Poor Little Rich Girl
Dear Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan fans - do you know the socialite Edie Sedgwick? Factory girl is based on the rise and fall of the famous Edie Sedgwick. I know Andy Warhol's artworks and Bob Dylan's various songs, but I had no idea of HER existence. It was very fascinating to watch. The movie's plot is very well written and the scenes are very catchy and very Andy Warholish.
This movie is tragic, emotional and heartbreaking. I highly recommend you all to watch this movie if you haven't. Though the media and Bob Dylan criticized this movie to a great extent, i still think the movie is a brilliant movie, where all people can relate to. Loneliness, fame, friendship, love, career, money, industry, etc. Bob Dylan's "Just Like a Woman" and "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat" from his 1966 album Blonde on Blonde are about Sedgwick. His 1965 #2 single "Like a Rolling Stone" was also reportedly inspired by her.
Sienna Miller plays beautifully as a Edie Sedgwick, Guy Pearce plays as a bad Andy Warhol, and Hayden Christensen spices the movie as a Bob Dylan.
I'll leave it for you to judge. Enjoy!
