Movie Info

Focusing on Andy Warhol's mid-'60s ingenue apprentice, Edie Sedgwick, this film reprises two different vehicles filmed in 1967 and 1970. The film immerses viewers in the life of a girl known as Susan (Sedgwick), who lives at the bottom of a water-less pool in Santa Barbara, bemoaning her fate and prizing her glory days while striding around topless. Warhol fans will be fascinated, but the specter of Sedgwick's overdose just one year later hangs overhead. The film is also known as Edie in Ciao! Manhattan.

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.

You'll hate yourself in the morning, but you'll sit through it.

Alternately garrulous, sparse, naïve, sardonic, clumsy, clever, intolerably sad, rawly funny.

Not a great movie, but absolutely essential viewing.

Audience Reviews for 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.
