Very good....just not perfect.

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.
