Review this tv show
Oct 29, 2013You know how there are certain projects that critics love just because they think the concept is clever, they like the people, there's a sly insider prospective, etc. This is one of those projects. The reviews were good, I like Alec Baldwin, I was expecting to like it. BUT about half way in, I was bored and not really appreciating it.
The concept is unusual, a movie about making a movie loaded with interviews with real people we all know. Many of the interviews were tedious, (Ryan Gosling an exception)
