Description: Five lonesome cowboys get all hot & bothered at home en the range after confronting Ramona Alvarez and her nurse.
In the wild wild west, Ramona Alvarez and her perpetually stoned nurse run into five gay cowboys. The seven members of the party desire a handsome male drifter, except for the transvestite sheriff, who can’t be bothered about anything but his outfit. All hot & bothered at this point, the cowboys rape Ramona, who subsequently has sex with the drifter and, in the afterglow of sex, wants to form a suicide pact with him. The drifter rejects her new desire and rides off into the sunset with another man.
Andy Warhol proves he was a head of his time and a genius! For those who are unaware of the genius that is Warhol, you may not like this film because you come from a place of ignorance.
** It’s a great film. Cinema Verite at its best.
** All the sound track pops and whistles are intentional.
** hey are part of the art. And also Trashy…
** As is the loose acting and rough cuts.
** This movie is mesmerising on so many levels.
** It foreshadows every reality show of today. Just splendid.
Andy Warhol convinced a bunch of rich brats to be in a grotty flick and mix it up with a seedy bunch of drug addicts and homosexuals — pre aids days!
