Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The story of Valerie Solanas, the radical feminist and author of SCUM Manifesto (Society for Cutting Up Men) who made headlines in 1968 when she attempted to kill Andy Warhol, I Shot Andy Warhol moves beyond the simplistic view of Valerie as a deranged lesbian acting in revenge for being shunned by the Factory crows to present a complex figure whose brilliance and passion were clouded by mental instability and a history of abuse.

Format: Paperback
'I Shot Andy Warhol' was the debut film of Mary Harron ('American Psycho'), co-authored with Daniel Minahan ('Series 7: the Contenders').

The screenpay chronicles the life of Valerie Solanas, a radical feminist, author of the 'SCUM Manifesto', and shows her attempts at getting a play produced by Pop Artist Andy Warhol.

This book includes the screenplay for the film, an introduction by Mary Harron, eight pages of pictures, and Valerie Solanas's 'SCUM Manifesto'.

It will definitely be enjoyed by fans of the film who have an interest in Valerie Solanas, with more information of her in the introduction, and one of her works.

For fans of the movie, I reccomend the book 'POPism' about the Warhol Sixties, for more information about the Factory Scene. I also reccomend 'Factory Girl', a film about Edie Sedgwick. It's not as good as 'I Shot Andy Warhol', and has factual inaccuracies, but is all-around an enjoyable film.

I know I shouldn't, BUT I LOVE Mary Harron! What bravery to simply tell the truth! Mary takes on all the difficult projects - 'nough said on that note. If you know how literary history works, and I believe Valerie Solanas did, you knew that her manifesto would become a feminist classic, even while she, herself, was lying unconscious somewhere. The sticky relationship with Andy Warhol mirrors similar relationships with the artist, who seemed to lift people to unbelievable heights, then drop them to unbelievable lows. Read the SCUM Manifesto with a grain of salt, or without. Read between the lines. Read it literally. Any way you read it, you will be transported into a mind on fire.

"I Shot Andy Warhol" was an amazing movie with a great screenplay that swept the characters of the film through the surrealism and strangeness of the sixties, and this is the screenplay. It's great how the mental degeneration of the main character is depicted so subtly.
