“The Citizen Kane of the drug generation.” – The Village Voice
“Originally a chronicle of Edie Sedgwick’s days at Andy Warhol’s Factory, Ciao! Manhattan has become one of the most insightful looks at New York’s “Silver Sixties” period and the horrible fallout that followed. Ostensibly a documentary, this film is more like a scripted drama in which all the actors play themselves. Shocking, entertaining and moving, it’s a seminal piece of 1960s cinema.” -TV Guide
