  • Pictures often speak louder than words, and filmmaker Susan Lacy does a masterful job of summing up this amazing female icon with her documentary, Jane Fonda in Five Acts.

  • Her mug shot may be used as the central marketing hook, but there was so much more to Fonda than just "Hanoi Jane" and I liked that Five Acts gave equal weight to all of her work both on and off screen.

  • She's a legend, sure. But now she's not Henry's daughter, or Roger/Tom/Ted's wife, or Bree Daniels. She's just Jane, the doc suggests, plain old Jane. It only took decades to get there.

    December 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Fonda is so solid throughout the documentary that an enthusiastic reference to a prophetic psychic reading sticks out as a flighty departure.

  • Modern documentaries have led us to expect more rigour in their storytelling but this, despite its willingness to touch on family discord and so on, keeps a respectful distance that ultimately frustrates.

  • At age 80, Jane Fonda is still going strong. Here's to act number six!
