I assume the Rotterdam description was written by the festival programmer,
not the producers:
I'm not sure how much of a "secret" the Smith influence on Warhol was. But
the description is probably written for general festival audiences.
The doc has its own website with clips from the film. I have had trouble
playing the clips, but people can get a sense of the interviews and the
interview style. I'm not exactly sure what was meant by the claim "The
interviews in Jordan's piece are skewed and lacking many important facts."
The talking heads seem to be a mix of the usual suspects and personal
assistants so I'm not really sure what "direction" the interviews would be
skewed (other than generally positive).
Out of curiosity: Is the "Photos" clip on the website (a discussion of
Smith's photography) the section of the film that is missing the higher
resolution images? Will the "Ken Burns Effect" be used as extensively in
the final cut, or will a different strategy be used once you have the higher
