The Eyes of Tammy Faye

The Eyes of Tammy Faye

From the 1960's to the 1980's, evangelist Jim Baker and his ambitious wife, Tammy Faye, rose from humble beginnings to to build an empire based on big-time evangelical Christianity--only for the couple to fall from grace because of some all-too-human sins.

    The only strength of the movie is Jessica Chastain's acting
    Biographies always face the risk of getting bored. Tommy Fey's Eyes is also two hours and several minutes of biography.

    Although it seems from the name of the movie that we are supposed to get to know Tammy Fay, but the reality is that we don't get close to her. Tami is someone whose simultaneous interest in religion, make-up and self-expression makes her a good choice to perform on television. However, we don't know what exactly she wants, what she thinks, except for showing off.

    Tommy Fey's Eyes movie can't meet the expectations of this subgenre and pull itself out from under the shadow of its source of inspiration. The only thing that makes the audience a little happy is the sincere atmosphere and simple tone of the work, which presents itself to the viewer without pompousness and ambition, And as I said in the title; The only strength of the movie is Jessica Chastain's acting.

    This movie does not show them like they really were.

    They were not victems like this movie portrays and like her book Tammy:Telling it My Way, the real victems were tghose poor misguided viewers who believed their Con and sent in their hard earned mony.

    Tammy Faye was just as much a huckster and con artist/scammer as Jim.

    They lived extravagantly while their viewers went without believeing they would be financially blessed, FAT CHANCE!

    Jim Bakker is back on TV being the huckster/scammer/con man he is.

    I used to watch their show back in the day, after some time I became suspicious. Luckily I didn't buy in to their con and send them any money.

    Incredible acting
    Both of the leads are absolutely fantastic in this movie and the story itself was portrayed well and kept you interested. Didn't love all the writing , felt like it was too long in parts and that the production quality wasn't great for such a crazy story with a great cast .

    Some really powerful scenes and lines - didn't love the way they ended it .

    Worth the watch but would not recommend it to everyone.

    Jessica Chastain is amazing as Tammy Faye . She is the whole reason I kept watching the movie. The story is interesting and eye opening and also a little sad. Makes you look at religious fanaticism differently.
