Some good parts but mostly boring
preppy-3 from United States
8 September 2017
Documentary about director Otto Preminger and his films. It doesn't go
over all his films only the hits like "Laura", "The Man With the Golden
Arm", "Anatomy of a Murder", "Advise and Consent" and "The Cardinal".
There's plenty of clips from the movies but they go on far too long.
Also plenty of talking heads of actors, producers and such who worked
with him. Most of them praise him to the high heavens except for Tom
Tryon who went through hell working for him. Narrated in a ponderous
fashion by Burgess Meredith. I found this dull, dull, DULL. Also the
documentary conveniently ignores his big-budget bombs like "Skidoo" and
"The Human Factor". Dull and disappointing.
