Several other side plots are woven in, populated with characters from the sleazy side of life. Written by

"ANDY WARHOL'S BAD" a "Cheezyflick"? You must be kidding!
I've just watched the DVD of "Andy Warhol's Bad" manufactured by Cheezyflix. Their Statement of Purpose, before the film begins, informs us that they specialize in films with only the poorest of production values, direction, acting, scripts, etc.
I have always considered "Andy Warhol's Bad" to be a film of considerable merit; an indictment of our sick society that was ahead of it's time, with strange performances befitting the characters, a literate script with the darkest humor I had ever encountered, fine direction, cinematography, and production design. In the Spring of 1977 I first saw this film at the Filmex Film Festival in Los Angeles. This festival was hardly the type to show the caliber of trash Cheezyflix specializes in. (Filmex premiered Woody Allen's "Annie Hall" the same year.) I also recall that Vincent Canby, in his New York Times review, was very respectful of "Andy Warhol's Bad".
I am appalled that Cheezyflix has this film in their inventory. How unjust that the typical Cheezyflix audience, that takes pleasure in ridiculing inept, inane films, is now being encouraged to regard "Andy Warhol's Bad" as something to demean.
