Fantastic Piece of Non-Fictional Cinema
12 June 2019 | by NewGirlNickMillerSee all my reviews

I want to start by saying that I don't really care for documentaries unless the subject matter is something I care deeply about. That being said, I've never had a deep love for the entertainment industry. I almost skipped over this, but something about the trailer made me decide to give it a chance. Within minutes, I was hooked not only on the style of this particular documentary, but on Clarence Avant and his personality. I fell in love with the man over the course of the film, and I wish I could meet him.

A lot of the anecdotes that are told throughout the film are both funny and heart-warming. This man did so much for so many people, and touched so many lives in the process. If you're on the fence about watching this, give it a chance. I'm not saying you're going to love it, because I don't know you. But give it a chance.
