One of Andy Warhol’s best films, POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL is a profoundly moving portrait by accident. . . . Sedgwick’s manic qualities, her compulsive talking, her scattered thinking, and her charm all seem to be magnified by the visual obscurity. When we do finally get to see her properly, we are also “seeing” her in a new light, informed and transformed by our inability to see her in the first half.
