Editorial Reviews

EVERY ARTIST NEEDS A CANVAS. FOR STEVE HAWORTH, IT'S HUMAN FLESH.

Flesh & Blood is Larry Silverman's compelling, critically acclaimed documentary about one of the most controversial and legendary practitioners in the world of radical body modification. Haworth takes piercing to whole new extreme. Haworth spawned a global subculture fixated on his surgical artistry. Some of the world's most extreme looking people have spent time under Haworth's knife. Flesh and Blood is an unflinching glimpse into an intense and mysterious world Haworth helped to create, and the obsessed people who inhabit it.

The fantastic story is told exceptionally well and the images exquisite.

It gave the lifestyle a different viewpoint, which was really nice because people tend to neglect those who change their minds.

Witness the subculture who pierce their bodies with hooks large enough to pull them off the ground by their very skin!

Flesh and Blood is an interesting look at the recent rise in body modification. At one time, it was daring to have a tattoo or for a man to wear an earring. Those days are over and people are pushing the boundaries ever farther in their attempts to change themselves.

The documentary examines several people in Arizona. One, Steve Haworth, helps people modify themselves. Among other procedures, viewers see Haworth implant metal studs in a man's scalp. The film also examines many of those who undergo modification. The film shows people who undertake suspensions in which they hang from meat hooks that are inserted under their skin.

While I enjoyed Flesh and Blood, I wished that the film had offered viewers more insight into why people undergo modifications. However, viewers have to find the answers for themselves.

Flesh and Blood is a different way to spend an hour.

First off, I am someone who lives in Arizona, goes to some of the fetish events Steve helps organize, and know individuals who have participated in Life Suspended and belong to other circles directly related to some of the people in this film. I have seen plenty of his work in person, and although I am not personally into heavy body modification myself, I respect his talent and professionalism as an artist.

That being said, I think that Larry Silverman could have done better putting together 5 years worth of footage into a more coherent and straightforward documentary that clocks in at roughly an hour. Even for those familiar with the scene and/or Steve's work, the first two-thirds of the movie are informative and provide a succinct but interesting perspective on the artist, his background, and the clients he works on. It seems candid and unforced like a casual glimpse into a condensed version of his life which is what I believe a documentary should be. Some of the scenes will startle those who have never seen them, and admittedly, seeing a transcrotal piercing being performed made me cringe a little. Overall, these first 40 minutes kept me interested and made me wish I could have heard more of Steve's dad talking about his son when he was younger or heard more insight from the heavy body mod clients on why they decide to take things to the next level.

The last third of the movie is what made me deduct a star because the movie started steering into a reality television drama vibe just for the sake of drama.

I love this dvd, i have looked for it for over 3 years and this is the only place that i found it and it wasnt really exspensive. This is great for anyone who love to see piercings and body mods taking place and it def not for the squimis or people who pass out over blood:)

I really enjoyed this documentary. Though, I feel like it could have been longer and included more information, what it DID cover was amazing. At the end they bring people in who had modifications done by Steve that they wanted to get removed, and people whose lives changed enough by their experience with the modified world, that they changed their ways. I thought it was a very fitting end, rather than just being a documentary praising everything that modification is. It gave the lifestyle a different viewpoint, which was really nice because people tend to neglect those who change their minds.
For anyone interested in finding out more about Steve Haworth, this is an amazing find. I am going to be modified by him this next year and it was good research in finding out if he was the perfect modifier for me and what I want.

Great video. Shows how the body mods have evolved and what Steve has done also. Shows how Steve made his products and how he evolved to who he is now. I had the honor on meeting him and having body moods done by him on me too! He is a great guy to get work by too... very interesting stuff
