too short, too short, too short!!!
7 July 2002 | by (cultural waste land, US) – See all my reviews

too short, too short, too short!!! As expected, this short documentary contains interviews and clips from other materials. The jewel is in the excerpts from her one-woman recital (especially done for this film??).
