I wanna write a manifesto
I don’t agree with many of the real Valerie ‘s political opinions, but this movie just does such a good job creating a connection to a controversial/problematic figure. Like I would be vehemently against Valerie’s crusade in real life, but I feel such a love for the picture of her created by this film.
Also based on the snippets of Up Your Ass we receive in the film it’s a damn shame it wasn’t John Waters who got the script, instead of Warhol, he could have done something great with it
(Against her politics because of the trans exclusion and focus on chromosomes as the most important basis of classification if that needed clearing up 🤷🏼♂️)
