I Shot Andy Warhol
Director Mary Harron's immensely entertaining and provocative first film digs deep into the Warhol zeitgeist. 

Harron tells the tale of Valerie Solanas' (Lili Taylor) fifteen minutes of fame when, on 3 June 1968, she strode into the Andy Warhol Factory in Manhattan, and blasted the owner away. 

Harron re-creates the 1960s demimonde with remarkable accuracy. Lili Taylor's butch, bile-spewing Solanas (the author of a manifesto called SCUM: Society for Cutting Up Men) commandeered a Special Recognition Prize for outstanding performance at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival.
