Several months ago I reviewed George Hickenlooper's film "Factory Girl" about the rise and fall of art house film star Edie Segwick. I thought the film was a disaster. It appeared rushed and often times incoherent. Sienna Miller played Sedgwick, and several internet sites hyped her as a Best Actress candidate. Obviously, that didn't happen. The New York Times had a story
in the Sunday edition about this film, noting, "it’s a tale of how tensions between behind-the-scenes financiers and filmmakers, a frantic push for awards glory and the horrendous influence of bad buzz can doom a movie before it even opens." The Times furthers opines, "The new version confirms the mixture of empathy (for Sedgwick) and cold-eyed appraisal (of Warhol) evident in the theatrical version. And it confirms the extraordinary power of Ms. Miller’s fearless performance, as well as deepens the storytelling."
