Taking sides: Chelsea Girls (the movie) vs. Chelsea Walls Chelsea Girl (the LP)
I guess Chelsea Girls showcases the personalities and habits of its title subjects enough to be very interesting (often very sad I found). . . .

The more I learn about the Factory set, the more it feels like an East Coast counterpart to the Manson Family. But I still can't find Chelsea Girls that exploitative. I remember struggling to stay awake while it ran (except for the sequence where Ondine goes off on whoever that was who called him a phony).

this book gives a really good first-hand account of the factory scene. people love to portray Warhol as this master svengali but it seems a lot more collaborative than all that (well, understanding that this book was written by him)
no idea what you mean by "counterpart to the Manson Family". one was an isolated drug murder cult in the desert the other an urban art scene with legit writers, artists, actors, drag queens, promoters, etc. creating venues, films, reords, etc.

if you meet it on its own terms, TCG is kind of a perfect film.
Roger Ebert hated it, but he was kind of a dope.
