Warhol Makes 'Most Influential' Film List

Late artist ANDY WARHOL's film CHELSEA GIRLS has been voted into the top 100 most influential films. The three-and-a-half hour epic is rumoured to be the inspiration behind today's relentless reality TV genre. The 1967 movie was shot on location in eight rooms of New York's notorious Chelsea Hotel, featuring Warhol's glamorous entourage conducting their daily lives for the camera. Other films featuring in the list are THE BEATLES' 1964 A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, cult Seventies porn film DEEP THROAT and 1902 classic LE VOYAGE DANS LA LUNE by pioneering film-maker GEORGES MELIES. Radio Times film editor ANDREW COLLINS says, "This is not a list of the greatest movies ever made. "This is a chronological journey pinpointing those films that changed the course of the industry, for better or worse."
