Watch: Andy Warhol – A Documentary Film

In Videos on December 12, 2010 at 3:54 am

You know, Andy Warhol only got shot because the person who shot him couldn’t locate the person she originally intended to shoot. C’est la vie – for Andy, at least.

This interesting documentary, part of PBS’s American Masters series, is a beefy four hours of photography, interviews, and videoclips that accompany an overview of the events surrounding the most prolific and immensely popular artist of the 20th century. Thanks to this documentary, I’ve decided that Andy, whose oeuvre only contains the marvelously mundane or hugely popular (but always easily recognizable), was obsessed with the transience of life, and for him, fame and all that comes with it acts as symbols for such… Just watch the doc and make some profound conclusions for yourself.
