Warhol's Best Edie Portrait
6 August 2002 | by (Hollywood, USA) – See all my reviews

POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL is Andy Warhol's best Edie Sedgwick film, along with LUPE, her last film for Warhol. It's split into two parts, Edie out of focus, and Edie in focus trying on clothes. There is no plot, it's a character study/documentary of Edie Sedgwick, Warhol's most famous superstar, and it's great to watch. The first half is beautiful, out-of-focus mystery, like nothing I've ever seen before. The second half Edie talks to someone off-screen while getting stoned, trying on clothes, and showing off her fabulous legs. It's hard to describe, it's very much a 60's period piece, but it transcends that somehow by getting the viewer to feel sympathy for Edie, she's so harmless and tragic and ambitious all at once, she radiates the hope of youth, and somehow that's all captured by Warhol's camera. If you've never seen any of Warhol's experimental films of the mid-1960's, this is a great one to start with.
