One wonders whether the documentary format would have better served the material than this ill-focused drama. Since real-life family and observers chime in over the end credits, perhaps the filmmakers were thinking the same thing.
March 13, 2007
A brave bid to recreate a modern American tragedy, with a revelatory turn by its lead actress.

For some real insight into the sad demise of "Susan Superstar" read Jean Stein's eye-opening 'Edie: American Girl,' or rent "Ciao! Manhattan" instead.

Had the cast and promise to be so much better than what finally ended up on screen.

Pearce is as self-consciously annoying as I always found Warhol to be in interviews. Miller looks great, but so what? There's no there there.

...jerky, with a flat, uneven pace...

Exposition abounds, and while it may be necessary in light of the passage of time, it still makes Sedgwick's 15 minutes feel like 15 years. Still, Miller's performance is a thing of bewildered, brilliant debris.

Though the movie makes clear enough that Warhol's gift is vision%u2014he sees and exploits the shifting relationship between truth and fiction%u2014it lacks exactly that.
February 23, 2007
This isn't much more than an A&E biographical fluff piece -- with boobs, bad language and an attempt to turn the story into a warped love triangle.

Flashy but depressing film.

The film is most interesting in its portrayal of Warhol as a cold-hearted user.

[Miller] barely registers -- she's lightweight in an elemental way. Her utter lack of screen presence is the most monumental thing about her.

I think Sienna Miller does a really nice job of capturing Edie Sedgwick, who really was the fore-runner to Paris Hilton and a lot of other people who are just famous for being famous.

Sienna Miller lights up an otherwise mediocre recounting of the rise and fall of Andy Warhol muse Edie Sedgwick.
| Original Score: 2/4
February 17, 2007
Miller's touching performance is hamstrung by director George Hickenlooper's disconnected narrative and his overdone efforts to make the film look as messy and dirty as Warhol's underground films.

Factory Girl is weirdo weary, despite some vivacity spooned into it by Sienna Miller as Edie Sedgwick.

It's a movie without that emotional spark that lets us connect with her, or anybody else.

Details feel wrong; the pace is skittish; the rise to fatal hysteria is rapid and unconvincing. Finally you just lose all faith in it.

Once again, Sedgwick is being remembered less for who she was than who she knew.

February 16, 2007
When Sedgwick's whirl of liberation turns into addiction, clichés stall the plot.
