Frankenstein: Afterlives - Flesh for Frankenstein

1/2/2019; 40 minutes

With its extreme sex, violence, and gore, Paul Morrissey's Flesh for Frankenstein has alternately excited, disgusted, and baffled audiences for decades. In this conversation, media Professor Bliss Cua Lim (UC Irvine) and film and media graduate student Rachael Ball (UC Santa Barbara) unpack and celebrate this exceptional movie. Lim and Ball describe the production, release, and response to Flesh for Frankenstein, noting its connections to Italy's Cinecitta studios, Andy Warhol's Factory, and the mainstream success of X-rated films in the mid-1970s. Recorded on 12/06/2018. (#34362)
