Other Movies Seen By This Director (0)
|06.16.07||Netflix|| Thanks to Jarrette for letting me know this movie existed. It's Bob Fosse's last movie and it's about Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten's life and death. Eric Roberts stars and actually acts and pulls it off pretty well (granted he's playing a psychotic pimp). Cliff Robertson is also good as Hugh Hefner.|
I liked this more than the average biopic, probably because Fosse's so loose with his timeline, constantly cutting back and forth between the main story, interviews after Stratten's death, and the crazed-out moments in the apartment as its happening. Seen this way, even though I know where it's heading, I'm never quite sure what I'll see next. I also like it just because the story's so tragic and borders Hollywood.
