Armand Rovira’s Letters to Paul Morrissey is a beautifully realised series of cinematic letters to underground /independent / cult film director Paul Morrissey (Trash, Heat, Flesh, Blood For Dracula).
These confessional celluloid letters cover various subjects ranging from relationships to drugs, from an actress ageing to aural sensitivities, and there’s a keen sensibility throughout that makes Letters To Paul Morrissey a pleasure to watch.
For Morrissey / Andy Warhol fans Joe Dallesandro voices one of the letters, adding to the film’s aesthetic. Shot on black and white 16mm, which adds a depth, texture, and style to the film that recalls the underground films of the sixties.
