Episode 472: Pink Narcissus (1971)

Guest Co-Hosts: Maitland McDonagh, David Kittredge

James Bidgood's Pink Narcissus (1971) is a wordless film which tells the story of a young hustler (Bobby Kendall) who engages in a series of fantasies throughout an evening. The film was shot on 8mm but still presents a lush, fantastic color palette and incredible sets that are even more incredible when the viewer remembers that this was all shot in Bidgood's Hell's Kitchen apartment.

Maitland McDonagh and David Kittredge join Mike to discuss lyrical pornography, New York real estate, and the importance of finishing projects.
