James Bidgood spent six years working on his 1971 erotic/surrealist film, Pink Narcissus. Due to the filmmaker being credited as “Anonymous,” many viewers suspected that Andy Warhol had been behind the underground masterpiece.
Pink Narcissus was shot entirely on 8 mm film in Bidgood’s apartment. The film follows the fantasies of a young gay prostitute. Bidgood would later influence photographers like Pierre et Gillles.
