News & Interviews for Feud: Bette and Joan
Full of joy, humor, brilliant writing and performances, and a deep unabiding love for what really makes Hollywood great - the women.
For campy confirmation that the Oscars are taken too seriously, look to FX's wonderfully over-the-top Feud: Bette and Joan.
Visually, the show is a masterpiece re-creation of 1960s Hollywood - while the retro Saul Bass-style main title sequence is a marvel to behold... And then there's the buoyant script, packed with quotable dialogue and perfected by snarky delivery.
There's an 'event' quality to this show that makes it incredibly watchable. However, if anyone knew the difference between watchable and truly memorable, it was Bette & Joan.
Feud: Bette and Joan is a TV show built on pure gossipy indulgence; one that's inclined to believe the most juicy stories about its characters, but not in a bad way.
Its deft and satisfying first few episodes should please both the voyeurs and the feminists, and more importantly highlight how the two groups can overlap.
The series is tremendously consistent in all its episodes, perhaps weakening somewhat in its little inspired closure. [Full Review in Spanish]
Both Lange and Sarandon are terrific in their portrayals, never turning Crawford and Davis into caricatures or impersonations.
This is a show that will utilize its setting to tell a poignant and relevant story about women assuming agency.
Feud: Bette and Joan was a beautiful lie. A lie told in service to the art, a lie told to secure the legends for another generation, a lie told to placate the audience, and ultimately, a lie told by the auteur to the auteur.
In an age when most feuds are fought in 140 characters, there's something irresistible about seeing two larger-than-life characters duking it out the old-fashioned way, face-to-face.
Audience Reviews for Feud: Bette and Joan
Apr 02, 2021It's pretty much bad
Nov 22, 2020A masterful interpretation that hits the mark I can say that this wonderful series: Feud, is amazing, it's a mixture of ugly rumors and infamous manipulations, a look at the dark undersides of celebrity culture and the depression that follows the update. spotlight deviation. The great strength of this series is also due to the masterful interpretation of their two stars that is Jessica Lange (Joan Crawford) and Susan Sarandon Bette Davis), they are both formidable and we discover a Hollywood universe that many did not suspect, and yes the star-mania of those times was very real and is particularly well represented in this series. I will never hide that one of the strong points of each series or film, is a successful part, when one finds genius in the interpretation of the role (s), of course the script and the realization must not be lacking, but without good performers a good series can easily get lost on the way. Anyway, here everything was present and that makes and will make a great biographical, dramatic series, to be discovered especially for its wonderful interpretation.
May 20, 2019I knew this would be genius because I love everything Ryan Murphy writes ! And I'm also a fan of Jessica Lang, & those two together create magic !! Lange takes the defining role of her amazing career here and Joan Crawford! She makes us love and root for her all while hating her lol she did what mommy dearest did not. She made Joan Crawford human again! She's not just a sassy bitch with sharp edged one liners. No. We get to see all the terrible pain & trauma that made her that way and in an instant you want to see her finally win just once in life! Brava Lange ! Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis is just as delicious to watch and those two together are fun but Lange steals the show hands down! She's a Drama Goddess the way she brings these characters to life! & don't sleep on mamacita! She's a joy too and definitely should have gotten an Emmy as Lange/Crawford's left & right hand woman ! Her just as sassy & sharp tongued housekeeper/assistant. Murphy surprisingly developed her role into a character with much more depth than just a housekeeper. She is essential to Crawford's life. Watch this kasterpie
Nov 19, 2018Feud Bette and Joan, is an absolute jewel. I loved this series, so intriguing, so visually stunning. It takes you back to the true golden ages of Hollywood. The story of these women is so fascinating and interesting. The acting is beyond amazing, especially the performances by Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon. Furthermore, because of the fabulous acted personalities by Lange and Sarandon, I grew sympathy towards Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, even when they were messing with each other. I give this series a definite recommend and 5/5 stars. I cannot wait for the next season.
Dec 27, 2017Terrible for women! A sorry imitation of the reality that may have gone before. It makes the women seem wholly primitive and dumb - somewhere between spoilt babies and cattle - obsessed with petty fights and their image, while the men look after everything. This show thinks it is so clever, bringing up hot topics and utilising significant screen talent, but both are in reality banal. There is nothing here, just a bad representation of female talent and women.
Dec 23, 2017I watched this entire season in one day and can see why it has so many nominations. The examination of the hollywood industry and deconstruction of studios, gossip columnists, executives and stars seems rather topical given current headlines. It also highlights how misogyny, sexual discrimination, gender politics and the exploitation and manipulation of people to increase the bottom line despite the personal consequences is just as relevant today as it was back then. The finale is heartwrenching and even days after I have seen the series many of the moments within the series still linger with me.
Dec 16, 2017Puntaje Original: 7.0 Brillantes actuaciones del reparto en general, en especial por Susan Sarandon (y no quiero provocar enemistades). Con una mirada profunda e introspectiva a las ambiciones y sueños humanos, Feud puede resultar tanto inspirador, divertido, intrigante y reflexivo para las audiencias.
Oct 22, 2017Terrific season, great performances from Lange and Sarandon. I hope season two features another great combo

Jul 24, 2017A very believable portrayal of Old Hollywood. Although neither Sarandon nor Lange will every be able to compare to the real Davis and Crawford, they are as good as it gets, giving these performances their all. This 8-episode show definitely brings a certain charm that the modern industry just doesn't do anymore.
