Author: runamokprods from US

Enjoyable documentary on the staging of Sam Shepard's play 'The Late Henry Moss, with a star- laden cast (who are also some of our very finest actors). Some fascinating, and often funny interviews with Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Sam Shepard and others as they struggle through the artistic process. Even more interesting - at least to me- was the actual footage of the rehearsal process, where we can watch how a group with all this great talent slowly finds its way along with the material and each other. Indeed, if I had a complaint it would be that I would have loved more of the work process, even at the expense of some of the talking heads. A must for anyone interested in theater in general or Sam Shepard in particular.
