Critic Reviews for A.K.A. Doc Pomus
A touching, delightful and exceptionally well-crafted new documentary, "AKA Doc Pomus" follows the life and career of Pomus, who wrote "Save the Last Dance for Me," "A Teenager in Love," "Viva Las Vegas" and scores of other hits.
Expertly put together by editor Amy Linton, "AKA Doc Pomus" uses its wealth of material to create the sense of a man with a genius for putting undistilled emotion into his songs.
This static documentary portrait relies on the usual panning over photos and tag-team interviews, but the format, like the radio length of a song, doesn't get in the way of its subject's heart.
Even if you know this history already, A.K.A. Doc Pomus is vital and endearing, a celebration of a great artist, a great character, and the universality of great pop.
