Heat feels like a cobbled-together conclusion to this so-called trilogy, a movie that offers little of what made the other offerings...so terrific in the first place.

DVD Verdict

Morrissey turns to fame and travels from New York to Los Angeles for this outrageously funny but almost painfully sharp comedy.

Audience Reviews for Heat

The triad: outrageous, hilarious, and sad. Pat Ast, Sylvia Miles, and Andrea Feldman are extraordinary.

Super Reviewer

Tried to enjoy this as I once owned a free copy of this but it didn't have any sort of production value, which isn't always needed but can make a piece of crap better, and didn't seem to fit into the other Warhol films. Very dull with lively performances from the cast but not enough to make up for an already stale plot

Rodney Eckrich

67/100. Campy classic, extremely low budget and the third in Paul Morrissey?s collaboration with Andy Warhol. The acting is quite poor, the sound quality is bad. However, it was quite frank and controversial back in 1972 with it?s blunt sexuality and racy situations. It?s fascinating in respect to it?s historical cult significance. Supposedly based on Sunset Boulevard, but in my opinion, there is only a minimal resemblance. It has some of the worst editing I have ever seen, bad enough to severely disrupt the films flow and to the point of being distracting. The sound quality is the same way, it has a bit of an echo to it and sometimes it's difficult to distinguish what the actors are saying.
