FACTORY MADE/FACTORY GIRL
Even though FACTORY GIRL, the new biopic about Edie Sedgwick, was made 11 years after BASQUIAT and I SHOT ANDY WARHOL, it’s hard not to compare the three films since they all purport to tell you the truth about Andy Warhol and the Factory. So, I contacted the two earlier films’ biggest fan, 14 year-old Mary Ann Casavant, to ask her what she thought of FACTORY GIRL. She wrote the following review:
I have always known that I should have been alive in the 1960s, but it’s been hard for me to figure out which part of the decade I really would have wanted to experience the most. For a while I thought I would want to be a hippy in the late 1960s, you know the long hair, Woodstock type? But after watching BASQUIAT and I SHOT ANDY WARHOL, I began to think that maybe I would want a member of the Factory instead.
