Exceptional overview of one of my favorite actors
2 October 2019 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Portrait of an artist driven by immense hunger and passion, "The World's A Stage" is Raúl Juliá's life under a reverential magnifying glass. The people gathered to offer up commentary and anecdotes do so out of love and admiration, clearly happy to be there.

I've been beating the drum for years; that he's often the shining star in an otherwise great cast. Charisma for days. I hope this marks a newfound recognition of his legacy, even if it's taken twenty-five years to happen.

Put simply, if you only know the man as Gomez Addams, do yourself a favor and give this a watch. It traces his arc from birth to tragic death, and I guarantee you'll walk away with a newfound appreciation for his art. Also, keep a tissue handy.
