Ciao! Manhattan

More genuinely ghoulish than the entire oeuvre of George Romero, this creepy 1972 feature combines the remains of an unfinished 60s underground film starring Edie Sedgwick with color footage, shot shortly before Sedgwick's death, meant to fill out the holes in the story. None of it makes the dimmest sense, but the spectacle of Sedgwick's burnout (she is nearly comatose in most of the new footage) combined with her pathetic eagerness to let herself be exploited adds up to a morbidly fascinating document on the degeneration of a certain 60s mentality. You'll hate yourself in the morning, but you'll sit through it. John Palmer and David Weisman are the directors/perpetrators of record.
