Winner of the Peabody Award! No artist in the second half of the 20th century was more famous, or misunderstood, than Andy Warhol. This film explores his astonishing output from the late 1940s to his death in 1987. Obsessed with the desire to transcend his origins, Warhol grasped the realities of modern society and became the high priest of one of the most radical experiments in American culture, penetrating the barrier between art and commerce.

Nice try but ...

Comments about PBS American Masters: Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film DVD:

The best of this film consists of old photos and info about Warhol's childhood, family, and early works as a graphic artist. Warhol's brother's voice-over comments make a good, personal contribution. The rest of the film is a repetitious pastiche of talking heads, with little analysis of the art. Especially irritating are the robotic, dull, and trite readings by a female commentator.

A new addition to my Must See list.

Comments about PBS American Masters: Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film DVD:

After years of teaching students about Andy Warhol's influence on the world of modern art, this film showed a side that filled in the blanks and put his work into a much clearer perspective. Including his childhood art experiences along with his progression through fine art, commercial art, and signature hybrid style shows the extent of his need to create. This film brings a warmth to the persona of Andy Warhol I had never before considered. This is a film I will put on my classroom list of Must See Art Films!

A superb documentary, and wonderful portrait of an artist. This is by far the best film about Andy Warhol, his work and his place in our culture.
