This movie is also noteworthy for having the most gratuitous "putting a lobster on a butt" scene i've ever seen.

Ah this movie. I hated it when I first saw it but now I want to revisit it like Roger Corman's equally bad The Trip

The Trip is one of my favorite movies ever. Also the soundtrack is the only album by The Electric Flag that I particularly like.

infinite zest
I only rented it because Gram Parsons and the International Submarine Band was in it, and they overdubbed it so I think that's why I didn't like it. Maybe I'll watch it again.

For those who haven't seen the movie, the last part with Warhol walking around in the marsh near his house and taking photos is his BIG ACTION SEQUENCE where his photos blow open the whole case and he is the hero even though Jack Palance already figured it out and they obviously wrote Warhol in at the last minute in exchange for filming on his property, and literally nothing he does in the movie is actually necessary.

He was the worst.

Five stars!

The mother of one of my best friends was a Factory regular in the late 60s; the one time I heard her talk about Warhol she just said there was "absolutely nothing there" pretty much in those exact words.


Of course that was kind of the whole idea, satirizing the scam that is the art business by engaging in it as completely as possible.

I never much cared for his art until I saw some of the really large pieces like the Disaster series electric chairs that included a second blank canvas (so he could charge twice as much for the same amount of effort), but I've always liked his films and the Paul Morrissey films he bankrolled.

I guess it's kind of ironic that the medium is so important to the pieces that reproductions don't cu it. His films work a lot better on the original prints, too, and even if you don't like him you should definitely go to a screening if you ever have the chance. Mass Art shows them sometimes, and they have a good collection.

Now hold up! I've been out to sea so I haven't had much time or access to decent internet to hang out, but there has been a lot of Warhol bashing here. I am a fan of his art. He had a great eye for color and placement and has made many iconic images. The Marylins, Lizzes, and Elvises may have been based on photos, but his choice of colors and placement created icons of them more powerful than the origninal photos. His Flowers were based on a photo, but again his touch made them more beautiful.
