Lonesome Cowboys (1967). In 16 mm, 111 min.
In conjunction with love fear pleasure lust pain glamour death—Andy Warhol Media Works and in honor of Gay Pride Month, SAM Films highlights a selection of early films made by Warhol.
In Lonesome Cowboys, Warhol explores the homoerotic subtext of the Western as a gay?/straight? drifter (Tom Hompertz) joins a gang of homosexual cowpokes in Arizona. His desirability disrupts the groupís solidarity, and hyperactive Superstar Viva amps up the tension when she starts coming on to Hompertz, thus making herself a vulnerable target. With Joe Dallesandro and Taylor Mead.
