If you’ve seen the madcap first trailer for The Eyes of Tammy Faye, you might expect it to be an unconventional, satirical biopic in the vein of The Wolf of Wall Street or The People Vs. Larry Flynt. That’s not the film you get, though. The Eyes of Tammy Faye (based on the 2001 documentary of the same name) is actually a rather straightforward film, perfectly competent in the areas of direction, screenplay, lensing, and staging. What saves the film from being a somewhat pedestrian experience is the performance by the actor in the title role.
