Another commenter wrote saying this movie was "garbage" and painted Anton as a "sex fiend" - I really disagree. The only reference I saw about that was a mention of the young Anton and friends discovering porn (maybe it was only nudes - can't remember) on the internet. Anyway, what really impressed me was how amazing (and courageous!) Anton's parents were and how incredibly driven Anton was! I always enjoyed his work as an actor and this movie sheds light on what kind of young man he was. I also had no idea Anton had Cystic Fibrosis. His death is all the more tragic with the new CF drug there is now on the market that can dramatically lengthen the lives (and improve quality of life) of most CF sufferers. Highly recommend this lovely movie about the life and work of Anton. My heart goes out to him, his friends and especially his parents.
I have watched Anton Yelchin for years and though I didn't always know his name, I new his face, voice and his curly locks. I think his first movie was Hearts in Atlantis or Saving Milo, but I remember him best in the series Huff. He made lots of movies, but it wasn't until I found out he had died that I looked them all up and watched all of them. What an actor. So I was very happy/sad to see this documentary about his short life. He was truly unique, creative, brilliant and happy....and a very good son to wonderful parents. If you don't know who he is, I recommend this to you. Antosha will be missed in the movie industry.....he makes this cliche so true.......only the good die young.

Anton is deeply missed by a lot of people & it shows here. This is one of the finest documentary films I've ever seen. And in a way, Anton made it himself. I was always a fan but I discovered him in a new light here. It hurts all over again like the day he died seeing what was & what was to come. This film is worth every penny to see it!
The human race has been cheated! the day we lost this brilliant actor... "june 19th 2016" I had always liked Anton's movies after seeing him in alpha dog, charlie bartlett and there was fright night, those were the first i saw. I wasnt into star trek back then so i had put seeing his movies on hold for awhile then i watched alpha dog again in 2017 and looked up the cast on my phone and saw that Anton had died and it really bothered me i was sad for awhile cuz in the movies i saw he was memorizable in his roles. so in a honor of his death i imdb all the movies he's played in and bought them little at a time until i got them all, only one i cant find is a man is mostly water cuz they didnt release that movie on video or dvd, i hope they do in the future. this documentary i couldnt wait to get my hands on, i knew it was gonna be tough watching it cuz of how much i liked his acting in his movies and i admired the person he was even though i didnt know him. I sensed he was a really good person of his kind and a good soul. Its just a shame of how he died and then finding out he had cf a horrible disease that he kept from everyone he knew. I hope he is never forgotten and remembered forever! he is in a better place and doing greater things now then what he achieved in his short life. I hope we see him again in the after life! this is a great film that puts closure of his death to people around the world who knew who he was and who watch this movie. RIP Anton!

Watching this you feel the loss of this amazing man,but wow, what a full life! He really lived each day to the max and was so curious about life in a way that is so lost in the world now. Super talented in all directions. I feel so cheated,like a star just fell right out of the sky, but so thankful for all he gave to the world. I feel lazy when I see all he accomplished. Just seeing his book collection will inspire you to read. Want to give his parents a hug and thank them for raising such a beautiful human.
Star Trek, the 17 year old navigation officer, Anton Chekoff (probably spelled wrong) was charming. A good addition to the crew. Then we hear that the actor that played him got out of his car to open his gate at home and his car rolled into him, pinning him, and killing him. How awful! Such a young man, who was becoming increasingly important as an actor, to be cut off so young. Just stayed with me. I kept feeling regret for him. Loss. This movie is about his life. Seems like the boy was the father of the man. From a child of famous entertainers, he had decided he LOVED acting, and his parents fostered that. So they bought him cameras, recorders, video recorders and he used them to record his life. So we get a little peek into what it was to be him. Strangely giving him the attention he wanted by watching his film helped me feel less loss when I thought about his death. Not sure why.

Love the film, but "Amazon Digital" means you get a burned disc. The price is too high for a burned disc. I'll keep it, for now, but hope that a real DVD is pressed so we can get a quality picture. The disc doesn't indicate anywhere on it that it is burned disc, but has the blue underside.
