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.

User Reviews

Morrissey's influence apparent here.
20 October 2000 | by (Edmonton, Ab.) – See all my reviews

Bike Boy has Morrissey's influence everywhere, from the characteristic in-the-camera edits (as we would see in later films like Flesh) to character driven storyline. Bike boy is easier to watch than Warhol's earlier stuff, where the camera was static, and dialogue was minimal. Here Morrissey adds some structure to the narrative, Using more settings and adding more characters into the story. More of the same would follow from the factory as Morrissey would assert his influence more and more, not coincidently subsequent films would garner more box office bucks (go figure, who wants to watch an empire state building for 8 hours). Also this is the film that a young Richard Gere saw that made him want to become an actor.
