What to know

critics consensus

Self absorbed piece of Warhol/New York art scene cine-marginalia, which probably should have stayed exactly that, seeing as no-one seems to remember a great deal about the time anyway. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Face Addict

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (8)

  • Audiences already interested in the period will enjoy Face Addict best, but Bertoglio makes it surprisingly inclusive and accessible.

    March 12, 2009 | Rating: 3/4
  • It's narrated with ear-tearing pretentiousness by snapper Edo Bertoglio, primarily as an attempt to get over his past - he should have concentrated on getting over himself.

    August 22, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Contemporary footage of various pseuds, wannabe artists and hangers-on fails to establish what made any of them interesting in the first place, and if you don't revere the cult of Warhol, the entire project looks quite pointless.

    August 22, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I start to think there should be a charity called Amnesia International, which compels forgetfulness in former hangers-out with Andy Warhol.

  • The film is flatly shot, as though to illustrate the dimensional difference between stills photography and cinematography.

  • Another week, another snippet of Warhol cine-marginalia.

  • This documentary about the Big Apple's artistic community in the Seventies and Eighties makes the Black Hole Of Calcutta seem more enticing.

    August 22, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • But some are capable of articulacy and Bertoglio provides the odd ghostly image: primarily, middle-aged fashionista Wendy Whitelaw, who sprays her suburban lawn in regulation Factory chic. The happy ending is welcome, too.
