    Tremendous documentary on the life of Robert Evans as seen through his eyes. It held the audiences interest throughout with a great look back at photographs and bits of movies from another era gone by. As you watch his life unfold, it brought to mind Jackie Gleason's old saying: "Be nice to people you meet on the way up because it will be the same people that you will meet on the way Tremendous documentary on the life of Robert Evans as seen through his eyes. It held the audiences interest throughout with a great look back at photographs and bits of movies from another era gone by. As you watch his life unfold, it brought to mind Jackie Gleason's old saying: "Be nice to people you meet on the way up because it will be the same people that you will meet on the way down!" The documentary shows his metoric rise to fame from a chance happening, how he saved Paramount Studios, and his crash back into hell. The best part is that you can actually feel his experience. Simply a tremendous film that lays his guts and blood on a platter for all too see. Expand

  1. A candy store for film buffs.

    One of the funniest, and most telling, films of the year. The filmmakers call "Kid" a documentary, but the movie is one of the unusual kind that is firmly lodged inside the subject's perspective.
  3. The best part is during the closing credits. Dustin Hoffman does a brilliant, dead-on impression of Evans that captures the essence of the man more than all the self-serving grandiosity that preceded it.
