Loved it.
11 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Really terrific profile of the unusual and acerbic writer-director-actor-character, with contributions from both lovers and haters -- unusual for this kind of documentary, the nay- sayers get to say their nays. Jaglom comes across as articulate, difficult, funny, entertaining, shifty and possibly a genius or maybe talentless. It's hard to say, but fascinating to watch.

It's not often one can recommend a film documentary to those who dislike as well as those who like a filmmaker, but this one seems to offer plenty for both camps.

This film definitely surprised me. Every time I thought I had a handle on Jaglom, the movie spun in 180 degrees and threw me off the scent once again.

A unique profile for film lovers and just lovers of interesting characters.
