I don't really understand why Factory Girl proved to be a sloshy hit in the box office and ranked up nasty reviews. I managed to stream it online for free ( thanks sidereel) I have to say I quite enjoyed it ! I really did feel that Sienna Miller did a great job bringing the beautiful muse Edie Sedgwick to life. Her voice and mannerism and even the cigarette holding is reminiscent of Edie. When Sienna spoke it was Edie, not that I knew her personally, but after researching Edie a while back I felt Sienna was definitely on target. What did disturb me was Andy Warhol's character. Now knowing much about him other than seeing some of his work at the Tate Modern, I was disgusted and scared at his lack of leadership, his shallowness, and awful nature.

Still the Silver Factory was the place to be filled with chaos, madness, art, and friends it sounds like a dangerously exotic and inspirational place to work minus the drugs and sex. But the movie to me focused on the magnified relationship between Edie and Andy. A story about an artist and his muse. And being a designer myself I do see the advantages+pluses of having a muse in whatever form to inspire a designer. It makes me understand why designers like Lagerfield would fill up his studios with muses. People he considers inspirational in order for him to create.

Expect a tragic ending, other than that the movie was a beautiful glimpse into the life of the Silver Factory.
