“What Happened To Brittany Murphy?” is streaming on HBO Max. It received positive reception from critics and streamers alike. Awards Season is ongoing until The Oscars air on March 2022. I have a fascination watching documentaries about actors/actresses.
Keep in mind, this review is a short one, because this ain’t a scripted film/series with extensive intel. I’ll list whatever I can. Documentaries speak for themselves when it comes to individuals being interviewed on a particular subject.
Positive & Negative Elements
Positive: The two part documentary features interviews of Brittany’s surviving family members, colleagues and close friends about their professional/personal experiences with her.
Jason Blum served as an executive producer courtesy of his production company Blumhouse Productions.
Footage and photos of Brittany’s life and career is shown. Same with her late widow Simon. As a warning, it’s upsetting. If you have the courage to know more about the tragedy, buckle up.
Kathy Najimy, (Peggy Hill from King Of The Hill) Amy Heckerling (Clueless) Shawn Levy (Night At The Museum Trilogy, Stranger Things, Free Guy) are interviewed.
Various conspiracy theories surrounding Brittany’s cause of death spread across various interviewees.
I forgot to mention on m review of “Girl Interrupted,” Brittany’s role as Daisy is arguably her best. It’s a shame she never made a big hit after “Happy Feet.”
The horrific truth of Simon will shock you. I felt bad for Brittany. She didn’t deserve any awful things. All I can say is, he and Jeffery Epstein made their one way trip to Satan’s shithole.
Negative: I couldn’t spot any issues. I’m giving the documentary an Extra Point for keeping me invested.
The Final Verdict: A, FOR APEX!
What Happened To Brittany Murphy is an interesting yet tragic documentary of an actress gone too soon. Brittany’s autopsy still remains a mystery. It’s difficult to process. If you’re into documentaries about famous people like me, I strongly recommend it. Don’t forget to check out “Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind,” “Sid And Judy” & “Belushi.”
Rest In Peace Brittany Murphy. Your legacy lives on.
