'superstars'. Raw and experimental film.
by: Andy Warhol
Most of Warhol's 'Superstars' of the
COLOR, APPROX 197 MINUTES
THIS IS A EXCELLENT CONVERSION OF THIS RARE MOVIE.
IT HAS NEVER BEEN OFFERED OUTSIDE OF NORTHERN EUROPE. I CAN SHIP
THIS AS A REGION FREE DVD IF YOUR MACHINE CAN READ
PAL FORMATS. IF NOT, I CAN SEND THIS AS A DVD+R OR DVD-R
(YOUR CHOICE) THAT WILL PLAY IN MOST MACHINES WORLDWIDE. PLEASE
CHECK YOUR MACHINE AND LET ME KNOW WHICH FORMATS YOU PREFER.
YOU ARE EITHER A FAN OF ANDY WARHOL FILMS OR HATE
THEM. THIS IS THE TYPICAL LATE 60'S - MID 70'S WORK FROM WARHOL.
YOU WILL FIND THIS EITHER FASINATING OR BORING. THE CAMERA WORK
TAKES SOME GETTING USED TO, SPLIT SCREEN WITH TWO DIFFERENT ACTORS,
BUT ONLY ONE SOUNDTRACK AT A TIME. THE MOST SHOCKING IS THE CASUAL
DRUG USE AND THE RAMBLINGS AFTER SHOOTING UP.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE LONG VERSION OF THIS FILM
THAT HAS BEEN RESTORED. DURING THE EDITING PROCESS OF THE
ORIGINAL, SOME AREAS OF THE FILM HAVE A LITTLE LOWER PICTURE
QUALITY AND THERE IS ABOUT A 15 MINUTE PERIOD OF MISSING
SOUNDTRACK. THIS IS THE MOST COMPLETE VERSION KNOW TO
The Chelsea Girls is a film so unique , so
frighteningly funny and real that it is in a category by itself.
The actors who perform can barely act yet slowly expose their souls
in front of Warhol's neutral camera. Any person interested in
American art and film has to see this film which is a milestone of
twentieth century art. It is more an experience than an
entertainment and an experience you will never forget. Warhol, as
an artist and filmmaker, set a tone and style that has been adapted
by other filmmakers such as the innovative use of split screen
(Carrie, Dressed to Kill, as examples). The frightening truth
surfaces in each reel of 16mm film in "Chelsea Girls." In an age of
Aquarius and the peace movement, "Chelsea Girls" proved to be a
wild descent into the hell of damaged souls. One of the most
important pieces of Pop Art to be seen.
