Film Geek Central

It offers a fascinating peek into the (not always glamorous) life of a Hollywood big shot. Full of insight, meaty tidbits, and not without humor, this documentary is one of the best.

The entire movie is purely from Evans' own perspective and any baggage he carries, but it sure is a treat.

Evans é uma figura fascinante, e é justamente sua narração em off, associada à ótima edição, que transforma este documentário em um ácido depoimento sobre Hollywood.

| Original Score: 4/5

But for film buffs at least, Evans's vivid story will make them feel nostalgic for this period of Hollywood history.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

A skewed, self-serving but revealing portrait of Evans's life . . . a perversely thrilling look at the pathetic backroom truth behind some of '70s Hollywood's deepest films.

I'm willing to bet ... that I don't see another [documentary] this year as richly entertaining or as cathartic.

Frank, hugely entertaining but hugely biased film.

A fascinating look at the topsy-turvy life of a high powered Hollywood producer that is far stranger than any work of fiction.

Brilliantly crafted documentary about Hollywood legend Robert Evans may not be the unvarnished truth, but it is great, glossy fun.

remarkable in the sense that, for all his self-aggrandizing tendencies, Evans conveys himself as both powerful and vulnerable, still a Hollywood myth of grand proportions, but also a human being

What works best is the candid nature of Evans' remarks , which often reveal more than Evans himself probably intended.
