Critic Reviews for A Walk Into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory
First-time director Esther Robinson proves that a dash of subjectivity in documentary isn't always a bad thing, showing a remarkable clarity of vision and thirst for knowledge in her superb 'A Walk Into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory'.
Combining contemporary interviews with Factory survivors and an astounding treasure trove of archival footage shot by Williams himself, the film is an enigmatic, atmospheric portrait of a guy apparently too nice for the notorious Warhol crowd.
We'll probably never know what became of Williams, but his short life and mysterious disappearance make for diverting viewing.
A Walk Into the Sea is Esther B. Robinson's documentary about Danny Williams, a former Harvard student who was a part of Andy Warhol's Factory scene.
Audience Reviews for A Walk Into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory
This recent documentary provides another glimpse at one of the Factory's peripheral players. The recent conversations with various associates (Maysles, Name, Berline, Cale, Paul Morrissey) and members of Williams' family are of some interest, but the highlights are the clips of Danny Williams' own films. In contrast to Warhol's own fascination with long takes and tedium, Danny uses blistering strobe-like editing. The effect is akin to what he must have been doing when lighting shows for the VU. Despite my mixed reaction to the documentary itself, it's worth seeing if you have an interest in the subject or if you want to see some striking experimental short films.
