    I am not sure how to feel about this film about a wealthy debutante that no one knows and is only remembered because of a unique/special relationship with Andy Warhol.

    This film also displays the exploitive nature of Andy Warhol and really makes him a despicable person.

    Guy Pearce has the stand out performance in this film and steals very scene which made me wonder if this was a film about Andy Warhol or Edie Sedgwick. This film seem to…

    Why Faye Dunaway chose to star in this film is little puzzling to me but perhaps she wanted to work with Ned Beatty again.

    This film just seems like a very big departure for both Faye Dunaway and Ned Beatty but this was the 80s and maybe they caught up in that time period of films. Incidentally, Ned Beatty is only maybe about 5 mins total in the film but he actually makes this film interesting and steals each scene he performs.

    Otherwise, this is just typical 80's fast action flick that is interesting because of Faye Dunaway and Ned Beatty.

    Finally watched all episodes of this season and whilst I can’t remember each episode this is my take away.

    Each episode was consistent with the main overall season theme.

    The main action sequences in each episode were fairly exciting and not excessively overbearing.

    However, the heavy morale theme of the film is very much a cliche at this point and very off putting. The filmmakers didn’t even try to make an interesting attempt to tackle these type of moral issues…
