Good documentary
21 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best and worst things going for this documentary is that Paul Williams is participating in the filming. The director didn't ask a lot of introspective questions; however, this really wasn't an interview as it was a film crew and director tagging along videotaping a busy Paul - during meetings, lunch and dinner, etc.. And when the director and Paul finally get around to conducting a really in-depth conversation, it was either cut short by Paul or the director.

Having Paul Williams, somewhat at the director's disposal, I would have liked for him to have discussed The Phantom of the Paradise more, the conventions, his opinions on some of his contemporaries or music from the '70s through today, any clean road stories, but, as the director noted,"Paul doesn't look back". That being the case, the director might have done better in-depth interviewing others about Paul Williams and reduced his screen time to about 25% of the movie.

Nonetheless, still a good movie about a fellow childhood hero.
