Duncan Fallowell: Andy Warhol in church - the movie!

Mournful, menacing, sinister: the score of a horror film, even. A camera leads us into an English parish church - Anglo-Saxon most probably with Norman add-ons (experts please advise) - as Duncan Fallowell asks Andy Warhol whether he believes in God. The eye lingers on the interiors, dark wood carvings - one resembling a pagan voodoo doll - before it is drawn to a pair of legs encased in light tan or cream drainpipes whose crotch folds set off a pronounced and artful scrotal bulge. The fly is open. In the man's leather gloved hands is a book. A book which bears Andy Warhol's name but which his Factory serfs wrote: the signature and the $ sign are at least Andy's: the sleb stamp. Church, fame. money, cock. Does Andy Warhol believe in an afterlife? The na-na-na-na-na repeat in his answer reminded me irrelevantly of this, the na-na-na-19. Now watch the flick, you hell-grazers. (Click image once to play)

Duncan Fallowell is a genius.

Madame Arcati said...

Yes, darling. You are.

Deliciously morbid.

This is very freaky. What's happened to Fallowell's sense of humour?

I just want my fifteen minutes, that's all I bloody ask!

Regards, God

Duncan Fallowell should direct the next Bond film. He is a master of suspense !

Madame Arcati said...

I think DF's movie is known in the trade as DARKLY humourous or DEEPLY playful. You do know that the English literary classes are FASHIONABLY atheistic right now? In the case of AN Wilson he doesn't know whether he's Myra or Ira.

I can't get the film to play. Can I have my money back?

St Peter of the MacTishoo said...

Is this a viral campaign for Duncan's ghost novel? Is it set in some old English building? The Ghost of Andy Warhol is a good title.

I don't know which is more nonsensical, Madame's critique or the movie itself. I wonder if the vicar would have approved had he known about the sexual undertones.

Sexual undertones? Christianity and Islam have replaced spiritual aspiration with sexual fascism. When did you hear Christianity say homosexuals are not inferior people? When did Islam do anything other than bully people into absurd sexual stereotypes?

The title page was fully inscribed for Mr Fallowell by the artist Andy Warhol

I love the music - what is it?

On the Youtube credits somebody called Fredi Hyde-Thompson is mentioned. Sounds cute.

The Google search engine says 'This video has been removed by the user'. But it hasn't. So the video itself is a ghost.

Fabulous

An a big kiss to one an all!

The cleverest bit of this is at the end when the camera points to the floor with it simplication of death or hellfire, at least that's how I see it. Mr F has a real talent for Gothic moviemaking, would strongly urge him to make short for one of the film festivals. Happy Fri the 13th!

I can't read this piece without getting Duncan's cock in my eye. You couldn't shift it a bit?

No, the cleverest bit is at the VERY end when the screen goes blank-black but the amazing music continues.

I see The Social Shuttle has pickede this up too.

Count Dracula said...

Mon ami!

Joe Dalessandro said...

Great stuff

Madame Arcati said...

The Social Shuttle is Australia's civiliser and cannot be faulted. It is the pioneer of the nation's post-hetero fetish.

AA Baboon said...

Who is the man with the pronounced scrotal sac, which as Arcati notes with seasoned crotch-gazing accuracy, is artfully arranged?; the Mona Lisa of the lap. Gosh, where did that come from?

Coral Reefer said...

I'm settling down to a lovely evening with this. I play it again and again, meditating on the ultimate mysteries, while the home-grown socks it to me. Many thanks, Sir or Madam, for shooting it my way. Are there any more from the same stable?

Please ask Mr Fallowell which church this is. So wonderful.
