Critic Reviews for Almost There
Narrated by the 83-year-old Anton, the documentary takes on even more emotional punch as you hear the joy, the sadness, the pain, the anticipation in his time-weary voice; no "talking head" could have done his story justice.

He's demanding, imperious, self-pitying and manipulative to a degree that would be difficult to accept in a major talent, let alone a wannabe whose work barely rises to the level of paint-by-numbers. Nor is this portrait of him particularly well crafted.

The observational documentary meets the observer effect in Almost There as filmmakers chronicle how their solitary subject is changed by their own scrutiny.
