Bettie Page Reveals All Reviews

Page 1 of 2
May 12, 2015
A shoddily made, amateur-hour barrage of chintzy music, stock footage and flashy video effects that were presumably state of the art during the Reagan administration.
June 27, 2014
Bettie Page Reveals All is an excellent amalgamation of the history of Page and her incredible impact on modeling and fashion, mostly told in her own voice.

Mori hammers home her status as a pop culture icon to a numbing degree, perhaps because parts of Bettie's spotty narration gloss over huge chunks of her life while other portions reduce what might otherwise seem fascinating to one-dimensional levels.

Revealing it is on so many levels. It is also stunning, an exquisite amalgam of vintage film footage and photos from Page's glory days and interviews with Page and friends, family members and experts in the field of voyeurism.

Page's natural beauty, charisma and genuine sense of fun - not to mention her 36-24-37 measurements - come clearly through in Mori's tale.

It seems relatively innocent, but such antics were once shocking.

A spanking good date movie, with the right date, of course.
January 2, 2014
An amateurish and oddly paced documentary, "Bettie Page Reveals All" nonetheless turns out to be revealing, if perhaps not in the way its makers intended.

What makes Mark Mori's film about Page different than those of others is that it captures a side of her persona previously unrevealed.

December 12, 2013
The best thing about this documentary portrait of the beloved 1950s pin-up is its meaty narration, courtesy of Page herself, speaking in the low, slightly gravelly register of an aging Southern belle.

It's useful as a point of reference but lousy as a movie. It would, however, have made a beautiful coffee table book.

The film offers frank, matter-of-fact commentary that is far more illuminating than the talking-head encomiums served up by the likes of Perez Hilton, Dita Von Teese, and Hugh Hefner.

The film's reason for being, though, is the sound of Page's voice -- a worldly, aged Southern drawl -- as she recounts her life story from childhood through retirement.
December 5, 2013
A scintillating, sincere and empathetic portrait of the pinup queen who attained her greatest influence as an icon of female sexuality decades after she retired.

December 5, 2013
Only when it makes the claim for Page as a pivotal figure in American culture does it overstate the case and become tiresome.

December 5, 2013
This documentary portrait of the famous 50s pinup model contends that Page was a progressive figure because she always controlled how her body was objectified. That's such a provocative premise that one wishes the movie explored it in greater depth.
December 5, 2013
Mark Mori's documentary Bettie Page Reveals All whisks us through the model's life, examining the basis for her enormous appeal while delving into the conflicting elements that created her personality.

It reveals too much.

Indeed she does, "reveal all."

December 5, 2013
As a film, Reveals All may be lacking, but as a historical document (of a sort of underground, alternative history), it does exactly what its title promises.
