Storyline

Joe Spencer, a member of a motorcycle gang, is taking a shower. After his bout with personal hygiene, Joe encounters Andy Warhol's "superstars," who engage him in conversation. The superstars crack jokes he doesn't understand and continually correct his poor pronunciation in an attempt to deflate his machismo. In response to these provocations, Joe becomes more obscene and more boasting, but ultimately, he cannot compete with the put-downs that are part of the put-on performances of the Warhol superstars, who prevail over him in the end.

sex and the city
11 May 1999 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

While bike boy is actually one of the easier films to watch made by Warhol, it is still haunting in its harsh realism and cutting edge dialogs.

The movie is constructed of five encounters of bike boy with New York bohemian types, mostly women, and their conversations, mostly about sex.

The contradiction between the macho biker and the artsy Warhol gang shows human relationships and human behavior in a ridiculous light, especially concerning the issues of love, sex and loneliness in the metropolitan. It is an extremely funny film, although some moments can get a little bit too real, making it hard to watch... Of all of Warhol's films, this one is perhaps most reminiscent of the kind of cinema we are usually acquainted with. It's unique editing and use of sound position this film as a clear influence on film makers such as Hal Hartly, Todd Solondez etc. Highly recommended!
