If you're a Clift fan try to see this doc!
31 October 2018 | by montymonvieuxSee all my reviews

So glad I had the opportunity to see Making Montgomery Clift at the SVA Theatre in New York. Rather than being a biography, the film allows the viewer to consider Monty in a fresh light through the efforts of filmmakers, Robert Clift (a nephew) and Hillary Demmon (Robert 's wife). It dispells the tired myth of "tragic, closeted drug-addicted alcoholic" that was reported and repeated in previous biographies.

Not sure how wide a release this will get as seems to be playing only in specialized, small film festivals, currently. So refreshing to see this upbeat, loving perspective and learn about exaggerations and "untruths" told even in the best biographical attempts.
