In this rippingly entertaining documentary of Reilly's celebrated autobiographical monologue Save It for the Stage, the unfailingly witty, shamelessly bitchy Reilly gets to set the record straight about a number of things.
One could say there are two kinds of people: those who appreciate Charles Nelson Reilly, and those who don't know enough about him. This engaging documentary will charm the former and educate the latter.
Occasionally you see a documentary and it hits you how much you don't know about someone who was part of your mental landscape. Charles Nelson Reilly didn't arouse much of anything in me, but he does in The Life of Reilly.
