One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich & The Lost American Film is the story of maverick film director Peter Bogdanovich's love for both the late Dorothy Stratten and his "lost" film They All Laughed. This film tells of how his once 'Lost' film came to be championed by filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach, and of the sweet, makeshift family that's sprung up around They All Laughed's tragedies - bonds still strong more than 30 years later. One Day Since Yesterday is a wistful valentine to art, love, loss, redemption and the power of cinema.

Stunningly great documentary for movie lovers
3 September 2016 | by InterleposSee all my reviews

Not often do I feel compelled to write a review on IMDb, but after watching this documentary I just felt that it was crucial to spread the word. If you are a movie lover, you will adore this documentary.

As a movie fan, you will know the pleasures of discovering hidden gems amongst older movies. Viewing a documentary that celebrates such a hidden gem (They All Laughed - 1981), is really invigorating, and a good concept. That the film being lauded happens to be a Peter Bogdanovich film, makes it even more interesting, because of his famous career of peaks and valleys. Finding hidden gems in the valley of any director can often be the most interesting part. If a movie is very underrated, you want to scream about it from the rooftops - to recommend it to people. And that is one of the things that makes the creation of this doc so pleasing. It is shining a spotlight on a movie that never got it's proper due.

The documentary is never boring, and always entertaining. The interviews are uncommonly insightful and touching. I especially liked Quentin Tarantino's reflections on movie watching, and on Bogdanovich. I also appreciated Ben Gazzaras' honesty.

Some underrated movies are so good that you just have to make a documentary about them. I applaud the director (Bill Teck) for making a love letter to a movie - that deserves more recognition - and to a legendary director, who also deserves a documentary of this quality about himself. It's terrific.
