motionpicturesatarevolution asked: what'd you think of Mrs. Parker and the Viscious Circle? I like Dorothy Parker a lot.
Actually, I didn’t care for it because it made the cardinal mistake of an artist biopic, which is a failure to communicate the artist’s particular appeal. In short, I love Dorothy Parker’s wit and writing, but that intelligence and humor wasn’t conveyed via the script or performances. So, no, I was disappointed in the film precisely because I DO love Dorothy Parker.
