Very good....just not perfect.
27 December 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Jodie Foster narrates this biography of Bette Davis. And, like most biographies of this type, it focuses mostly on her films and far less on her personal life. But, this is not to say her personal problems are glossed over--they just aren't explored in the detail some might wish to hear (such things are her disinheriting her daughter was omitted). Additionally, while there are tons of film clips (which makes sense since it was made by Turner Entertainment--the same folks who own the rights to most of Davis' films), it is NOT an exhaustive study. Many of her movies (and some very good ones) are not mentioned. My feeling is that for a casual film viewer, this is an excellent film and is well worth seeing. But, for insane film nuts like me, it is just too brief and doesn't give a complete enough picture of this amazing actress.
