Report The Eyes of Tammy Faye in Film Posted September 23 Full review: https://1morefilmblog.com/2021/09/22/the-eyes-of-tammy-faye-showalter-2021/ Quote The film opens with Tammy Faye having makeup removed and explaining that she has “permanent” eye-liner and lip liners. She won’t be seen without her trademark “look.” When an onlooker observes, “That’s really you…” she replies “That’s who I am….” This writing isn’t exactly subtle, but it’s fine as far as it goes. The trouble is that it is hard to tell if the film really believes her, or if it is itself blind to the problematic aspects of her protestation. What does is signify that a person most prominently known for her religious faith insists that the surface looks are the “real” her? Again and again, the film beats us over the head with its insistence that Tammy Faye is sincere, but one can be sincere and wrong or sincere and misguided.
