    A true-life movie so good, so well-written and yet sleazy enough to satisfy even the cheesiest viewers among us.

    Bruckner takes on the role with gusto, and she and Harron together create someone whose unthinking commitment to the pursuit of “F-U-N” (in Anna’s phrasing) achieves something close to sublimity.

    The end result isn’t a very good biopic and certainly not a noble one.

    It’s a bleak and predictable story, not just because of where it took Anna Nicole, but because of where it took those around her.

    Anna Nicole has an extraordinarily hazy point of view, tonally sympathetic to Smith but unwilling to explore any of the details, sloppy but particularizing, that might mitigate and humanize her increasingly terrible behavior.

    There's virtually no intelligent or convincing exploration of character in the film, beyond the shopworn theory that she craved fame to validate herself, but traded whatever "self" she had to get it.

    It’s storytelling at its most shallow and unsatisfying.
