Monroe's writing is beautifully succinct, but the cast deliver it with such mannered intensity that it comes across like the worst of Monroe's performances ...
This intelligent, sensitive doc gets a bit pretentious as today's stars read Monroe's words.
Remove the comma from the title and Love, Marilyn plays like the command it is.
Do any fresh revelations or insights remain, a half century past Monroe's overdose death at age 36?
A heartfelt and well-intentioned love letter to an already deeply beloved star, and for anyone who's still not convinced, the picture works hard to make the case for Monroe's gifts as an actress.
Monroe's vulnerability and sense of inadequacy, her frustration and solitude, come through poignantly.
This is a beautiful, creative and artful documentary that doubles as a tribute to one of cinema's everlasting bombshells and overcomes its narrative holes by being sincere and well made.
Given the number of Marilyn memorials already out there, this is just another pleasant, un-revelatory way to say goodbye Norma Jean.
If not quite on the level of Garbus's terrific Bobby Fischer documentary, this is still filled with fond recollections of Mazza's life and career. Fans will relish it.
It doesn't provide blinding new insight into Monroe's life but it is filled with less familiar newsreel footage and decent movie clips and has some brief, invaluable glimpses of a troubled inner life.
Garbus is able to re-stitch Monroe's life in a most compelling and original manner.
By the end of the film, we learn just about everything about Monroe was self-created, which somehow makes the eventual self-destruction a little more understandable, and her life story a cautionary meditation on the booby-traps of celebrity.
While it's interesting after a fashion to hear these actors read her journals and try to make them come alive, sometimes too empathetically, it becomes repetitive after a while. What could have added an extra needed dimension to this since they gathered such an amazing array of talent is to have these respected thespians, well except for Lohan, tell what value they found in Marilyn's work and what she meant to them.
