For Hickenlooper and Mauzner, Sedgwick is more interesting for whom she slept with than who she was. Their movie may indict Warhol for...

TV Guide

Despite, or perhaps because of, a flurry of 11th-hour recutting and reshoots -- the film feels rushed and unfocused.

Chicago Tribune

It's lively but chaotic and evasive. The period re-creation switches on and off. We get a sense of what the silver-walled Factory was like,...

Guy Pearce's portrayal of Andy Warhol was absolutely horrendous. One cannot visualize the pain and suffering of his character (though there was not much) if he wears his hair like that. Now, the...

Factory Girl

By harrykatz
Sienna Miller gives a bravura performance as Edie Sedgewick and Guy Pearce is a natural to play Andy Warhol. Edie's life is traced as she leaves a Cambridge art school to arriving in New York and...

I was in the mood to experience the whole 60's art scene and considering that Warhol and Edie Sedgwick were both iconic of that period, I thought the movie was fabulous in capturing the mood of the...

Sienna Miller Captures the Spirit of Edie Sedgwick

Days after seeing this film, it is Sienna Miller's performance that sticks in my head. I simply could not tell where Sienna ended and Edie began. Anyone could see why Warhol was captivated by her. ...
