Appealing but none too Revealing look at an Icon. One of the great pioneers of Pre-XXX exploitation cinema, David Friedman, has often said that one of the main keys to his success particularly in regards to his sexploitation films was that he always teased the audience.
Show them just enough to lure them in and give them some of what they wantbut not enough so that were satisfied and didn't have to come back but leave them asking for more.
Certainly, Bettie and the Klaws knew how to tease their audience when they did their photo and film shoots. Unfortunately, the same could be said for this film and it disappoints for that reason. Harron's film is all surface and tease and well done in that regardbut we never learn that much of the person behind the bondage. For a low budget film Harron is quite deft in combining stock footage, set decoration-wardrobe and film stock manipulation to bring the era to life.
The recreations of Bettie 's career are handled with care and attention to detail. Were the same only able to be said about the screenplay which is banal and Judging the acting is more problematic in that Harron has chosen to go along with what seems to be the prevailing technique current filmmakers have when portraying characters of the 's - They seem to smile, grin and leer in a bizarre ritualistic way as if they were the members of a cult who can communicate with one another through their teeth and eyes!
Mol does her best within this construct, even if she's too thin to realistically depict the voluptuous as she was fortunately, Harron was wise enough to find a suitable actress without anachronistic implants. It's not quite correct as many have contended that the film doesn't tell a linear narrative story many have argued that it's just a slice of her life, nothing more.
There IS an arc to the story. What's crucially missing are the thoughts and feelings of Bettie herself. Surely, a girl with such a strict religious background which she returned towould have believed something more strongly about the sexual nature of her work than "Adam and Eve were naked". When the film gets more serious towards the end, both it and Mol's performance are harmed because the audience has gotten used to the winks and the smiles, and haven't been given reason to think any more deeply than that.

In the end, it's like that glossy magazine you see on the newsstand, all bright, shiny and alluring, but you suspect that inside it will be a teasing disappointment. Pity that better care wasn't given to the film stocks used for the release prints.
Hopefully, this will be corrected on DVD. Also, because is such an icon, there's an odd sense that you don't WANT to know the details behind the image even when they are so superficial as here. Of course, recent biographies and a recent L. Times interview with herself have sort of let the cat out of the bag prior to this film.
