Synopsis:
Forged in the white light, white heat of the New York avant-garde scene in the mid 1960s, The Velvet Underground blazed a trail so far ahead of their con-temporaries they often appear to have dropped fully formed into the history popular music. Aside from the image and iconography, so perfectly designed by maverick manager Andy Warhol, the experiments with form and sound that forked in tandem with crucial melodies and outrageous lyrics, moved infamous music writer Lester Bangs to declare that the Velvets 'started modern music'.
'The Velvet Underground - Vanishing Point' is the finest documentary film about the group yet to emerge and features a wealth of material, including: rare musical performances; rarely seen promo films; archive from Andy Warhol's private film collection; obscure interviews with and footage of Lou Reed, Andy Warhol, Sterling Morrison and John Cale; interviews made exclusively for this film with Moe Tucker, Doug Yule and Billy Name; review, comment and criticism from such luminaries as ex-Village Voice music editor Robert Christgau, author of 'From The Velvets To The Voidoids', Clinton Heylin, Total Rock DJ, author and journalist, Malcolm Dome, Luna mainman Dean Wareham and many others.
