The second time I saw it, I marveled at the force of nature that is Lillian Michelson, whose remarkable research library guided generations of filmmakers.
The third time I saw it, I finally saw it — my fascination with Hollywood no longer distracting me. I saw it for the truly touching yet not romanticized love story that is at its heart, all the more real and deeply human as it plays out against the backdrop of Hollywood make-believe.
I can't think of another documentary I've seen more than twice. Go see it at least once on the big screen while you can.
