Warhol kneels before Hitchcock. 2 geniuses:
1 brilliant filmmaker, 1 terrible filmmaker.
Warhol’s 1971 interview of Hitchcock is all about murder. The most interesting part is when the artist refers to having been shot in 1968:
Andy Warhol: Well I was shot by a gun, and it just seems like a movie. I can’t see it as being anything real. The whole thing is still like a movie to me. It happened to me, but it’s like watching TV. If you’re watching TV, it’s the same thing as having it done to yourself.
Alfred Hitchcock: Yes. Yes.
