A bit slow in the early chapters devoted to Miller's family history, the documentary takes off once the playwright's career kicks into gear.
That documentary, which airs on HBO Monday night, is a true labor of love-a charming 100-minute film that offers an insider's account of a complicated life.
There's an eloquent handmade quality to "Arthur Miller: Writer," filmmaker Rebecca Miller's engagingly intimate portrait of her famous father.
A skilled filmmaker of some considerable experience, Rebecca has pieced together this revealing portrait of her father from 20 years of candid interviews conducted on the family's beautiful rural estate.
Warm portrait on dad.
A thoughtful and ethically illuminating documentary
[It] is a thorough and thoroughly excellent documentary about a very significant 20th century writer. It's also thoroughly excellent in its presentation of the larger and more universal quandaries around how children understand their parents
... the comprehensive documentary "Arthur Miller: Writer" (HBO, 8 p.m.) the author of "Death of a Salesman" and so many other works is warm, thoughtful and expansive, probably because he's talking to his daughter [director Rebecca Miller].
This film biography of one of America's greatest playwrights is an extremely personal, subjective, and candid one, and with good reason.
Much worse is her fractured retelling of the events surrounding Miller's confrontation with the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) and its investigation of Hollywood's Communist Party in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
She interviewed [her father] for decades...Adds personal and archival photographs, home movies, and talks with relatives and friends, this is a warm and intimate reflection.
