I am absolutely head over heels for this new gemstone from FX. I was but a child in the early eighties, but these two actresses, Betty Davis and Joan Crawford, were still very much in the spotlight; mainly because of the LGBT community back then.
Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon are absolutely, brilliant, in their performances/portrayals of these two legendary actresses.
One can not go on watching this fabulous show and not give credit to the entire cast. Their performances and obvious reverence for the material is impressive. But I have to give a shout out to one character and the actress who plays her, that is Mamacita- played by the talented Jackie Hoffman. Ms. Hoffman is so elegantly callous and yet so soft and sweet like a teddy bear. Ms. Hoffman’s use of her facial movements and those eyes to expresses the character through ,is tremendously brilliant.
I hope you take the opportunity to check out the show.
