The Eyes of Tammy Faye Review


One of America's true oddities, Tammy Faye Bakker has been maligned for well over a decade now, and it's unfortunate (or not, I guess) that this erstwhile loving documentary of her life won't change the public's conception of her very much. While the picture is basically a dutiful retelling of her rise, fall, and semi-rise again, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato go to such lengths to hokify the film (by having RuPaul narrate and using Babe-esque sock puppets to read the inter-scene title cards) that you can't help but feel poor Tammy is being laughed at. Still, her history is a tragic and eye-opening one, and it's a story that you'll absolutely watch until the end -- even if that end is something of a letdown.
