This is another film I watched over the holiday. It was hard to watch, yet I didn’t want to switch it off. It’s not about the music and scenes of the Velvet Underground or glamorized tales of Andy Warhol and his inner circle. The film, released in 2018, dramatizes the sobering, heartbreaking life of this 1960s icon, as she lived her final years in the late 1980s, while beginning in earnest to lay the groundwork for a brighter future.
There is no inspiration here, but something else makes it worth watching. It is a story of a real life, well dramatized with cooperation from her son, and based on witness accounts from her inner circle.
