Grey Gardens

Grey Gardens ★★

Maybe you had to be there at the time - I really don't see all the fuss about this one. Cinema verite clearly influenced by Warhol's work from ten years before but, unlike most of the Warhol I've seen, this is genuinely boring and depressing and doesn't transcend freak show status at all. Quite interesting to speculate on the relationship between the two characters and the camera - the older Edie in particular seems spectacularly oblivious to it all.
