Original movie
21 November 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie showed the benefit of a director and a producer being in the right place at the right time and choosing a wildfire talent.

I liked the way the movie was edited so that you got quite an intimate view of Tim's life without intruding too far. I also liked the regular inclusion of Tim's performances. He really is audacious, controversial and thoughtful in his work.

The progression thru the Edniburgh festival was exciting to watch as Tim's success unfurled. The love between the Tim and his wife also seemed sincere and passionate and was captured clearly.

The originality of the movie stems from the fact that film-makers started to capture the story before the subject had succeeded and became famous. Many films show a retrospective view of a star's success this one captured the birth of his career.
