Quotes about I Shot Andy Warhol

"Periodically, [Valerie] Solanas is seen, in black and white, reading to the audience from her Manifesto—a document that seems to be less on the lunatic fringe the more she reads."
-- Mary G. Hurd (source)

"Schooled in the Factory period by years of working on documentaries dealing with the subject, [Mary] Harron built an eerie time capsule. With its intoxicating depiction of drugs, freedom, art and misogyny, the film [I Shot Andy Warhol] replicates the chilling and forgotten preconditions of feminism."
-- B. Ruby Rich (source)
