[5.25/10] Shirley (2020)

Shirley (2020)

Quick Review: Elisabeth Moss yet again dominates the screen as the feisty, if fragile horror writer, stealing every scene with her emotional turn, but that, and some spot-on period production design aside, "Shirley" is a murky, moody, and monotonous biopic with exiguous dramatic impact and even lower entertainment value, whose twisted nature, surreal tone, and haunting fairy tale feel make its relationship-driven story about egos and manipulation too muddled and odd to get compelled by.
