Description by Image Entertainment:

This is the first major profile of Andy Warhol's life and work since his death in 1987 and includes some previously unseen footage of the artist, shot in London shortly before his death. Warhol's was the classic American rags to riches story: he was born in the industrial slums of Pittsburgh the child of poor Czech immigrants. He grew up dreaming of Hollywood stars and eventually became a star himself, famous for his pop art, his bizarre underground films and for being the celebrity who for twenty years attended every party in town. This program shows Warhol performing for the media in interviews ranging over 25 years and examines his artistic achievements in a career which spanned painting, film, publishing, rock music and television. It also includes clips from films such as "Chelsea Girls," "Lonesome Cowboys" and "Women in Revolt," archival material, newsreel footage and contributions from many of Warhol's closest associates and superstars, including Ondine, Viva, John Giorno and Brigid Berlin.

Rating 5.0 Andy Warhol by Kim Evans Movie Lover: from Detroit, Michigan -- April, 9, 2009

Bravo!! This is an incredible insight into the birth of pop art and the man who set the world on fire with it. Once hard to find (now impossible) interviews of friends and colleagues are shown just after the passing of this creative genius and put you freshly into the scene that they shared together. If you love pop art, Andy Warhol and the creative blaze that swept through the 60's and 70's, this is a must have!!!
