Focus Andy!! Focus!!
12 October 2000 | by czar-10See all my reviews

Poor little rich girl is a two reel film that came out of the Factory just as Warhol was staring to include sound and camera movement. The film is mainly about Edie Sedgewick she is the sole focus of the film. (though not in focus in the first reel) Reel one starts of with Edie lounging on the bed, she does not talk much, the second reel is mercifully in focus and here she talks about her fur coat, her spent inheritance, and many other boring stuff. This film is strictly for Edie/Warhol fans only, if you can sit through the first reel then there is something wrong with you. Warhol has a knack of infuriating, and provoking audiences with his devoid of narrative, boring subject matter 'films'. "is it art or are you making fun of me Warhol?" In fact what makes Warhol films fun is the characters and this one lacks any spontaneity that is in other films like Chelsea Girls.
