Audience Reviews for Beauty #2

On the surface it is essentially Edie Sedgwick and Gino Perschio sitting on a bed, drinking, making out, talking to Chuck Wein. However, it has a deeper meaning. Edie is being pulled at from 3 different directions, she has Gino pestering her in a physical manner (wanting to make out), Chuck is interrogating her motives and thoughts (kind of like a little voice inside your head), and the camera serves as another POV/character; it is capturing her every move. The camera is centered on Edie. The camera, Chuck, and Gino make up a triangle w/ Edie in the middle. The light is entirely on Edie, making it difficult to see her facial expressions but also seeming like a light suitable for interrogating someone. Another though is that Edie is just another of Warhol's superstars, just a number, just the 2nd Beauty; there was one before her and there will be many after, she is a stereotype and a product/creation.
