I've posted a link to this thread for those interested in film and one of the greatest film directors. I'll keep this thread as a sticky until November 22nd.

I caught the screening at the Academy Linwood Dunn theatre tonight. It was a wonderful and powerful experience. A superb documentary, one of the best I've seen on a filmmaker. Bogdanovich introduced the screening and did an awesome Q and A (along with the applicable voices, he does a killer jimmy Stewart and an excellent John Wayne) afterwards.

I really wish the Academy or the American Cinematheque would do a retrospective of the films featured in this doc, at least. Though he directed enough surviving material for a dozen retrospectives.

the inclusion of the Katherine Hepburn material was wonderful, more of a piece with the rest of the doc than the new interviews.

There are many that can't stand Bogdanovich, but I for one really like to hear him talk about film and filmmakers. Though, some of his humor falls flat at times, I think overall he interjects his film commentary with a nice blend of humor and personable traits about the filmmakers that makes his commentary very worthwhile for me to listen to.
