where the art?

I saw this in an art house theatre and when the feature was over comments could be heard like "such artistic talent" etc.

Well I love Warhol's paintings, him being my favourite artist, but found that this film was frankly boring. I could see no logic as to why this should be a film and not a painting where it would work much better. It does not hold your attention for more than 2 minutes.

To be honest.. boring tripe. Avoid at all costs. Go to a gallery and see his real art... superb. The only great Warhol film I've actually seen is Harlot, not listed in the imdb.
