::: Paul Morrissey the Trilogy :::

Paul Morrissey is one of the most eclectic and extraordinary independent directors in Hollywood. His Trilogy will be presented at the Taormina BNL Film Fest with his films which are among the most interesting and innovative, Flesh, Trash, and Heat all featuring Joe Dallesandro. Paul Morrissey is one of the most innovative and provocative filmmakers of the last forty years. At the core of Morrissey's films, there is the mass existence and prosaic American world, forgetful of the insubstantial rhetoric of the American dream, and described without any explicit moralistic comment, either positive or negative. In fact, his provocative intent arises from a reality fully exposed and the consequent comparison is absolutely shattering. Drug addicts, fetish artists, lesbian wives, transvestites, prostitutes fill Morrissey's extravagant universe. His original style is crude but unrivalled, and it is part of that hyper-realist tendency which characterised the best USA cinema of the 1970s.
