Edie Sedgwick,1960s heroine of decadence, is exploited from beyond the grave in this clumsily pieced together film taken from two unfinished Sedgwick vehicles -- one by Chuck Wein from 1967 displaying Edie at her peak as a Warhol star, and the other from 1970 by David Weisman and John Palmer, made when Edie appeared decimated from drug and alcohol addiction. The film is arranged in the form of a cinema verité examination of her life and lifestyle: the woman lives in an empty, covered-over swimming pool, surrounded by posters of herself. She prances around topless for a good portion of the film, the better to display the results of a generous addition of silicone. The film shows her reminiscing about the days when she was a "star" and when her drug highs were mellower. Sedgwick died of a drug overdose in 1971. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
