I brake for Warhol documentary


Andy Warhol: a Documentary Film
by Ric Burns
9-11 pm tonight on WHYY (PBS in Philadelphia). In the American Masters series. Part 2 is Thursday at 9.

Also profiled in upcoming American Masters programs are Preston Sturges, Cole Porter, Willie Nelson and Frank Gehry. You can see a trailer for the Warhol movie at this link.

About the Burns’ Warhol documentary, Stephen Holden of the Ny Times says:

the movie is an entirely absorbing, occasionally revelatory portrait of a brilliant talent driven to greatness by an inner chorus of demons and angels.

I think Warhol would like the deadpan title of this movie.
