On Andy Warhol’s Sleep

A good number of years ago I picked up a book called Imagining Reality by the film maker and writer Mark Cousins. A compendium of essays and anecdotes concerning documentary film. None more funny than this letter written to the Cinema Journal by a theatre manager who had shown Andy Warhol’s experimental film Sleep…and had had some interesting reactions from the audience.

I have always loved that last line.
