Revealing look at a unique personality. His showmanship and steadfastness to his beliefs are admirably brought out. But the fact that he remained a showman to the end of his days, putting on a face in public, meant that maybe we never will get to see the man behind the show-man. Somehow get the feeling that his personal hopes, vision, fears etc. are never truly revealed. But a recommended viewing nevertheless.
