9780521389938: The Films of Paul Morrissey (Cambridge Film Classics)

The Films of Paul Morrissey is the first appraisal of one of the major figures of American independent cinema. An innovator in the narrative cinema that emerged from Andy Warhol's Factory, Morrissey, as established in this study, was also the force who shaped the most important films that have heretofore been attributed to Warhol. The director's experiments in the use of non-professional actors, controversial subject matter, and language are demonstrated through analysis of his most accomplished achievements, including Mixed Blood, 40 Deuce, and Spike of Bensonhurst. The Films of Paul Morrissey furthermore reveals the director's challenge to the moral, social and political values of contemporary liberalism.

Book Description:

The director's experiments in the use of nonprofessional actors, controversial subject matter, and language are demonstrated through this first analysis of his most notable achievements, including Mixed Blood, 40 Deuce, and Spike of Bensonhurst.

Review:

"This new book is very welcome as the first major study of Morrissey's career. It puts into perspective the major, all-embracing, contribution that Morrissey made to films that are generally regarded as the work of Andy Warhol....I wish it well and heartily recommend it." Anthony Slide, Classic Images
