  • James Rasin's documentary is surprisingly the first to focus on one of Warhol's biggest attractions, the attractive male-to-female transsexual Candy Darling, best known for inspiring Lou Reed's song "A Walk on the Wild Side." show more

  • The film isn't blinded by Candy's beauty and celebrity; it digs critically, if still empathetically, beneath. show more

  • As fascinating as the material is, like so much of popular culture it doesn't hold up well out of context. show more
