    There are a lot of priceless scenes here that didn't make into Grey Gardens, so this 'bonus material' is a true gift for the fans who would love to see more of those two women after three decades, even if for others it may just feel like more of the same, though.

    Just bizarre...... a story of a mother and her grown child with too much money living in seclusion, makes you realize what you don't want !!

    Pretty much the same as the original Grey Gardens, just like a extended version. But, it somehow help building the entire picture around them, supplementing with additional information and a broader perspective. Every scene is a new dress and a new look, actually making Edie a icon of fashion.

    Probably could have left it alone after the first one, but still interesting and worth the watch.

    An extra look at the lives of two outrageous individuals, with footage worthy of being in the original piece, but superb as it is in clips.

    I know crazy people are great for documentaries and I know documentaries are supposed to be objective, but this film just irritated me. With main characters that won't stop talking (even over each other's sentences), the banality of it all felt like a film by John Cassavetes mixed with a forced stay with those relatives you have that you're forced to visit, but in reality you need to put them in a mental institution.

    It was okay, but it was pretty much just footage that they didn't use for Gray Gardens cobbled together. It served no real purpose.
