Movie Info

Based on the recent book, Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters, edited by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, October 2010, Fragments: Marilyn Monroe, explores the unknown side of Monroe "a deeply curious artist, a savvy businessperson" and challenges the long-held misperception of Marilyn as the dumb blonde archetype. Alongside interviews with experts and former acquaintances, A-list actors read from Marilyn's own writings, bringing her words to a contemporary audience for the first time. (c) Moxie … More

Critic Reviews for Love, Marilyn

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (8)

This intelligent, sensitive doc gets a bit pretentious as today's stars read Monroe's words.

Time Out
Top Critic

Remove the comma from the title and Love, Marilyn plays like the command it is.

Top Critic

Do any fresh revelations or insights remain, a half century past Monroe's overdose death at age 36?

Toronto Star
Top Critic

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.

It was a mistake to ask anyone to dramatically read a chicken recipe Monroe prepared for Joe DiMaggio (one of her husbands), or some of the other scribbles included here.

Given the number of Marilyn memorials already out there, this is just another pleasant, un-revelatory way to say goodbye Norma Jean.

Total Film

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 ...

Guardian

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.

Empire Magazine

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.

The List

Garbus is able to re-stitch Monroe's life in a most compelling and original manner.

Montreal Gazette

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.

The monologues are like exercises from the star's beloved Actors Studio, performances of emotional facets. For the most part these are effectively stark, tender, childlike and raw.

Full Review… | April 5, 2013
National Post

Garbus' use of Monroe's own words are plenty wrenching at times but they don't add much to our collective understanding of either the enduring myth or the truth about the damaged woman who existed behind that sexpot fašade.

The Grid

Say and film what you like about her, even in this somewhat wrongheaded if worshipful film portrait, Marilyn Monroe still triumphs just by being herself.

Audience Reviews for Love, Marilyn

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.
