Notorious Bettie Page

I took a break this evening to go see The Notorious Bettie Page and it was okay. It wasn't a great movie. To be honest it was sort of bland.

There seemed to be virtually no drama in Bettie Page's life that was worth dramatizing. And it seemed as though Mary "American Psycho" Harron was actually pulling punches.

I don't know.

I left just not feeling satisfied.

I mean, maybe I'm just not enjoying it on the right level. It was nice to see all of Bettie Page's famous poses recreated by Gretchen Mol. She has an exquisite form. It just left something to be desired. The movie, I mean. Not Gretchen Mol. She was great.
