An astounding tapestry of an astounding life
28 April 2009 | by swordanpenSee all my reviews

Hank Goldspun was a courageous and benevolent rogue. He was a man anchored with the uncommon drive that most of us only read about or see in, well, the movies.

Where I Stand: The Hank Greenspun Story is inspired by Greenspun's autobiography. This film is an impressive, artistic weave of Mr. Goldspun's world -- an insightful collage of live footage, photographs, interviews, and Anthony Hopkin's narration. This work is smoothly sequenced, quick-paced, and an historically enticing delight. It is not at all the typical maudlin biography/documentary of an astounding life lived, but, instead, an astounding tapestry of that astounding life.
