Loving and detailed documentary about the legendary Hollywood casting director Marion Dougherty. Plenty of actors and directors - Clint Eastwood, Glenn Close, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Robert Redford among them -attest to her warmth and instinctive skills. Only Taylor Hackford will have cause to regret his contribution.
Great film and very informative.
Terrific. Educational for film buffs in the best way and with all star participation. A doc very well done.
A fascinating look at an approach to casting by looking at some of the giants of the field, one that does not get its due nor is properly appreciated as a vital piece of the film making process. Where it falters somewhat is in its dismissing of the previous studio system of selecting actors who they had under contract. It was imperfect for sure but resulted in many classics so obviously something about it worked, though to hear about it here it was a worthless and completely counter productive to proper casting.

A thoroughly interesting and revealing documentary on an often unsung role of movie production.
A nice ode to Marion Dougherty, but I wish the doc had spread it's focus a little more to other major casting directors. Still pretty good.
Wonderful documentary about a few casting directors, most significantly, Marion Dougherty, an unsung contributor to many great directors (many of whom are interviewed). Great doc for geeks.
Persuasive testimonial honoring one of modern cinema's most influential and unheralded talents. As inspiring as it is interesting.
This movie should be called, "All About Marion Dougherty" or "Blowing Sunshine Up Marion Dougherty's Ass". How many times can they say, "Marion Dougherty" in 60 seconds? If this was a documentary about the industry of casting directors in general, I might be sold, but I can't sit up and listen to praise of one person for an hour plus.?
