Former televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker Messner battles lung cancer in this absorbing TV documentary by Chris McKim, a sequel to Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato's cult favorite The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2000). Chemotherapy has ravaged her fabled eyelashes, but her folksy candor and idiosyncratic fashion sense endure; a magnetic presence, she's gracious and warm—“No pity parties,” she insists—even when struggling to sing or cleaning up after her dogs. By the end of the video her cancer is in remission, though it has since returned. 65 min.
