Far less insight than the flattest of E! True Hollywood Story segments

In Factory Girl, a jumbled account of the short life and photogenic hard times of the first Andy Warhol superstar, Edie Sedgwick, Sienna Miller makes Sedgwick into an archetypal over-confident blond with a mannered young Kathleen Turner croak.

Summing up a complex human being in two hours is like an MTV spot about Nelson Mandela cut to a Kanye West track. We don't really get to know Sedgwick at all.

True story of drugs and sex is for adults only.

As a bio-pic, Factory Girl is limited, but as a snapshot of Sedgwick and Warhol's fiery relationship, there is much to fascinate us.

Factory Girl is an effective evocation of a particular slice of recent history. The film benefits from Miller's turn as Edie, an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink performance that takes the poor girl from the heights and highs of fame to the depths and doom

les écrits de Mauzner n'arrivent malheureusement pas à rendre justice, voire même à ajouter le moindre commentaire critique, à leur source d'inspiration

Spoilt, rich, posh, vacuous and fame-obsessed - who better to play Edie Sedgwick? If she's acting or not, Miller is brilliant. Just a shame the film is so shallow too.

Edie Sedgwick's story is sad, but never appears important or interesting.

It's Sienna Miller's star that shines brightest in this heartbreaking cautionary tale.

Miller is a genuine surprise as the damaged star. But the film leaves her very much as it finds her: a clueless naive.

Sienna Miller brings bright eyes and shapeshifting commitment to a script that doesn't always deserve it.

Sienna Miller guarantees herself a bit more than 15 minutes with a strong performance in an otherwise dazed and confused film.

Kudos to Miller for her touching portrayal of a doomed icon. A shame the film's as substantial as one of Warhol's silver flotations.

There's no real need for Factory Girl; just go pick up that copy of Heat.

In all it's an unconvincing portrait, and as the Dylan clone says, "Empty, like one of those cans of soup..."

Sienna Miller is perfectly cast but the script barely scratches the surface and you never really get inside any of the characters.

One wonders whether the documentary format would have better served the material than this ill-focused drama. Since real-life family and observers chime in over the end credits, perhaps the filmmakers were thinking the same thing.

A brave bid to recreate a modern American tragedy, with a revelatory turn by its lead actress.

For some real insight into the sad demise of "Susan Superstar" read Jean Stein's eye-opening 'Edie: American Girl,' or rent "Ciao! Manhattan" instead.
