The film sees the creative process as a sacrament in which the play's not the thing but the getting there is.

A theater director's wife directs an admiring diary, as he rehearses an Ibsen play. Andre Gregory fancies himself a shaman but just comes off as an irrepressible raconteur.

The best scenes here show the retired thespian rehearsing a workshop production of Ibsen's The Master Builder with his friend, frequent collaborator, and Dinner costar Wallace Shawn.

The witty and hilarious biopic looks back with fondness on how Gregory became an American icon in the theater and even found relative success in Hollywood.

If you've long yearned to know more about the guy in My Dinner with Andre (or Demolition Man if you prefer), here's your chance.

"Before and After Dinner" is not fully satisfying, but it does offer a rich portrait of the artist as an ever-seeking explorer.

...touching and inspiring, celebrating a creative fervor that hasn't been dulled by age. On the contrary, Gregory's race against mortality has only made him more passionate.

As in My Dinner with Andre, Gregory comes across as a man who may not have all the answers, but never stops asking the right questions.

Perhaps the most valuable insight that the film provides about its subject is that he acts even as he directs.
