A few short essays. The same stills over and over.

But the essays are superb. Klaus Biesenbach sums the scene up, brings it to life, in just 4 pages.

The stills have become captivating in a month of viewing. Two hundred pages of them, effective black-and-white. How hard to stay still for 3 minutes. What's more erotic than Jane Holzer brushing her teeth?

The magic of Warhol is expertly conveyed. Here probably more than in the "Pop Box", the "Time Capsule 21", even the "365 Takes".

I haven't seen a Warhol film (or screen test) yet but this is the book that makes me want to. Do you have to be a Warhol fan already? Until you've seen something like this of the movies, you may not have actually been a Warhol fan. Hearing about the movies isn't enough. The silkscreens tend to be cold but there's lots of heat in these shots. In just these minimalist stills from minimallist movies, so much shows. It may be the closest I've come to experiencing Warhol.
