Stupid and Wonderful
24 July 2000 | by (Bella Vista, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Just a guy sleeping. Cheap, boring, but sensitive and realistic. Warhol isn't a director. He is an artist. The artist of the century maybe. This shows us what he thinks of life. Boring, stupid. I don't agree with him, but the fact of wasting time in making this, thrills me. Completely original, 10, for doing what nobody else had done and not worrying about the money.
