Good, but too short...
planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This is one of four documentaries included on the bonus disk for the
DVD release of "Dr. Strangelove". This featurette focuses on the career
of Peter Sellers--with a particular emphasis on on his work on "Dr.
Strangelove". It consists of many interviews and film clips.
Unfortunately, it could not have interviews with Sellers, as he died
rather young of a heart attack more than two decades earlier.
While I enjoyed this film, I found it lacking--mostly because I am more
than a casual fan of the films of Sellers. Having seen lengthier
documentaries, having watched the made for HBO docu-drama on his life
and watching just about all his available films, I wanted perhaps too
much from the film. It focused exclusively on Sellers' work--and not at
all on his personality or life. Plus, even as a filmography, it was
short--and TONS of great Sellers films were never mentioned. As a
result, it's a great look at Sellers for the casual or uninitiated
viewer and not much more.
