The committed artists of Something's Gonna Live, while grateful for their remarkable careers, are not sentimentalists. What a challenge their body of work presents to current and future filmmakers!

Hollywood reserves several minutes out of every year to commemorate its past. Fortunately filmmakers like Daniel Raim are here to fill out the rest of the schedule.

What sets the film apart are its tender sense of camaraderie (felt in many candid, informal conversations) and its thematic heft: these artists genuinely want to reflect the human condition, a value often lost in today's technological extravaganzas.

The film is at its best when it shows these masters at work, both then and now.

Audience Reviews for Something's Gonna Live

Of the six filmmakers we meet in this doc, sadly only Haskell Wexler is still living now. Yet as the cumbersome title suggests their work still lives. Art Director Robert Boyle is the main focus. He is self-reflective and adorable throughout. He is joined by old friends and fellow art directors Henry Bumstead and Albert Nozaki. Each of their careers is briefly illustrated with anecdotes and samples of their work. Examples of Boyle's collaborations with Conrad Hall, Harold Michelson and Wexler are each also discussed. The documentary jumps around without a clear narrative thread unfortunately.
