What The F***!
9 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Okay, I'll admit it...I've never seen this (so called)masterpiece in it's entirety (for those who are not familiar with it,it's an eight hour,plus portrait of the Empire State Building). I did see a fragment of it in the documentary about Warhol, called Andy Warhol:Superstar some years back (plus if I'm not mistaken, there's a brief clip of it in that superb,two part documentary that was aired on PBS sometimes last year). I figured, I guess I've seen all that I probably want (or,for that matter,need) to see. I heard rumors that Warhol used to dare people that came over to the Factory to watch it from start to finish. Although I consider myself to be a bit more patient with experimental/avant garde cinema, even this one would be a real challenge (and I sat through all eight hours of Mathew Barney's Cremaster Cycle in one screening a few years back, and loved it). I guess a certain level of pretension is to be expected with this kind of modern/post modern art. I guess the only way of seeing this soiled classic now is to visit the Warhol museum & find out if there is a screening planned of his early silent films.
