounters with clients on the streets of New York City: an Artist (Maurice Bradell) who wishes to draw Joe, a Gymnast (Louis Waldon), and another 'John' (John Christian). Joe spends time with other hustlers, one of whom is played by his real life brother, and teaches the tricks of the trade to the New Hustler (Barry Brown). Raw, Charismatic, and unabashed, the performances anchor these unflinching and often hilarious looks at life on the streets where hustling, conning, shooting up, loving, and bickering make up every memorable day. Lou Reed's hit 1972 song "Walk on the Wild Side" is basically all about the cast of Flesh.
