A wonderful look into the reality of the acting profession
For those of us who actually had the privilege of studying acting with Sanford Meisner, this remarkable documentary is a wonderful reminder of that experience. For those who are curious about the reality of the life of an actor, this is an eye opener.
Sanford Meisner during his teaching career was arguably America's greatest acting teacher. His only serious rivals were Stella Adler, Lee Strasberg, and Uta Hagen. Together they elevated the standard of professional acting in America. Kent Paul's carefully created documentary can make you understand the reasons why this is true.
Before Sandy (as his students refer to him) died, he was asked, "How do you want to be remembered? As a grest teacher?"
He replied, "As an influence." That is already the case, and should be for years to come. Grab the chance to see this documentary the next time that it is shown on PBS or Bravo. It is nothing less than enlightening.
