Dated but still a good overview
21 January 2019 | by candicegradenSee all my reviews

This documentary goes over Andy Warhol's entire life and career in only 1 hour and 14 min. This intrinsically limits the amount of information the director was able to cover in his film. I do wish he had spent less time on Warhol's films - though he was a prolific director - and more on his acrylics and serigraphs, as well as the artist's personal life. In our world of HD, the film definitely looks dated, and doesn't do full justice to Warhol's art. However I do recommend it as a solid introduction to Warhol's contribution to the art world.
