Final cannibalization of Edie
10 March 1999 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

This might register as the most disturbing movie I've ever seen--and I've seen a lot of Italian cannibal movies. Edie Sedgwick, the most tragic (because most beautiful) of all contemporary tragic beauties, undergoes her last humiliation in this nightmarish fake-"underground" movie, which suggests the movie the Manson Family might have made if Sharon Tate hung around them for a few weeks. Rebounding from a stint in rehab, and a meteoric rise in the Warhol Factory world, "Susan" (Edie) frugs topless in her tent in the swimming pool behind Mummy's house, while a hitchhikin' hippie from Houston thinks in voiceover narration, "Maybe now I get me some poont!" For anyone nostalgic for the idealism of the Summer of Love, CIAO! MANHATTAN is essential viewing--its cold-blooded delectation of its terminal heroine makes old stoners like Dennis Hopper and Oliver Stone look like pantywaists. Why Sedgwick participated in this drooly, tabloid-voyeuristic cartoon of her steep decline is hard to imagine: Her famous beauty is in such staggering ruins that the filmmakers evilly pose her against a poster of her winsome debutante self to mark the damage. The experience of watching this movie resembles seeing a once-dewy ingenue dancing a jig for coal miners to buy a ten-dollar rock of crack.
