Critic Reviews for Carol Channing: Larger Than Life
There's more than stage talk in Dori Berinstein's documentary: Hiding within it is a remarkable, moving love story.
There's little sense of the Carol Channing beneath the overdone makeup - if there is one - except maybe to celebrate her fourth marriage to a high school classmate who died recently.
[Captures] the essence of Carol as one of those creatures of the theater that when you see her onstage, you know you've seen something special.
Let's hope Dolly finds her way back to center stage and never goes away again.
In her ninth decade, Carol Channing is the subject of a documentary about her incredible life and devotion to entertainment that is as delightful and effervescent as the bubbly star herself.
Carol Channing: Larger than Life is like a warm cinematic hug from Shubert Alley, not to be missed by anyone with even the remotest passing interest in Channing or Broadway history.
This is a love letter to a born star and living legend that will make you laugh, cry, and be thankful that the great Channing is still here among us.
Here's hoping another generation will take a look at a life that's even more impressive for the fact that it continues to be a work in progress.
A bubbly 90-year-old mascot from the golden days of the American musical, this doc's subject is certainly larger than the conventional testimonial treatment she's given.
