Joe Dallesandro plays a heroin junkie who works as a male prostitute in the streets of New York to support his habit, as well as his wife's, who happens to be a lesbian.

Comments's a curio. Technically abominable (with audible "pops" between scenes)and awesomely amateurish, "Flesh" requires a lot of patience to sit through and will probably turn off most viewers, but the dialogue rings amazingly true and Joe Dallesandro, who exposes his body in almost every scene, also gives an utterly convincing performance. A curio, to be sure, but the more polished "Trash", made two years later, is a definite step forward. I suggest you watch that instead.(*1/2)
