Finally, Burt's Swan Song.
8 September 2018 | by imbluzcloobySee all my reviews

Burt was my hero growing up for many of the reasons why many other guys liked him: his charisma, charm, smarmy attitude, rogue behavior and wit. He had qualities that so many stars lack. In his most personal role ever he recounts the pivotal cornerstones of his life, the good times. the bad times and the success which also destroyed much of what he cherished. The most touching part comes at the end where he addresses the audience at his award ceremony with painful honesty and humility. It's definitely a humanistic picture where we see a former icon come to terms with himself. Worth a look.
