Andy Warhol Presents: HEAT 1972
  • Artist Rooms
1972 saw the release of the final film in the ‘Flesh / Trash / Heat’ trilogy, which centred on the darker aspects of American culture. Based on the 1950 American film classic ‘Sunset Boulevard’, ‘Heat’ focused on the life of a former child-star who attempts to revive his career. With young filmmaker Paul Morrissey taking a leading role in the making of these films, he converts Warhol’s aesthetic and interest in challenging the viewer’s perceptions, into a more mainstream format. 'Heat' was generally well received and was included in the Venice Film Festival. This poster adopts the look of a reel of film showing the lead stars alongside some favourable reviews.
