Odd, maybe TOO odd about a former fashion model who goes home to detoxify her drugged body. Somehow a native Texan wanders in and find out her life story... Or something. It's all very seventies abstract and it's both very fascinating and very boring. Worth it for the curiosity factor if anything. Plus Wesley Blake is easy on the eyes.
I was mesmerized by Butch, who was played by Wesley Hayes, but I can find absolutely no information on him from that movie on. He did a tremendous job as the naive but willing youngster brought into all the craziness that was Edie. What happened to him?
Saw CIAO! MANHATTAN (1972) on TCM last night. Kudos to them for showing films like this--but it's a lousy film with a few good things. This is the experimental film blending a B&W film from the 60's and a color film from '72. The script makes no sense and most of the performances are horrid (they dub an older actor with a weird carton voice). But there's some decent music and the fascinating freak show of seeing Edie Sedgwick, the Warhol Factory Girl, beautiful, fragile, stoned and falling apart. She's interesting, but it feels exploitive to the max to watch her stumbling around with a shirt. 1 star.
This interesting train wreck of a movie captures a time through a different time, each equally fucked up. CIAO! MANHATTAN more than anything, through all of its nonsense, captures the sad and miserable life of Edie Sedgwick who appeared to have it all when she in fact had nothing. She participates in her own exploitation and destruction all for the camera. CIAO! MANHATTAN cannot be deemed a good film, it's so totally inept, but it is an extraordinary work that captures the inner workings of a very sad life that was not destroyed by fame but by family and "friends."
Pretty bizarre, but it did capture the glamorous aspect of the 60s well.
must see cinema verite
A unique genre, and a disturbing tribute. If you're interested in Edie's turbulent life and ultimate demise, this is a must see. On its own as an art film I quite enjoyed it visually and musically.
I like the disjointed nature of this film, it's a lot like a drug experience. Video monitoring, wireless car phones, extraterrestrial's, speed and fruit pies all come together in this late 60's early 70's film treasure.
'clumsily pieced together film taken from two unfinished Sedgwick vehicles'
this is incomprehensible, exploitative and depressing. it's also totally worth watching.
