What to Do Thursday: Fashion Wars, Magnificent Obsession, Edie Sedgwick, Jeanne Dielman, and Liz Renay
Fashion: brought to you with a good soundtrack and a style-off photo competition. Inevitably, we assume David Bowie's "Fashion" tune will greet your ears at some point. Fashion Wars Live at Ultra Lounge.
An examination of a woman's life using all the old-school technical and artistic cinematic choices that film buffs relish: long takes, real-time visuals, minimal dialogue. Plus, it was made by a 25-year French film-maker for a paltry sum. What have you done lately? Jeanne Dielman at Film Forum.
In this case, Edie Sedgwick is not Warhol's former muse, be warned: it's a guy in heels and sequined dresses who sings songs about pop culture stars like Michael J. Fox. Sounds crazier than the original Edie! Edie Sedgwick at Monkey Town.
