Posted filed underFilm, Pop Art, Videos.

Andy Warhol’s film adaptation of the novel “A Clockwork Orange” by Anthony Burgess. Vinyl is included in the book “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die“.

Vinyl (1965) is a black-and-white experimental film directed by Andy Warhol at The Factory. It is an early adaptation of the novel A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, starring Gerard Malanga, Edie Sedgwick, Ondine, and Tosh Carillo, and featuring such songs as “Nowhere to Run” by Martha and the Vandellas, “Tired of Waiting for You” by The Kinks, “The Last Time” by The Rolling Stones and “Shout” by The Isley Brothers.

Vinyl is often credited as Sedgwick’s first appearance in film, although she in fact appeared in an earlier Warhol film. Sedgwick has no lines of dialogue in the entire film. Vinyl was filmed unrehearsed and was also performed live in various stage productions.
