    This is a movie about power, and its spectacle is that of a woman losing all of it. show more

    If not for Sienna Miller's engaging portrayal of Edie Sedgwick, Factory Girl would have little to offer. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    For Hickenlooper and Mauzner, Sedgwick is more interesting for whom she slept with than who she was. Their movie may indict Warhol for exploiting Sedgwick, but they're just as guilty. show more

    If the people involved in this project had wanted to tell the truth about Edie, they would have corroborated their "facts", which they clearly did not. \n\nLet's see now... Edie was never a heroin addict. They forget to mention she was bipolar years before the syndrome was accepted in the United States. Her brothers, Minty and Bobbie, and her father never molested her. She was bulimic, not anorexic. Minty was heterosexual, not homosexual. Bobby's death was an accident. Edie's death was an accident. Her maternal grandmother never drank alcohol. Her parents and her siblings never abandoned her. Her mother was never institutionalized and she is buried right next to Edie. Edie never had a 'ring' from Dylan.\n\nShe was never pregnant by Dylan. She was never in love with Warhol or Dylan. She didn't have electroshock therapy until the last two years of her life. Edie was horrified about Vietnam and constantly in fear that her brothers would be sent to war. The list of misrepresentation goes on and on and on.\n\nMost of Edie's family and friends refused to participate in this movie. Jean Stein refused to seel the rights to the memorial book on Edie to the makers of this movie.\n\nCan I give a minus five star opinion of this supposed "biopic"?

    In the beginning it seemed to be a little slow moving , but quickly after it took off and I found myself intrigued by the times it was suppossedly part of. The sad part is that it moved me so that the next day I wanted to find out more about Edie.Unfortunately Warhol has blocked her out of his past of which she seemed to be such a part of. If you are a hippie or flower child raised , or you experienced those times it makes for good watching .
