Tells It Like It Is., 21 February 2002
Author: eye3

A superb behind-closed-doors documentary of the Hollywood producer. We get the stories straight from the horses' mouths.

(Insert wisecrack here.)

This should be mandatory viewing for all movie-making classes. I can hardly wait until this is released on video.
