Film-maker David Cronenberg believes late artist Andy Warhol predicted the September 11th (01) terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. The director thinks the artist, who died in 1987, foresaw the terrorist atrocities and symbolised the disaster in his work. Cronenberg says, "The images of people jumping out of the buildings - he had already done paintings like that. "It was a bizarre prophecy. He was very prophetic and accurate in his understanding of America, of commercialism, of capitalism, of its flaws and strengths."
