Great lesson for anyone interested in show business
9 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

Really, check it out.

Very very enlightening on how human beings should work and live. Especially in the show business industry.

Too many are blinded by pursuing money and glamour in life. But what is the use when they don't give themselves enough time to rest and enjoy every moment as best as they can? They suffer themselves and their family.

Even if a person is fueled by passion during their work hours, they would not be able to function and enjoy their work as well if they chalk up sleep debt. Even if a person wants to be married to their work, treat your family (your work) well.

Rest up yourself and upgrade your life. Prolonged sleep deprivation is VERY detrimental to life and the fight against it in the show business industry is needed.

This documentary highlights and explore just this point wonderfully.

If somehow, somehow you read this Mr Haskell Wexler. Thank you.

Thank you for this enlightening documentary.
