Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol
A feature length documentary about Andy Warhol told through a close look into his art, his films, and the controversial times and world of which he was a part.
The film is told through extensive use of previously shot material, including several revealing and enigmatic interviews given by Warhol over the years, as well as a wide array of images from Warhol’s art and films. The popular music of three decades as performed by Lou Reed, The Velvet Underground, Bobby Short, Donna Summer, Pink Floyd and others, as well as serious music by Tchaikovsky, Verdi, and modern composer John Adams is used as underscoring.
The film includes a look at the people around Warhol in interviews shot expressly for the film and previously. Appearing in Superstar are Viva, Dennis Hopper, Roy Lichtenstein, critic Henry Geldzahler, Gerard Malanga, David Hockney, writer Fran Lebowitz, Liza Minelli, Ultra Violet, Taylor Mead, Shelley Winters, and several others.
