I Shot Andy Warhol (1996)

Directed by Mary Harron
USA : 103 minutes : Biographical Drama
Valerie Solanas is a self-described lesbian feminist who makes her living with a street hustle here and some prostitution there, but whose real drive in life is radical feminist writing. Through her friend Candy Darling she connects with Andy Warhol and his Factory gang, and comes to believe that he is going to produce one of her plays. He keeps stringing her along, and she keeps getting more desperate, and finally, in 1968, she goes over the edge. This is her story.

What some people think about this movie...

A dark & gritty story, it is at times hard to watch but imminently interesting. Lili Taylor is FANTASTIC as Valerie. She gives her just the right edge & enough manic energy to bring her character's brand of insanity to celluloid life. You'll be sympathetic for, afraid of & disturbed by Lili's Solanas. I don't know if I could recommend this movie as it is pretty ugly in places but so was Valerie's reality. If you like Lili Taylor (which I do), Andy Warhol, or truth-based socio- political revolutionary violence films, this is for you.
