Trivia

The film has a distinct personal touch, and it is generally accepted that Anonymous in the credits stands for just one person. Some said it was Andy Warhol, who lost his nerve to sign the film when completed, or Kenneth Anger. However, it was later revealed to have been James Bidgood who refused to sign the film as edited by the producers, before he had time to film more material. See more »

A Homoerotic Spectacle
2 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

PN is one of those films that even Roger Ebert runs across now and again that really defies categorization. It is a fantasy, a spectacle, a tour de force, an indulgences, a homoerotic cornucopia, idealized male sex. It's possible to see different emphases every time its viewed.

Is it a precursor to Fellini's "Satricon"? To "Midnight Cowboy"? A youth, Bobby Kendall, in a romantic idyll who sees his grubby hustling trade on NYC's as a Roman bacchanal, a prancing matador. Does Bobby really see the world in which he lives or does he choose not to see it? The unanswered mysteries and questions this film raises, despite its last minute snatching from the hands of its creator, make it a Mona Lisa of filmdom. Even if you don't like it, you'll be intrigued by it and want to talk about it. That's why it's worth viewing.
