nc_jj -> 12A? Man, this film should be rated X! (11/4/2008 1:21:37 AM)

This film is really fucking extreme. Altough is Davis' best performance to date along with All About Eve. Great Movie. A really dark psycho drama. Also Joan Crawford is extremely good. Sexy and captivating. Really fucking great.

blaud -> Dramatic, Bleak Thriller (21/12/2011 5:40:52 AM)

Whatever Happened To Baby Jane, a dark, uncompromising thriller is a well realized attempt to conquer the nature of fame through the nasty peephole of mental disturbance. There is the characterisation and performances, which are both superb. Bette Davis has never been better, and the story is woefully dark and suitably foreboding. The taut and sometimes chillingly tense atmosphere produced by the two leads is oftentimes electrifying, and the use of music is most commendable. The film does feel rather padded in certain sections, and sometimes feels like it's going nowhere fast. The bizarre and rather open ending certainly doesn't help this cause either. However, revelling in the languishes of the story is the key here, as it is both tense enough to keep your attention, and whimsical enough to keep you on edge. Enjoy the film for what it is, but don't try to look any deeper; there ain't a whole lot there.
