Quotes

Dusty Cole: How's your mother?
Cherry Lane: She threw me out. I guess she got tired of me using all her hairspray.
Dusty Cole: Where are you living now?
Cherry Lane: Some hole in the wall on the Lower East Side. It's not much to look at but it's rent controlled. I don't keep much food over there because ever time I do the cockroaches mug me for the food I bring home.
Dusty Cole: How much rent do you pay?
Cherry Lane: 40 a month. I've been so desperate for cash that I've been trying to make the landlord make me live rent free for the past two months. I figure that if I...

Stop the presses! A legitimately good Andy Milligan film
25 July 2008 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Andy Milligan receives a lot of harsh criticism as one of the least talented filmmakers ever. If I had only seen his admittedly lousy horror films, I'd definitely agree. However, after reading "The Ghastly One" (one of the best biographies ever) and seeing this, a sexploitation drama he made, I completely bite my tongue. The man made films on budgets H.G. Lewis would find unthinkable and his misanthropic world view comes through loud and clear. Any Milligan film, even at their worst, makes for a compulsive viewing, especially if you are a bit familiar with the man's background. However, "Fleshpot on 42nd Street" is a legitimately good film, in a really scuzzy kind of way. The acting is good, the characters sympathetic, and it has a really unique vibe.

One of the core reasons for the film's success is the central performance from Laura Cannon. Shes sympathetic and comes across as a naive innocent in a depraved world. For someone as notoriously misogynistic as Milligan, its rather odd to see such a likable female character. Harry Reems (who starred in the legendary "Deep Throat" the year before) is also good as the man who offers her an escape from the street life. Milligan's direction is bland, but he makes great use out of location filming. The man's background was in plays and it shows. "Fleshpot on 42nd Street" would've made a great alternative theater production. (8/10)
