Andy Warhol’s experimental films and pleasure-seeking persona led the pop culture charge of the 1960s. Filmed in a cramped kitchen, and starring the nubile Edie Sedgwick, Kitchen is a seemingly scriptless and directionless film, but one that offers a pointed look into the mindset of a generation. Norman Mailer said, “… A hundred years from now people will look at Kitchen and say, ‘Yes, that is the way it was in the late Fifties, early Sixties in America. That’s why they had the war in Vietnam. That’s why the rivers were getting polluted. That’s why there was typological glut. That’s why the horror came down. That’s why the plague was on its way.’ Kitchen shows that better than any other work of that time.”
