DVD: Warhol, For retail (Network)

The Independent Culture

Banned from TV on its release in 1973 for being offensive, this documentary made by the photographer David Bailey features interviews with the artist and his Factory acolytes conducted in the spirit of Warhol's own pioneering techniques – Bailey in bed with his subject, for instance, with no obvious script (or questions) to hand.

Not as groundbreaking now as it was when shot, it still has its moments, not least Warhol's explanation of why you should always sit in the middle of a car seat.
