Regarded as one of the most important films of 1960s postwar underground cinema, Chelsea Girls is Andy Warhol's most thorough engagement with dual projection. Featuring 23 of Warhol's Factory "superstars" riffing on their lives, their loves, and their psychological peculiarities, the film stands as a fascinating look into the '60s New York demimonde, a radical investigation into how cinematic perception is conditioned by the conventions of the single screen, and, like all of Warhol's work, a tongue-in-cheek test of viewer expectations.
