Perfect Movie
17 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is outstanding on all levels covered all of Hughes' life which is surprising for a t.v. movie.

Don't ever look for any movie t.v. or not to tell the full story of anyones life.This film was done at a time when there was actually(URGH)truth and balance in media.

I saw this movie with the limited opinion that he was just some nut case and came away with the opinion that he was an extraordinary complicated man who let his ego get the better of him.

There is a message in this film for all of us and that is not to ignore your problems or difficulties.

I feel sorry for younger people who will never get the chance to see a biopic that would tell a persons story as accurately as they could.

At least not one that was made in this country and certainly not one that was done by Americans.
