The Kid Stays in the Picture (2002)

The Kid Stays in the Picture

Directors: Nanette Burstein & Brett Morgen

Writer: Brett Morgen (Based on a book by Robert Evans)

I love books/films about making movies especially in this era of the 60s and 70s.  I read this book in High School and loved it even if it did smell a little, actually a lot, like BS.  This documentary was alright but it kinda just played like a 90 minute abridged audio book of the movie.  Evans narrates the whole time while we see images and video from the moments he is talking about.  It is a good approach, instead of having other people in present day telling the stories, but as someone who read the book it didn’t really bring much new to the table in terms of information.
