“What a bucket of fun, peeking into this director’s thickly plotted life. All the better with colorful tales of characters casually stopping by in urbane cameos. Vicariously, one is drawn to lively moments when Bogdanovich impeccably imitates Orson Welles, Cary Grant, or Hitchcock, which charmingly livens the tales.
Apart from many personal inside scoops we hear about the decision to shoot in black-and-white, which evokes a dusty realism of the Depression era in my personal favorite, Paper Moon.
Manckiewicz himself enters as the consummate host, as always. The casual interplay is what you would expect from a product of Hollywood and proper journalism: courteous queries with a flawless combination of knowledge, wit, and humility.
Mix a cocktail, sit back in a favorite lounger, and invite these guys into your living room.”
