Factory Girl

Well, both of you know that I love the whole Warhol scene. I was all set to see this last night until I read the reviews. Every one of them bad. I know we can't always go by the critics but for this one, I really wanted it to work. Kind of like Capote did. So if any of you have seen it, kindly report and maybe I'll spend the $11.00 they want to watch this 1 1/2 hour movie.

You know besides Edie, there were many other superstars worthy of the spotlight. Candy Darling, Holly Woodlawn. These were the people in which Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side" was about. Perhaps a movie with a focus on these "superstars" would be good idea. Throw in some Nico and Divine and you've got a great cast. But you'd have to get a really good Warhol. Bring back Bowie!!

Matinee at best! I have not seen it, but I 1) Love Edie and read that book about her in like 1982. 2) Dislike Sienna Miller, one of the most overrated celebs of the past few years and, to be honest, only known because of her association with a man. Maybe this movie will change that, but...

Xo, you're not the only one who's said that they dislike Sienna. My friend here didn't want to see it for the same reason. Yeah, actually I'm just waiting for the rental on this one or better yet - cable. ha.

BTW: Nice pic of you!
