IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Great and Thorough and Heartbreaking
27 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A story of longing that so many have had to be famous, to be a star, to be in movies. This story is particularly heartbreaking and shocking. It is shocking in the sensitivity it shows to it's subject matter. It does not attempt to simply lure us with soft porn images and tell us about some supposed depth of decadence and immorality as these things often do. It treats it's subject matter and the their context with depth and sensitivity. Great pains are taken by the filmmakers to put the people and images into the culture of the time. It presents not only a compelling history of Betty Page but also the struggle of free speech and sexual expression and its suppression by government forces. Obviously painstakingly researched. This documentary also has something very rare for documentaries- a surprise ending.
