Essential viewing for the fan who thinks they've heard it all. Shot inside Warhol’s Factory in gritty black and white, Warhol’s The Velvet Underground and Nico documents an hour-plus jam session that gets cut short by the police. Sunglasses, leather jackets, cigarettes, endlessly cycling amp feedback, go-go boots, and Nico’s tambourine-playing son set the mood for the ultimate in ’60s New York cool.
