I watched the Pamela Anderson documentary. Pamela is a foundational figure for me, the height of her fame and power coincided with some of my most formative years and I remember every boy in my class being obsessed with her growing up. I was too but for different reasons. For someone living a very small, closeted, scared existence she always represented beauty, sex, freedom. I would see her out and about with Tommy and I would think "she's so wild, she just does whatever she wants" and that felt very freeing and aspirational. All that is to say, I was always invested in her career and still am so this documentary was inherently interesting to me. It was fun reliving the glory days of the 90s (Baywatch was on every afternoon after school in my country) and it was definitely fascinating to hear her perspective about everything that happened and how she feels about Tommy, her career and everything. I will say, I do think she deserved more. I don't think she would have won an Oscar or anything but she has self awareness and comic timing and I don't think she's a worse actress than say, Jen Aniston so if her image wasn't so oversexualized and turned into a caricature she could have had a decent career leading a nice sitcom instead of floundering for the best part of the last 20 years. It's clear she's not a victim and she doesn't see herself as one though and she has had a fascinating life and lived her youth to the fullest so she is understandably pretty content.
All in all, it was a satisfying watch for a trip down memory lane and for people to see Pam is actually thoughtful and smart. I agree with someone in another thread who said that it had some parallels with the Britney doc in that her image and even her body was taken from her and used as a commodity without her having a say in it. I would recommend it for Pamela Anderson fans and fans of celebrity and the 90s as no one was quite as white hot back then as Pamela was but she seems to have come out the other end of it pretty ok.
