    I just saw the hbo documentary and was riveted at the story that unfolded. Wasn’t expecting to watch it and couldn’t turn away from it. He captured his brilliance of his career, his sadness of childhood loss of his brother ( even through the veil of dementia he couldn’t forget) and the failure as a parent. Very touching-as he said -just remember to forget-meaningful on many levels.

    I can’t believe you’re talking about the profoundly moving film I’ve just had the pleasure of watching. It’s a blessing that Alan Berliner continues to make masterfully sculpted movies that are simultaneously funny, touching and poignant often in the same breath. Here’s a thought, Kevin: perhaps you’d have a better chance of appreciating a film of this order if you left your preconceptions of what a “documentary” should be at the cinema entrance.
