Bette Davis

Duration: 10:03

DIRECTED by Nagwa Rahman
‘Bette Davis’ presents the surreal , sardonic last moments of the late actress as she reflects on her life in a delusional , bed ridden state. In this unsentimental depiction of Miss. Davis perhaps the archetypal golden age Hollywood actress , her invincibility and icon hood is punctured as she clings on to her past glories in a nightmare interview conducted from hell which is sparked by her deeper moral sub-consciousness. Always her own worst critic Miss. Davis in her dreamt up interview exploits herself and her celebrity while she is at her weakest.
