BLUE MOVIE: A FILM BY ANDY WARHOL





Narrated by DAN BUSKIRK




Directed by ANDREW REPASKY McELHINNEY





~FREE~





Blue Movie, says Andy Warhol, is about the war in Viet-Nam. What it shows is two of Andy’s superstars in the most intimate of sexual relations. On an October afternoon in 1968, Viva and Louis Waldron borrow David Bourdon’s New York City apartment for a day. They make love, fix some food, and take a shower. The inimitable Viva, zanily on target, converses with Louis about a variety of personal and social problems, and the dialogue has a witty zest, which is often missed when the movie is screened. Blue Movie may be the ultimate erotic film.



“A Warhol film promises or presupposes nothing, and achieves, therefore everything.”

--Parker Tyler; Sex, Psyche, Etcetera in the Film
