Link to GreenCine Daily's "Warhol. UK." post

DIY Filmmaker Andy Warhol Weekend blog-a-thon continues: here's the opening paragraph from an '07 post by David Hudson re: an Andy Warhol films retrospective that happened in the UK (nice to see that David had linked back then to a post I did about the retrospective - !it's some kind of a web links time machine yo!):

" "Once upon a high time Andy Warhol's films were a revolution," recalls Glenn O'Brien in the Times of London. "I was a college student in the late 60s. I had been educated by John Ford, Howard Hawks, Frank Capra, Preston Sturges, but the films of urgent interest were those of Federico Fellini, Jean-Luc Godard and Warhol. I remember sitting through a whole evening's showings of Warhol's Lonesome Cowboys. It's hard to imagine today, but back then a Warhol film was a glimpse of a new world, a strange, weird, compelling, funny, scary world. Warhol film was for the initiated, and so it was also initiatory." Via Sujewa Ekanayake. And Gaby Wood talks with O'Brien for the Observer."
