"Charleston Everybody!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This movie is fantastic. Kirsten Dunst is fabulous as Marion and the whole thing is a wonderful insight into the Art Deco period. The costumes, dance and soundtrack are perfect and the whole thing is seamlessly directed. Two thumbs up!

Description

Kirsten Dunst, Edward Herrman, Eddie Izzard, Cary Elwes, Joanna Lumley, Jennifer Tilly, Claudia Harrison, Ronan Vibert and Victor Slezak star in this 1920s scandal revisited, involving people like media mogul Randolph Hearst and Charlie Chaplin feuding over the delectable actress Marion Davies during a weekend aboard the Hearst luxury yacht. Juicy by any standards, this tale of sex, celebrity, money and motives is irresistibly decadent and cinematically delicious.

Review

"A Hollywood scandal springs to life in Peter Bogdanovich's lively Cat's Meow. In 1924 the immensely powerful publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst held a yacht party that ended with a gunshot. Between Hearst's influence and that of his glitterati guests (including Louella Parsons and Charlie Chaplin), no satisfying account of what happened ever made it to the public. The Cat's Meow reconstructs one of the more whispered-about possible scenarios and has quite a bit of fun doing so. Cast and crew alike skewer 1920s Hollywood decadence and, by extension, today's. Eddie Izzard is a boldly odd casting choice as Chaplin, but he succeeds, refusing to fall back on Little Tramp mannerisms. There are several other good performances, but best of all is the cool-as-sherbet Joanna Lumley as the deliciously jaded Elinor Glyn. The script is a strong one, never stooping to the excesses of its characters--Bogdanovich's take is far from the most lurid allegations of what happened that weekend." --Ali Davis
