Weaving together varied, and often enigmatic, interviews with the artist shot over three decades, Workman surveys Warhol’s art and films along with interviews and appearances with such observers as Viva, Dennis Hopper, Roy Lichtenstein, Gerald Malanga, David Hockney, Taylor Mead and many more in the Warhol “family.” Taking no overt stand towards Warhol other than to confirm his place as a true visionary, the complex interaction between Warhol’s personal, artistic and celebrity lives and his profound impact on the culture emerge to illuminate one of the most creative minds of the 20th century.
