Heavy Petting

If you aren’heavyPettingt aware of Snag Films, give this interesting internet channel a peek. It is also available on the television if you have an internet connection such as a Roku.

The film I just watched is titled Heavy Petting and gives a good overview of teenage sexuality in the 1950s (or at least something like what was represented in the movies and what several celebrity-types remember).

But the real magic that comes in this movie is the fascinating dual-interview with William S. Burroughs and Alan Ginsberg. They are very much missed. But to add even more value to this uneven documentary film they have included the slightly wilder responses of the late, great Abbie Hoffman.

Just for those images it’s worth watching this film more than once.
