Movie Info

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

Monotonous and nearly incomprehensible.

Two attempts at a movie spliced uneasily into one.

At bottom Ciao! Manhattan is cruel exploitation -- though the film is dedicated to Miss Sedgwick's memory, an ultimate indignity.

Not a great movie, but absolutely essential viewing.

Whether [Edie Sedgwick] is acting or stoned-for-real with a model's instincts propping her up, her performance is wonderful, highly amusing at all the right moments, yet melancholy in a way which is free of self-pity.

The film only seems to exploit her tragedy.

The narrative is rambling, but there are some genuine, inspired comic moments.

Ciao! Manhattan is ultimately a testament to the odd, elastic nature of the '60s.

Audience Reviews for Ciao Manhattan (Edie in Ciao! Manhattan)

Give credit to Edie Sedgwick's death for the popularity of this film, but even if she had lived it would've been an incredible and strange scrapbook of what the 1960's culture represented and how it worked. It's interesting to see because it's basically almost a documentary.
