Documentary-maker Liz Garbus digs into the archives and presents a new look at Marilyn Monroe. She enlists Glenn Close, Viola Davis and Adrien Brody to read Monroe's letters and diaries.
This may be short on revelation, but the use of interviews and archive material is innovative, as is having a galaxy of stars impart dramatic potency to the writings of Marilyn Monroe and her various collaborators, lovers and distant devotees.
If not quite on the level of Garbus's terrific Bobby Fischer documentary, this still filled with fond recollections of Mazza's life and career. Fans will relish it.
