–The actress playing Brigid Berlin is not fat enough. I mean compared to the waify appearances of Sienna Miller and Mena Suvari she’s healthy, but nothing to justify the Andy Warhol character telling her to lose 25 pounds.

–The fake Dylan character is a tool. And I’m not convinced that he was really the good guy in any sort of scenario, definitely not better than Andy Warhol. Both of ’em were essentially all about love and theft. However, if I were Bobby, I’d sue too. Besides, how could he have fit Edie in with Joan Baez and Sara Lownds, other than maybe a fling.

–Why does there have to be a Good Guy and a Bad Guy here. It’s so contrived. The point of that time is that the lines between Bad and Good were seriously blurred.

–I can’t take Jimmy Fallon seriously in any other role than giggling next to Tina Fey on Weekend Update.

–Do they have to show Edie as a nonstop trainwreck or an object of art? Can they show her real life when she was funny and smart and what made her undone? Because her trainwreck transition just didn’t seem real to me.

    I walked in dreading it and it was worse then I thought. I thought it was so horrible I don’t even know where to begin, and I’ve seen a lot of bad biopics. The dropping acid and attempted rape scene? Where the fuck did that come from? It was like it was written by a 17 year old who just started reading about the 60s.
