New York City never looked so seedy as it does in 1972's Fleshpot on 42nd Street, directed by Andy Milligan, the pioneering filmmaker (in)famous for his stories of pimps, hookers, drug dealers and other assorted lowlifes living the high life. “The Art of Exploitation,” Cinefamily's Friday night tribute to all things sleazy and greasy on film, continues with Milligan's masterpiece, along with his 1970 vampire movie The Body Beneath. This double bill is also secretly a triple bill, with a “bonus mystery film” for smut fanatics who just can't get enough. (Hint: Playboy's Playmate of the Year 1970 Claudia Jennings stars.) New York blog Temple of Schlock (templeofschlock.blogspot.com) co-sponsors the series with Cultra Video, the DVD label on a mission to save from obscurity the greatest flicks of underground cinema. Still to come: Teenage Divorcee (a.k.a. Josie's Castle), Honky Tonk Nights (Feb. 19); Game Show Models and The Boob Tube (Feb. 26).
