Joe and Holly try to make a go of things in their Lower East Side basement, from which Holly goes forth from time to time to cruise the Fillmore East and to scavenge garbage cans, while Joe's journeys are in search of real junk... Trash is true-blue movie-making, funny and vivid.--Vincent Canby, The New York Times. Written and directed by Paul Morrissey, "presented" by Andy Warhol. Written by
This is the first Andy Warhol film that the transvestite Holly Woodlawn appeared in. Holly was only supposed to be in one scene, but the rushes were so good, Morrissey asked her back to do more. She was paid the usual acting fee for a Warhol film: $25.00 a day. When they finished shooting her footage, Holly celebrated by using her final payment of $25.00 on heroin. See more »

I've read about the movie's low budget process and expected a low quality flim, but I was surprised by how good this movie is. It is so raw and the actors are so natural that it feels almost like a documentary (perhaps the actors are not so different from their characters, but none the less they are fascinating people).
The characters are strange and high most of the time, which makes the movie absolutely hilarious. This is a brilliant, unique film, thanks to Paul Morrissey and Andy Warhol's eccentric vision and their Superstars.
