    Like the Oscars themselves at their best, it’s a celebration of the movies.

    A breezy new keepsake documentary that relives the Academy Awards' 85-year history.

    Simply put, though, the audience’s sophistication goes beyond the structure of And the Oscar Goes to...., which, for a project about the movie business, suffers from a fundamental and rather glaring flaw: It lacks focus.

    This film is much more than that. From the boyish exuberance of Ben Affleck’s and Matt Damon’s joint 1998 acceptance speech to Hanks’ anecdote about a hard-of-hearing Bette Davis, this is a rich-bodied appetizer for TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar main course.

    If not all things to all people, this Oscar salute should be enough for most.
