"Our Kind of Movie" : The Films of Andy Warhol

[Paperback]

Douglas Crimp, Andy Warhol

description

Monograph on the video work of Andy Warhol by Douglas Crimp. Comprised of six essays with accompanying video stills. "Crimp argues that Warhol's films make visible new, queer forms of sociality. Crimp does not view these films as cinéma-vérité documents of Warhol's milieu, or as camera-abetted voyeurism, but rather as exemplifying Warhol's inventive cinema techniques, his collaborative working methods, and his superstars' unique capabilities. Thus, if Warhol makes visible new social relations, Crimp writes, that visibility is inextricable from his making a new kind of cinema." -- publisher's statement.
