Thursday To-Do: 'Factory Girl'

‘FACTORY GIRL'
7 p.m., Market Street Cinema. $7.50.

As “Andy Warhol: 15 Weeks of Fame” draws near its conclusion at the Arts Center, the Times is teaming with the museum and Market Street to host a mini, three-week film festival. There'll be silver Mylar balloons, Campbell's soup cans, a red carpet and, possibly, people dressed as Edie Sedgwick and Warhol at the opener, “Factory Girl.” I can see how people could manage the film's subject: blonde hair, raccoon eyes and something slinky. But who to play the gaunt, bloodless zombie? I declined, thanks. In this biopic, Guy Pearce, famous mostly for playing a by-the-book cop in “L.A. Confidential,” dusts his face in baby powder and turns up the fey to inhabit the pop artist. Sienna Miller, who you'll remember from the gossip magazines, stars as the gaunt zombie's number one muse, convincingly, if reviews are to be believed, thanks, in large part, to her distinct physical resemblance. Then there's Hayden Christensen, no one's favorite Darth Vader, as an unnamed, but unmistakable Bob Dylan. Love triangle! Next week it's “Basquiat,” followed by “I Shot Andy Warhol.”
