July 24, 2009 - Warhol's Movies by Jonas Mekas

"You watch a Warhol film without being hurried. From the beginning it prevents the viewer from being in a hurry. The camera hardly moves from the spot. It remains foccused on the subject as if there were nothing more beautiful and important than this subject. We can look at it longer than we are accustomed to doing, and this gives the viewers an oppurtiunituy to clear their minds of everything. We begin to understand that we have never really seen what happens when hair is cut or how one eats. Although we have had out hair cut and we have eaten, we have never truly perceived the act of hair cutting or eating. The whole reality of our environment suddenly becomes interesting in a new way, we feel that everything has to be filmed in a different way." - Jonas Mekas
