  • With dozens of interview subjects whose perspective doesn't only add historical context but their mere presence alludes to the film's key theme that no one sees the value of the Warhol's creation in exactly the same way.

  • Delightfully combines family memoir with photos and art history thru quick montages...She gets to essence of irony of pop art as aesthetic object mocking commercial culture.

  • The ups and downs of the titular Andy Warhol sculpture are as engaging as they are informative.
