Storyline

A look at the life, work, and impact of Andy Warhol (1928-1987), pop icon and artist, from his childhood in Pittsburgh to his death after a botched surgery. Warhol coined the word "superstar," became one, and changed the way the culture looks at and understands celebrity. After studying at Carnegie Tech, he goes to New York to be a commercial artist. By 1960, Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Rosenquist are inventing pop art. Warhol starts "The Factory," his workshop where he paints and makes movies. His is a cafe society of late nights and parties. His family, friends, an agent, a curator, gallery owners, actors, the co-founder of "Interview," and others tell stories and assess his art. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Unique look at a Unique man.
24 June 2002 | by (The Greater Southwest) – See all my reviews

Andy Warhol is one of the most talked about artists of the last 100 years, which was interesting, since many did not think he was an artist at all. However, what this film tries to do is show the uniqueness of the man, not the artist. In this movie we see the man that invented "pop art" and helped to promote and inspire several young artists of the day, such as Basquiat. Perhaps Warhol did not have the artistic skills of a Norman Rockwell, but he did have the flair and eye for detail which few have ever possesed. This movie takes a somewhat friendly and well deserved look at the man and the artist. SAMO(c)
