A 5 star documentary but a 3 star for the price to own it
on September 1, 2014
A 5 star documentary but a 3 star for the price to own it. A fitting example of a high quality documentary one might find on PBS or the BBC but I wouldn't normally pay $15.47 to own a copy of a hour long,commercial-free TV documentary if it weren't for my fascination with the person and the subject. A short biography of his life with an in-depth interview of the Maestro reflecting back on memorable roles in his career. He is a warm and generous guest when he has the time to grant an interview. The archival footage was well done and for those who were unfamiliar with the depth and breath of the contribution he has made to his craft, this is a nice introduction but by no means anywhere near comprehensive.
