documentary about robert evans, businessman/actor turned hollywood producer of the 1970s-90s. evans narrates the picture as it is based on his autobiography of the same name. with films like this i don’t know whether to judge the man or the film. the guy lived life, you can’t say he didn’t, but he’s not always exactly a sympathetic or likable person. when he shows his vulnerabilities, though, he is a fairly likable person in spite of his associations with the likes of henry kissinger et al.
the picture does a good job of combining evans’ narrative with stock footage, enlivened (camera pans and sfx) photos and other primary material. it’s an enjoyable and entertaining film which tells evans’ story fairly well. it also includes good information on the film industry during the 70s.
