i feel like the Ryan Murphy shows that use real life scenarios, such as this and Crime Story, hold a bit more water than Horror Story; don't get me wrong, i've loved a few seasons of horror story, and i keep watching for the: sets, actors, costumes and effects. Feud is no different.
Sarandon and Lange are doing a pretty good job, although, i do wish Lange looked more like Crawford and Sarandon sounded a bit more like Bette.
BD is an interesting addition, and i also love Mamacita. Judy Davis, amazing as always. the actor that plays Victor Buono is bang on.
Feud has done a pretty good job at highlighting a lot of the quirks of these two actresses, as well as old hollywood being on its last legs.
i've been a Bette Davis fan for years, and Feud was instantly one of my favourite books.
neither the Crawford or Davis estate weighed in on this show being made, and nobody from the OJ story contributed to Crime Story either. however, both stories, though with told with a Murphy slant, seem to be well done (especially at bringing everything to life aesthetically -- without a doubt -- the writing, at times ... eh).
The last episode, where both Davis & Crawford are having a drink, swapping war stories, felt like they were both reading from their respective wikipedia articles tbh.
mostly, i'm glad that these stories are being told, in whatever fashion, because they highlight spectacular moments in pop culture; the awe of the trial and the cultural implications; the way that women are represented and how that effects the mode of today -- at the very start of the womens lib movement. i do wonder what's next
