Avant-Garde, Experimental
In one of Andy Warhol's finest films, a 1965 drama of narcissism and its opposite, Edie Sedgwick "plays" movie actress Lupe Velez—sleeping, eating a meal, having her hair cut, and lolling around in a fancy apartment with Warhol's trademark mix of stylish camp and languorous anomie. A color scheme that seems to echo Sedgwick's skin and hair yields to a moving depiction of Velez's death—she was found with her head in her toilet bowl. Poor sound quality makes the dialogue mostly incomprehensible, though this doesn't matter much.
