I did it my way.

Despite having heard his name many, many times, I really wasn't sure who David Geffen is nor why, exactly, he was famous. Fortunately, for folks who live under rocks like me, there's this installment of "American Masters" that gives a nice overview of his life. It's enhanced by not only having lots of interviews with Geffen himself but a wide, wide variety of stars who talk about him--the business Geffen, the personal Geffen, the philanthropic Geffen and, at the end, the tough and unrelenting Geffen who, if crossed, could be a tough, tough adversary. Most documentaries about moguls are short--too short. Fortunately, this one was designed for a two-hour time slot. Also fortunately, it does NOT paint a one-dimensional portrait of the guy. His very admirable and scary sides to his personality are shown and the film is not some whitewash fluff piece on the guy (such as including details of his feud with the Clinton family). Well worth seeing, informative and exceptionally well made.
