Heat Details


[[Feature~V135459~Heat~heat]] is one of the more mainstream films produced by [[Performer~P115970~Andy Warhol~andywarhol]]'s "Factory" and directed by [[Performer~P103597~Paul Morrissey~paulmorrissey]]. It is something of a send-up of [[Feature~V47703~Sunset Boulevard,~sunsetboulevard]] with male beauty [[Performer~P16668~Joe Dallesandro~joedallesandro]] in the [[Performer~P32805~William Holden~williamholden]] part. In the film, Dallessandro seeks to advance his career by bedding anyone who is able to help him, from corpulent lady motel owners, to the gay boyfriend of a movie star's ex-husband. His career moves land him in bed with a fading but still-influential movie star ([[Performer~P49125~Sylvia Miles~sylviamiles]]), and they enjoy a brief relationship. This ends, however, when Dallessandro decides that he wants to handle his career on his own. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
