Biography Movies of 2022
2022 Oscar Biography Movies
An overview of this year’s six biography movies. I especially liked Tick, tick…Boom, Being the Ricardos, and Spencer (the others, not so much!)
Being the Ricardos
(4 Stars) A wonderful synthesis of the pair – not a documentary!
(3.5 *) Another good take on family. Terrific setup in the first 10 minutes.
FLEE (4*) A very unique story told in an unusual way.
House of Gucci
(2*) House of Gucci is an overly long mess that fails to establish a consistent tone.
(3 *) A fun movie until you understand that it isn’t completely truthful.
(4*) Spencer is not your typical biopic, but Stewart’s outstanding performance makes this a must-see film
The Eyes of Tammy Faye
(3.5 Stars) Great acting from Chastain, and overwhelming makeup, but kind of a mess of a movie.
(4 stars) A little difficult to follow but a great story and some terrific music.
