Critic reviews for Mommie Dearest
This was, absolutely, the best episode of Feud so far with some wrenching scenes and a quietly devastating final ten minutes or so. I think I'm a fan of Feud now.
And now here we are at the third episode, in which the portrayals of each women deepen and become more nuanced, even as the show gleefully embraces high camp and humor.
Sunday's FEUD: Bette and Joan made it clear once again that Davis and Crawford also could have been pals - and, in fact, could have really used one another's support, especially in dealing with their children.
On this week's Feud, the battle isn't just between Bette and Joan. It's between mothers and daughters more generally-with a special emphasis on daughters who have become mothers, but are still very much in need of parenting themselves.
Bette putting out her ashes on Joan's Pepsi machine as the wrap on Whatever Happened to Baby Jane's wrap day is hilarious in concept but much more understated in execution.
