Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Ciao! Manhattan has to be seen, probably more than once, to be fully comprehended. But if you don't have the time for repeat viewings, this dazzling 30th Anniversary Edition DVD, packed with revealing audio commentaries and interviews, helps place a very far-out movie within reach. Fallen star Edie Sedgwick, who died at age 28, three months after its completion, "plays herself in the role of Susan," a West Coast heiress who returns home after two years as the toast of New York's underground and three years of hospitalization. Model, actress, and poster girl for Andy Warhol's Factory scene, Sedgwick was the living proof of Warhol's "15 minutes of fame" maxim. But Ciao! Manhattan begins where Sedgwick's 15 minutes ended. The drug-addled Susan is picked up while hitchhiking by Butch Wesley Hayes, a freewheeling goofball whose greatest ambition is to build a flying saucer. Butch returns Susan to her Malibu mansion and is hired by her socialite mother to keep the girl company between electrotherapy sessions. From that point on, any similarity to an actual movie plot is purely coincidental. As Susan regales Butch with a surreal tale based on her New York glory days, the movie cuts between those black-and-white interludes -- filmed in 1965 with Factory scenesters Viva, Paul America, and Brigid Berlin -- and her semiconscious, semi-naked present in 1971. Sedgwick's wasted, junkie-thin body is reason enough to believe she isn't acting but living her part, a fact that makes the movie as repellent as it is compelling. Paul Leo

    I Also Recommend:

    Edie Sedgwick was one crazy dame . . .

    This movie/documentary was interesting. Not well acted or filmed and everybody has an annoying voice, but all in all it captured the experience of the corrupted 60's.
    All the characters in the movie are basically "acting" as themselves through a script, although some of them use a different screen name (which makes it confusing), like Edie goes under the name Susan but the movie still covers her life as Edie Sedgwick.
    I liked watching the black and white lost films of Andy Warhol's factory, and when Edie/Susan would tell personal stories about her f-ed up family or her uncontrolable drug addiction - but there are many parts that don't make sense and you question why its even included.
    You have to have patience with this movie. A lot doesn't make sense or fall in chronological order but its still interesting to watch if you can believe it.
    Edie's breasts are exposed for the majority of her time on screen if that helps any of my persuasion to watch this film.
    Truth be told, if you're an Edie Sedgwick fan, get this movie to watch. In that respect the special features are better than the actual movie, they mainly talk just about Edie, and share rare pictures and videos of her.
    Give it a shot if you have the time.
