The elegance and the decadence of two superstars, as Warhol understanded. A great cinematographic travel to East Hamptons. [Full review in Spanish]

An extraordinarily crafty invasion into the lives of Edith Beale and her daughter Edie.
April 18, 2016
The film resists a focus on the eponymous house's restoration, instead representing the women's chaotic lives as a non-linear series of moments.
April 14, 2016
As tender and revealing as it is completely bonkers.
August 6, 2015
Edith and Edie are like a toxic vaudeville team, joined not just by blood but affinity. They're three parts folie a deux to two parts shtick.

Classic ...
March 5, 2015
Watch 'Grey Gardens' long enough and the question of exploitation drops, leaving potential victims to become real people.
March 5, 2015
Old-money outcasts, or dropouts by lifestyle choice, the Beale ladies are not condescended to, smirked at or exhibited.
March 4, 2015
The beauty of this film is the dignity it imparts to the Beales, trapped in their pasts. They failed to launch, yet paradoxically, they continue to fly so high.
March 3, 2015
Richly detailed and boundlessly evocative, even at its most claustrophobic.

The Maysles and the Beales are equally culpable in giving the film its goon-show edge, which undoubtedly accounts for its pull on some audiences.

Rarely have high spirits and theatrical energy seemed like such a tragic waste; an era and its myths seem to be dying on-screen in real time.
December 12, 2013
GREY GARDENS is an American classic.
February 1, 2013
There is something unseemly in the choice to document the Beales at all.
August 12, 2012
Depressing cinma vrit film.
May 24, 2012
Tragicomic docu of aging eccentrics won't appeal to kids.
April 4, 2011
[VIDEO] "Grey Gardens" plays like an all too real version of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" It is a backdoor view into of New York's 20th century aristocracy.
August 24, 2009
A newly struck print of the [Maysles] brothers' 1976 classic Grey Gardens proves that their work is still plenty provocative--and especially so in this era of shallow celebrity docs.

Borderline exploitative. But the stark power of the dual portrait can't be denied.
