Critic Reviews for Being Evel
There was a real darkness there - behind the American flags and the fringed jackets and the fireworks - and Being Evel, to its credit, isn't afraid to face it.
It doesn't illuminate the guy's character beyond what's obvious. Nor does it bestow much depth upon Knievel.
"Being Evel" treads a fine line, making it clear that its subject was a heroic symbol of his times and a clear sports innovator while also acknowledging - and there's no getting around this - that the guy was a huge jerk.
A savvy documentary that gives the granddaddy of extreme sports his due while gauging the national climate that welcomed his shrewdly timed arrival.
Even if Daniel Junge's documentary falls a bit short of its goal, it deserves points for trying.
