Format: DVD
An entertaining, if neccessarily condensed, review of Warhol's life and work featuring a host of people who knew and worked with him (family members, former Factory 'stars', artists, gallery owners, 'real' celebrities etc.) and plenty of great archive material. If you want to know more about the chap who has inspired the rash of dreadful two-colour screenprints clogging up ebay, this is probably a good place to start. If he remains as enigmatic at the end as he was when you sat down to watch this, that's surely what he intended.

Format: VHS Tape
Follows Warhol's career chronologically, with an opportunity to meet family members, art dealers, Factory regulars (including Gerard, Holly, and Candy) and celebrities.

Warhol as superstar was the product of a lot of smarts and effort. He went basically from
a) commercial success (e.g. drawing shoes for advertizers)
b) popular success as a Pop painter, which might not have amounted to much if limited to that.
c) widened popular success via silkscreening
d) broadened his recognition via the underground movies
e) provided recognition of each of his superstars, who fame brought further recognition to Warhol
f) tied himself further to celebrities via "Interview" magazine and his custom silkscreens of them
g) after being shot (his own celebrity having already been established by then) mainly partied with other celebrities (but also produced his diary as a way of calling attention to his time spent with celebrities)

and, following his success, we now live in a time when fame is meaningless yet compelling, when neither the famous nor the public seem to gain anything by it and yet cling to it all the more addictively. Once famous enough, how one became famous is inconsequential: this condition thanks to Andy.

After you have read, listened to and seen everything else about Warhol, this documentary will make the pieces fall into place ... but that they are pieces will be all the more apparent.

This is a really good documentary about Warhol and a nice film to remind one about the vision of this artist and the achievements he fulfilled
