Memorable Songs, Sad Story

The first part of this film, led by a manic Bette Midler, plays like "Toddlers & Tiaras" for the Great Depression era. Mama Rose (Midler) spends so much time immersing her daughters in showbiz and sick infantilism, insisting on making them wear little girl's clothes well into puberty, that she forgets what is best for her girls altogether.

A movie star is someone who not matter what, is always a movie star. And in the grand tradition of all-around entertainers, Bette Midler is a movie star. She has crafted a brazen, larger-than-life and gaudy showgirl persona through her stage, screen and television appearances. She is a grand dame presiding over us, frequently prone to fits of hyperbolic and bombastic emotions, yet never afraid to ... read more

Gypsy

“A movie star is someone who not matter what, is always a movie star. And in the grand tradition of all-around entertainers, Bette Midler is a movie star. She has crafted a brazen, larger-than-life and gaudy showgirl persona through her stage, screen and television appearances. She is a grand dame presiding over us, frequently prone to fits of hyperbolic and bombastic emotions, yet never afraid to let a touch of messy spillover from her actual self boil over from time to time in her work.

Sometimes it’s hard finding the right type of role for a star to truly shine in, especially one with so idiosyncratic, specific and well-developed a personality as the Divine Miss M. But Gypsy allows for her to take that bawdy character and funnel it into a character type that can handle it. I” read more

Memorable Songs, Sad Story

“The first part of this film, led by a manic Bette Midler, plays like "Toddlers & Tiaras" for the Great Depression era. Mama Rose (Midler) spends so much time immersing her daughters in showbiz and sick infantilism, insisting on making them wear little girl's clothes well into puberty, that she forgets what is best for her girls altogether.

Though not as dark a musical as Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd" or Lars Von Trier's "Dancer in the Dark,," "Gypsy" permeates a diseased kind of wistfulness, marked by broken dreams and shattered egos. Meanwhile Bette Midler plays Mama Rose as if it was her last performance on earth, but backed up by the stagy sets and old-timey attitude, her performance is actually a strength, not a deterrent.
