An truely honest portrayal
22 February 2004 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the best film I've seen, not only about the shooting of Andy Warhol by Valerie Solanis, but about the whole factory scene full stop.

The film doesn't try to get a message across, it paints a picture of what actually happened. It shows that Valerie Solanis, although intelligent and mistreated, was above all a psychopath and it shows that probably Andy Warhol and definitely the rest of the factory did not really care about Valerie or for that matter, feminism at all.

This film does sort of come off for some reason as being pro-feminism, which is a good thing, but it doesn't try to hide the wrong doings of Valerie Solanis.

Highly recommended.
