A for Andy

I would give Ric Burns's "Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film," which aired last week, a solid A. Every major artist deserves this type of analysis. Most interesting part: Warhol's work ethic. The artist was always working. If something didn't work out, he moved onto the next project. Best part: all the archival footage of Warhol at the Factory. Second best part: Seeing a ton of A.W.'s commerical work. Weirdest part: Jeff Koons as a voiceover stand-in for Warhol. Weakest part: the number of times the word "genius" is uttered. Worst part: Wayne Koestenbaum comparing Warhol to Jesus Christ. (Image via
