In his first documentary, one of the truly great American indie filmmakers, Todd Haynes (FAR FROM HEAVEN, SAFE, I’M NOT THERE) turns his prodigious imagination and brilliant sensibility to a subject truly worthy of his attention, The Velvet Underground, the seminal and always completely original band that embodied the cutting edge of rock, art, gender, and New York City itself in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Its members included Lou Reed, who would go on to even greater solo fame, John Cale, who walked—or, perhaps more accurately, obliterated—a line between rock and contemporary classical music, distinctive European singer and icon Nico, and rock solid drummer Maureen Tucker. Adding Haynes to the band makes The Velvet Underground greater than ever, even for those less versed in the group. “Making ingenious use of split-screen, experimental montage and densely layered images and sound over two fabulously entertaining hours, Haynes puts his distinctive stamp on the material while crafting a work that could almost have come from the same artistic explosion it celebrates”—Hollywood Reporter.
