While perusing the NYT today, a dateline naming "Bethel Park" caught my eye. Why would the New York Times publish a story about a comfortable Pittsburgh suburb?
Because Andy Warhol is buried there. (Aside: I like when newspapers coyly print stories timed with the release of something from popular culture). Factory Girl is a movie about Andy Warhol's coterie and one of his primadonna starlets, Edie Sedgwick (played by semi-famous actress Sienna Miller). This film was as self-indulgent as Warhol's bohemians. The movie lacked a plot and I'm loathe to classify it as a character study. Sedgwick was so shallow as to be unlikable. After 20 minutes of self-indulgence, there was nothing left to study.
