The director's director
8 September 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Richard Schickel, a film critic, embarks in this voyage of discovery in this documentary that was presented recently on cable. Having read Elia Kazan's voluminous autobiography, we thought we knew it all, but the director includes a lot of information about the director, making the viewer to know the man better. The narration by Eli Wallach is first rate. Mr. Wallach knew the man well, having worked with him in several projects.

Mr. Kazan is infamous for his pointing fingers at friends and people that suffered a lot because of the machinations of Sen. McCarthy during the "witch hunt" of the fifties. Mr. Kazan's life changed right after that time, but he didn't stop working.

Mr. Kazan was a man that was at home both, in the theater and in the movies. He dominated the American stage like no other director, or had his track record challenged by any other man in the succeeding years. His legacy speaks volumes about what he was able to accomplish and we are witness by looking at the film work he left.

Thanks to Mr. Schickel for his take on the man.
