is screening Ric Burns' Andy Warhol Documentary tomorrow night.
It clocks in at 4 hours with Laurie Anderson as the narrator and then there
is the wry casting of Jeff Koons as the voice of Andy Warhol... kinda like casting
one of the members of Oasis in a Beatles documentary. Should be interesting
in a tragic Warholian sort of way. Here is a
link to what the Village Voice said
6:30 PM, September 19th
Northwest Film Center's Whitsell Auditorium at the Portland Art Museum: 1219
SW Park Ave.

No podcast, but it is available in a 2,146 page flip-book, which I thought was rather odd.

The show was the worst piece of nonsense I've seen in a long time. A total hatchet job on art reducing Warhol to another commodity to talk about. And talk it did: almost four hours of commentary non stop with no more than five seconds for viewers to be allowed to look at the work without commentary or mood music. Pass on this one until they re-edit.
