Movie Info

Betty changed the landscape for female artists in America. She "was the first," as Miles Davis said. From an early age, Betty freed herself from social rules traditionally imposed on women and insisted on complete control of her image and recordings, and in the case of her turbulent marriage to Miles Davis, her personal life as well. At the height of her fame in the early 1980s, she mysteriously disappeared from public life. In late 2012, after intensive research, the filmmakers discovered Betty Davis living quietly alone in Pittsburgh. After several months of conversation, she entrusted the filmmakers with telling her story.

  • The film is a cinematic interpretation of Davis' life, emulating her subversive style by blending testimony with psychedelic animation and an assortment of unconventional nonfiction techniques.

  • There's enough material to get a taste of her fiery shows, uninhibited lyricism, and arresting fashion sense - silver-sequin hot pants above all - but not enough to fill out the standard running time.

    January 16, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Overall, Betty - They Say I'm Different just falls flat. It's confusing and slow despite its length. I loved learning about Betty, but I don't think Betty - They Say I'm Different is going to impress or maintain the attention of the casual viewer.

    January 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Betty, however, reveals and the genius of the woman who was a songwriter, bandleader, fashionista, and singer - a funk renaissance artist.

    November 13, 2018 | Rating: 7.9/10 | Full Review…
  • Betty is crucial to any fan who desires a deeper understanding of this pioneering female funk auteur.
