Lady Boss: The Jackie Collins Story (2021)

Laura Fairrie directs Jackie Collins, Joan Collins and Morton L Janklow in this biographical documentary about the bestselling trash romance novelist.

A typical example of the modern documentary form. Does Jackie Collins deserve such an easy ride? Her books aren’t exactly going to stand the test of time and the nepotism and privilege she benefited from probably deserves a fair few more moments of serious interrogation than these 90 minutes can find room for… Even the full fat raunch of her novels is given slightly short shrift.
