Andy Warhol

Made in 1972 by Lana Jokel, who had unlimited access to the artist. Andy Warhol remains behind his mask as critics and followers describe him as voyeuristic, demonic, innovative, shrewd, and influential. Warhol's mass media tactics, his factory output of paintings, prints and films made him the most adventurous, most enterprising, and definitely the naughtiest member of the Pop movement.

Nothing special

Aside from the novelty of seeing an occasional clip of Warhol fielding questions asked by the interviewer, it adds little to your understanding of him. Mostly people giving their opinions of him, or playing it up for the camera, in the case of Brigid Berlin.

Not a full biography but full of interesting stories.

I rented this when doing some research for a Halloween costume. Great film with actually footage and interviews with those who knew Andy. Not a full biography, but interesting highlights during his most influential phase.

this 1989 video was the first major profile of Warhol after his death in February 1987
this videotape runs 79 minutes. it was part of the London Weekend Television "South Bank Show".

my local library had it sitting on their shelf.

this is a good basic documentary introduction to the life of Andy Warhol(originally Warhola).

for a complete, full-blown documentary,the PBS produced "Andy Warhol-A Documentary Film" which came out in 2006 is the thing to get.

but, as i say, this little videotape will serve as a good foundation.

some of the highlights for me with this video is a glimpse of his film "Kitchen", about 30 seconds long.

another, from "Chelsea Girls", the "Pope Ondine" segment, Ondine slapping a girl around like a brat. she warns him in a gently stern voice "don't touch me" and he WACKS her again! i wish she went balistic on him!

an interview with brigid berlin shows her mocking her mother's horror after just coming from seeing her 'bohemian' daughter in "Chelsea Girls".

there are plenty of newsreals of Andy being interviewed

and Andy is always true to form, that is, squirling his way around every question, ducking, dodging, mimicking the interviewer, very reluctant to give a serious answer.

but so entertaining!

there are good discussions about his art, how it evolved, the public's and critic's reactions to it..his own 'thoughts' about it.

a multimedia artist with the singular purpose of making his love visible.
A visionary, who turned his weaknesses into strengths. A prescient aware beloved child who collaborated early with his mother who invested deeply in his gift and built an enormous extended family and production method; the idea wasn't to live forever but rather to create something that will. A clear realization of modular form and its implications a pioneer of epic proportions, a multimedia artist with the singular purpose of making his love visible not only in two and three dimensions but also the fourth dimension of time..."Time is. Time was." Andy Warhol
