For all but the Andy Warhol scenes, this documentary gives you a good view...
9 September 2001 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 9/9/2001 - 6 out of 10(Dir-Emile de Antonio): For all but the Andy Warhol scenes, this documentary gives you a good view into how these "abstract" painters did their work. The artists' actually seem more concerned about how to accomplish the work, rather than what it means(which is what we think they care about). Warhol comes across like he's trying to trick the interviewer and not present the truth about his art form, but all the other artist's present true impressions of who they respect, how they accomplish their work, and why they do their work the way they do. I still don't know why they do what they do, but after viewing this film I respect them as people trying to do something different than the norm and in this express who they are in some way.
