Don't bother...
F. Bandita | 10/03/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"

this doc. sucks. don't even waste your money. It barely gets one star...and I guess that would be for some old archival footage and to honor Frida's unsinkable beauty. The same photos are used over and over, with cheesy voice over narration. I was left completely unsatiated. if you're looking for a good Frida documentary, try PBS' The Life and Times of..."
Kahlo Biography DVD
M. Brooks | Sacramento, California | 07/03/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very comprehensive video biography of Kahlo's life. Her story is told using vintage still photographs and priceless B/W home movie clips. Also included are on camera interviews with those who knew her best; family members and former students, and those who have written books about her; Hayden Herrera, Martha Zamora and Raquel Tibol. If you're looking for an in-depth discussion of her art you won't find it in this documentary...very little is said about her paintings. If you're unfamiliar with Frida Kahlo, this is a good "Introduction to Frida Kahlo 101". On a scale of 1-to-10 I would rate this documentary a 6.

Fruit Salad presentation

"This is the worst of all the biographies of Frida and maybe the worst biography of the series. The start out in the middle of the story and go back and for the is no coherence. Mulch of this was lifted from an excellent Mexican production {Frida Kahlo - La Cinta que Envuelve una Bomba (The Ribbon That Ties the Bomb) ~ Jesus Muñoz Delgado (DVD - 1992).} They do not really introduce Hayden Herrera.

There is a different spin on a few facets of Frida's life which still is worth watching if true or not. However if you are going to miss anything this documentary would be it.
