“You Must Always Be Yourself …

Picture 5

… no matter what the price. It is the highest form of morality.” – Candy Darling

The life of Candy Darling is inspiring – and is very well presented in the documentary “Beautiful Darling,” written and edited by James Rasin. Chloë Sevigny reads from Darling’s private diaries and letters. And there is lots of documentary footage that I’ve never seen before, including scenes inside the Chelsea Hotel with Darling performing monologues for Dennis Hopper and company. Author Fran Lebowitz provides some remarkably dyspeptic commentary.

The root of beauty is boldness.

(Here’s the documentary’s website and the New York Times review of the film.)
