Candy was intelligent and readings from her journals reveal her inner thoughts which were sometimes very sad because she was an outcast.
Her very good friend, Jeremiah Newton, adds a great deal to the film. Others who share their memories of Candy include Holly Woodlawn, Paul Morrissey, Jayne County, Fran Leibowitz and several others. I only wish that there was more information on the other films she appeared that were not associated with the Andy Warhol Factory. This could have easily been a longer film. It left me wanting more. No mention is made that Candy had a half-brother from her mother's previous marriage who would have nothing to do with Candy.
Candy Darling had a presence and she could have done cabaret like Holly Woodlawn and Jackie Curtis did in after Andy Warhol quit using "transvestites" in his films.
This film is worth every cent! I also have "Superstar in a Housedress" about Jackie Curtis. The two films are ones I highly recommend. Candy Darling is worth remembering and, if you are unfamaliar with her, she is well worth learning about. She is utterly fascinating. Buy this documentary. You won't regret it.
Lou Reed even wrote "Take a Walk On The Wild Side" about Candy and Holly Woodlawn"
It's a very intimate look inside the life of Candy who was worshiped and adored by the avant garde crown in NYC during the late 60's and early 70's up until her untimely death an age 29 in 1974.
Rare interviews, Pictures commentary from the people who knew her best and more. it's quite tragic but at the same time she really 'Lived" and didn't waste a second of what time she did have.
Always conflicted about her body and who and what she was. Also who and what other people would think she was, although she made no attempt to hide the fact that she was indeed a pre op Transsexual,that was her meal ticket,that's what set her apart from all the other beautiful women in New York,she was fabulous and all eyes were on her. She loved and craved the spotlight but at the same time she wanted to have a husband and a family like any other woman.
Most wanted to gawk at her. She was so beautiful and so feminine that people especially men became so infatuated with her but she never knew if they really liked/loved her or the "novelty" that was Candy Darling.
A feeling I knew all too well.
"I will not cease to be myself for foolish people. For foolish people make harsh judgments on me. You must always be yourself, no matter what the price. It is the highest form of morality."

This documentary is a phenomenally thoughtful, nuanced presentation both of the life (and death) of Candy Darling, star in many of Andy Warhol's films, and of the human experience... Read morePublished on January 29, 2014 by Martin H. Goodman
