|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.
