Andy Warhol, My Hustler, USA, 1965, 67 min

Based on an interpretation of Anthony Burgess’ novel “A Clockwork Orange”, Vinyl has a claustrophobic, sado-masochistic script by Ronald Tavel. Gerard Malanga undergoes reconditioning for his transgressions as a juvenile delinquent. My Hustler is a first attempt at a more commercial film, with some concession towards conventional techniques. A sexual triangle competes for the attention of Paul America, a young stud ordered from the Dial-A-Hustler service.
