CGiii Comment

Despite its flimsy veneer of fiction - this is Edie's story and final testament - it's sad, very sad, she died shortly after completion.

Obviously, the exploitation involved is beyond redemption - is now appropriate to speak the truth?

Edie was a rich kid with a hefty trust fund, she was quite pretty, not beautiful.

She bought her way into Warhol's inner sanctum and, let's face it - nothing in terms of filmmaking came out of The Factory that was any good - including everything by Edie.

This film simply continues the exploitation - even more so.

Shameful.
