To Edie,No More
27 May 2002 | by (Belgium,France) – See all my reviews

In this hip,beat and drugged out portrait of famed NY.city underground glitter Queen and palsy walsy of Andy Warhol,we have a trippy docudrama of that time period and how one very cutesy and impressionable little rich girl didn't survive the wear and tear of a life dedicated to drugs and big city glitter.Edie Sedgewick was almost the perfect model,being very camera friendly and celluoid exposed.She didn't take bad pictures and had THAT FACE,which drew attention and was seemingly just right for exposure.The trouble wasn't in her posing or ability to get the right profile,only in her devotion to staying on top of the world with drug induced glee and ever more satiable desire to repeat the scene.She couldn't grow out of her infatuation with being high and on top of the world,the ultimate speed freak,with a penchant for glitzy clothes and crowd of Warhol underground artsy fartsy hangers who lived faster than the human anatomy was meant. This movie captures her at her worst and yet via flashback photo's, also at her prima dona prime,being one of Warhol's favorite underground side kicks and possible muses.For a wealthy Radcliffe girl from an estemmed family of strict heirarchy and upbringing,her troubles were best felt in the book "EDIE" by George Plimpton ,but also more than touched on in this movie,which also parodied her real life with more than a bit of candor.Since the movie was shot around her last days,and her apparent pathetic condition - PBD ,permanent brain damage, we are left with a shallow and uncharacteristic rendering of that fantastically cute and bubbly little Miss prissy innocence,stained by too many ciggs,pills,drinks, and shacks ups.A life of indulgence that got her to the point of the overall plot of the movie,wretched excess and the hallucinatory effects and spill over of that psychosis of conspiracies and mind confusing tricks that long term drug use and little sleep play upon the human condition.I remember reading in Plimptons book 'EDIE" that Paul America once went a whole year with only a 20 min. nap whilst on a bus in N.Y.city.Crazy times and crazy behavior was the theme of his life as well as Susan "Edie" in this movie and of course,their real alter ego lives that went nary too far past their prime,sadfully.
