Walk On The Wild Side and Candy Says being among the most influential songs in rotation on my Walkman during my formative years, and having had a deep fascination with Warhol and the New York of the 70s and early 80s (I moved here in 85, so I caught the tail end as a kindergartener), I was drawn to this documentary and laughed and cried the whole 90 minutes.

For anyone who likes old classic movies, 70s punk, and 80s pop art, this documentary will strike a chord. It tells all about the Candy who inspired some of the Velvet Underground’s greatest music.
