The documentary, for the most part, was uniquely personal and interesting. I felt Marilyn Monroe herself would have approved of it, because finally her voice comes through and people are not speaking for her (she is speaking for herself). However, I don't think Norman Mailer's excerpts were crucial. In fact, I found his words about her crude and slightly disrespectful. Furthermore, I don't think there needed to be several actresses playing "Marilyn Monroe" and only one actor playing her psychiatrist, or her director, or stage coach. One actress who is capable of playing a convincing Marilyn Monroe could have done the documentary and Monroe herself justice. That said, the documentary was respectful of the famous screen legend and, most importantly, had her voice all over it. Finally, (the real) Marilyn Monroe on Marilyn Monroe.

I managed to catch this when it aired on HBO and it completely changed my view of Marilyn. I've always thought of her as a fabulous icon (the image most people have of her), but never had I imagined that she was so deep and intelligent. I made the same mistake that a lot of people make -I let myself assume there wasn't much more to her than meets the eye. But, after hearing her personal journal entries and random musings, and hearing accounts from people who knew her, I now realize what a disservice I was doing to her memory by not thinking of her as the thoughtful, multi-layered, truly special person that she was.
I haven't bought the DVD yet, but I certainly will now that I've found it on Amazon. I know it's something I'll want to watch over and over again, because I'm sure I'll get something new out of it each time I do. Seeing this documentary has sparked in me a newfound respect and admiration for Marilyn. She is even more beautiful to me now as a person than she ever was as an icon or sex symbol. And that's an opinion that I've come to after seeing "Love, Marilyn" only once on HBO. If you haven't seen it yet, you really need to.

I absolutely loved t he directing, casting, and even musical and other audios used. Everything was perfect. I loved how the characters, especially Marisa Tomei for me, real tried to encompass the persons they were portraying. Even in the silent scenes where the actresses would just depict the anxiety and uneasiness of Monroe, fantastic acting. There were even bits of humor (The Wilder notes with Miller were too funny). I can't wait for the release. I haven't paid this much for a DVD that didn't come with a Blu-ray and digital code in forever but I will definitely swallow my pride on this purchase.

This 2012 HBO documentary is now on DVD from Docurama through Cinedigm. I did not see it on HBO but am glad it is out on DVD, especially for those who remember Marilyn Monroe at the height of her career.

This is probably one of the most unorthodox documentaries I’ve seen and it took a while to get into the director’s method of telling the story. Yes, there are some new, as well as archival, interview segments, but much of the story of Monroe’s life is told by having a cast of about 22 mostly-well-known actors ( Glenn Close, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Jeremy Piven among them) read from both Monroe’s personally diaries and papers (recently discovered) as well as documents from director Billy Wilder, studio head Daryl Zanuck and others. But these actors are never identified on the screen and, though they are listed in the final credit, quite a few were unrecognizable to me. Maybe you are, but the names of Jennifer Ehle, Ben Foster and Elizabeth Banks, are not actors whose names I recognize. (Talk about “name recognition”; we have Lindsey Lohan as one of the “readers” . But, as I said, I soon found myself more interested in the story than who was reading the words.

As you’ll see from the lengthy “End Credits” there are lots of archives who contributed to the film clips used. There are also audio tapes of Monroe which are very revealing. As is stated at the beginning, over 1,000 biographies have been written of this superstar, and at least a half-dozen are interviewed on screen. The film is long – at nearly two-hours – but never sags. And the often-contemporary soundtrack of recordings adds to the enjoyment.
The DVD has no bonus features – Just “Play Movie” and “Chapter Selection” options.

Very interesting seeing actors read her own words and other people who knew her. A great look inside her mind.

Format: DVD
“Love, Marilyn” is a biographical documentary of Marylyn Monroe, most notable for the way in which the subject matter is presented. Along with a wealth of archive footage and interviews, Liz Garbus’ documentary follows the life story of the world’s most famous actress (and criminally underrated talent) with sections of ten actresses reading before the camera the long unpublished personal writings by Marylyn Monroe herself.

So Marylyn Monroe’s writings including her diaries, poems and letters (now published as a book “Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters” by Stanley Buchthal and Bernard Comment) are read by Elizabeth Banks, Ellen Burstyn, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Jennifer Ehle, Lindsay Lohan, Lili Taylor, Uma Thurman, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood.

The film also features other actors and actresses reading the writings by such people as Truman Capote (read by Adrien Brody), George Cukor (Paul Giamatti), Natasha Lytess (Janet McTeer), Norman Mailer (Ben Foster) and Billy Wilder (Oliver Platt). It is quite amusing to see what these talented players can do.

As a bio-pic “Love, Marilyn,” entertaining and informative as it is, does not add much to what we already know about Marylyn Monroe. Just half a century has passed since her untimely death, and much (or too much) has been written about her, but she still remains a mystery. Maybe that should be so. But her personal words are something different, charming, intelligent and sad. And these narrators give voice to those words.
