13 Most Beautiful...Music For Andy Warhol's Screen Tests: A Good One #33
13 Andy Warhol Screen Tests (mostly static high contrast black and white silent films of photogenic people in closeup) of Superstars like Edie Sedgwick, Nico, Lou Reed, and Dennis Hopper synced up to music by Dean & Britta (Galaxie 500, Luna). That's it. It's like watching an oil painting while listening to music, or flipping through someone's old photo album and jamming to laid back indie rock. Fascinating, and I'm giving it a good review because it achieves what it sets out to do. The music is lovely, the films are lovely; but it's probably a test of patience for most viewers.
