THE VELVET UNDERGROUND AND NICO
1966, MoMA, 70 min, USA, Dir: Andy Warhol

Subtitled “A Symphony of Sound,” this film captures the alternative rock quartet, plus chanteuse Nico, rehearsing together at Andy Warhol’s Factory. Consisting of one long, improvised jam (which gets stopped by New York City cops, presumably because of noise complaints), the film pulsates with wild zooms and kinetic camerawork courtesy of Paul Morrissey.
