The Films of Paul Morrissey is the first appraisal of one of the major figures of American independent cinema. An innovator in the narrative cinema that emerged from Andy Warhol's Factory, Morrissey, as established in this study, also shaped the most important films that have heretofore been attributed to Warhol. The director's experiments in the use of nonprofessional actors, and controversial subject matter and language are demonstrated through analysis of his most accomplished work, including Mixed Blood, Forty-Deuce, and Spike of Bensonhurst. The Films of Paul Morrissey furthermore reveals the director's challenge to the moral, social, and political values of contemporary liberalism.
