I SHOT ANDY WARHOL (1996 U.S. U.K.) D/W: MARY HARRON W: DANIEL MINAHAN/JEREMIAH NEWTON P: TOM KALIN/CHRISTINE VACHON
Lili Taylor is very good as Valerie Solanas, the S.C.U.M. manifesto feminist and Warhol Factory hanger-on who made an attempt on Warhol`s wife. Jared Harris is Andy Warhol, Donovan Leitch is Gerard Malagna, Michael Imperioli is Ondine, Stephen Dorff is Candy Darling, Reg Rogers is Paul Morrissey and Yo La Tengo are a Velvets-like band. This film is very good and mostly authentic, but your appreciation will depend on how interesting a character you find Solanas. With Martha Plimpton, Anna Levine, Bill Sage, Jill Hennessy, John Ventiniglia, Justin Theroux and Eric Mobius. Harron returned with the far more accomplished AMERICAN PSYCHO.
