An interesting film by Mary Harron based on the shooting of Andy Warhol by  Valerie Solanas the author of the SCUM manifesto which can be downloaded here.

I am very pleased that this film was directed by a talented female director who also directed one of my all time favorite films, American Psycho . Lili Taylor delivered her best performance to date in my opinion and was fantastic as the enraged Valerie Solanas .

I don’t love this film but I am in love with Valerie, a woman so intelligent that craved experience and for her voice to be heard, unfortunately she died from and in poverty the way that she had lived most of her life.

I find it hard to rate this film because it’s a fantastic story about an interesting person but the film itself was o.k.

A recommended watch and a rating of 6 out of 10.
