Good but a bit superficial.
18 August 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Rivers to the Sea" is certainly not one of the best episodes of "American Masters". It's not that it's a bad just lacks the depth you'd expect in such a film from a usually exceptional series. Plus, you sure expect a better film about a complex man like Ernest Hemingway. Let me explain. While the film does give an overview of his life, several important things are ignored which would explore the man's psychological profile. After all, he tried VERY hard to create an ultra-macho persona, went through wives as often as many people change cars, had an almost pathological need for excitement (or at least to make it SEEM like he was a great adventurer in some cases), wasn't a particularly good father and committed suicide when he was 61. Wouldn't THESE sort of things be worth exploring in greater detail?! You could make a mini-series out of exploring the man's psychological makeup!! Well, in this case, they evidently thought not! Considering how important a literary figure he was, you could probably do better than this show.
