Warhol Screen Test: Lou Reed

The above clip is from a series of Andy Warhol's famous screen tests (1964-1966) that were originally conceived as film-portraits, basically portraits done on film rather than canvas. Warhol covered the "who's who" of eccentric artists...from poet Allen Ginsberg to artist Salvador Dali. The clip is set to Reed's "I'm Not A Young Man Anymore". You just can't beat the cool swagger that Lou encompasses...all rebellious, all rock n' roll..
