Having finally seen this on DVD, I have to say enjoyed it quite a bit. Excellent performances, particularly from Kirsten Dunst as Marion Davies. As a portrayal of the corrupting influence of power, it's right in line with Welles. Edward Herrmann is good as the pathetic, bullying creep that is W.R. Hearst, a man who pulls all the strings yet deeply fears losing any control. Eddie Izzard does well as Charlie Chaplin, despite the lack of resemblance. And of course, there is Jennifer Tilly as the seemingly clownish Louella Parsons, who blackmails the "Chief" into giving her a lifetime contract for her silence. I was glad to see small details, like Marion Davies' stutter, were included. Overall, a nice return for PB, and well worth checking out. The DVD has a commentary from Bogdanovich.
