‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’ Production Designer Embraced Decadence to Build Tammy Faye’s World

Production designer Laura Fox, who transformed the Four Seasons Maui into an uneasy pineapple-bedecked paradise for HBO’s “The White Lotus” faced some similar challenges when creating the world of Tammy Faye Bakker for “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.” Neither director Michael Showalter, nor producer-actress Jessica Chastain, who plays the title character, wanted to make fun […]

The Eyes Of Tammy Faye Review: Jessica Chastain Shines In An Otherwise Muddled Movie [TIFF 2021]

"The Eyes of Tammy Faye" is an insecure movie. What does this film want to be? A wacky comedy? A biting satire? A drama with occasional bursts of humor? I suppose you could argue it could be all those things, and more – and I'd agree. But there would need to be some cohesive element tying all of that together. Unfortunately, director Michael Showalter never finds that and instead relies on clumsy, on-the-nose humor with occasional bursts of earnestness. It's clear that the movie thinks it's symp...

‘Eyes of Tammy Faye’ filmmakers discuss greed, corruption and sympathy for a bedeviled icon

When Jessica Chastain saw the 2000 documentary, “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” the actress knew she wanted to make a feature film that would give her the chance to play Tammy Faye Bakker.  Bakker, who died in 2007, was the distinctively made-up Christian TV host who, with her husband Jim, became televangelist TV stars. The pair raked in millions before suffering a public fall from grace in the 1980s that involved prescription drug abuse, sex scandals and financial fraud that ultimately sent Jim Ba...
