Quotes

Sylvain Despretz: Highly creative people have a hard time getting their movies made. Full stop. That's all it is. Because they bring stuff that blows everyone away, and as much as the claim is they want something original, they're terrified of it. That's what happens. So, you don't see those movies because they scare everybody up the chain of command.

Mehhh
20 July 2015 | by HampausSee all my reviews

When you make a documentary about a messy film you run the risk of making a messy film yourself, that's what I feel happened here unfortunately. Too long and not gripping subject enough for a talking head doc.

Should have been better structured, now it feels like the filmmaker got a lot of material and just put it together without a clear thought and without the ability to kill his darlings.

Sorry.

Positive: Tim Burton and some of the material from production that is hard to otherwise get to see.
