  • Ric Burns – Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film (2006)

    2001-2010DocumentaryRic BurnsUSA

    Plot Outline: No artist in the second half of the 20th century was more famous – or, perhaps, more famously misunderstood – than Andy Warhol. This two-part film, directed by Ric Burns, explores Warhol’s astonishing artistic output – from the late 1940s to his untimely death in 1987 – paintings, drawings and photographs, films and television, books, magazines and musical performances. Set within the turbulent, changing context of his life and times, this portrait is the first to move deeply into the immense archives at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the city of his humble origins. Obsessed with fame and a desire to transcend those origins, Warhol uniquely grasped the realities of modern society – the function of celebrity and of the mass media – and became the high priest of one of the most radical experiments in American culture, permanently penetrating and redefining the barrier between art and commerce.Read More »

  • Willard Maas – Andy Warhol’s Silver Flotations (1966)

    1961-1970ExperimentalShort FilmUSAWillard Maas

    From Experimental Cinema:
    In April of 1966, the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York opened an exhibit by the true Jay Gatsby of American art, Andy Warhol. Silver Clouds, as it was called, consisted in its entirety of a roomful of silver, metalized plastic pillow-shaped balloons inflated with helium and oxygen. They floated … that’s all they did … held aloft by the gallery’s own air vents. In comparison to Warhol’s yellow and pink Cow wallpaper exhibit then-ongoing in another part of the gallery, this was a dynamic work, but it was not without its charm for some.Read More »

    Plot Summary:
    Joe Spencer, a member of a motorcycle gang, is taking a shower. After his bout with personal hygiene, Joe encounters Andy Warhol’s “superstars,” who engage him in conversation. The superstars crack jokes he doesn’t understand and continually correct his poor pronunciation in an attempt to deflate his machismo. In response to these provocations, Joe becomes more obscene and more boasting, but ultimately, he cannot compete with the put-downs that are part of the put-on performances of the Warhol superstars, who prevail over him in the end.
