The ultimate pop-punk-Warhol experience
29 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yeah, this is it! The ultimate pop-punk-Warhol experience. A wild love triangle, that was shot many years prior to SEX, LIES AND VIDEO TAPE and is much cooler and deeper. Carole Bouquet in the role of NADA LUMIERE is so sexy and cool, Richard Hell as BILLY is riveting, ULLI LOMMEL as Hoffritz is very funny and Andy Warhol as himself is the best! There is so much cool punk rock music in the film, the entire Blank Generation album, it's a real treat, yeah. All the locations show Manhattan, especially SOHO and the Lower Eastside as they were rocking in the late 70s, and even the World Trade Center is in it in a very cool shot from the Staten Island Ferry. I had to order this DVD from Japan, where the movie is a big hit - those Japanese obviously know what's good and cool, I was unable to score a new DVD here in the States, why is that? The producers should do a US release on this one, it's obligatory, because there must be a zillion punk rock, 70s pop fans out there.
