The Movie: I Shot Andy Warhol (1996)
What Is It?: Mary Haron may have consciously tried to lionize a deeply ill person who committed a heinous act, but it was most likely that Lili Taylor was just so fucking good as would-be murderer Valerie Solanas that it’s her fault. Whatever the case is, this is magnetic viewing. Yo La Tengo make a cameo as The Velvet Underground, though Lou Reed understandably condemned the picture.
Why Today?: On this day in 1968, Valerie Solanas did the thing she does in this movie’s title.
