The best evidence of this troubled man's genius is provided by ample samples of his music, much of which will be familiar to fans of Warner Bros. cartoons from the '30s and '40s.
Like "My Architect," Nathaniel Kahn's film about his father, Louis I. Kahn, this documentary is a son's attempt to forge a posthumous bond with an elusive parent.
Deconstructing Dad might be a messy biography, but it is a fascinating primer on Scott's work.
Honest, illuminating and compassionate. An extraordinary documentary.
Yet another documentary about a supposedly unheralded show-business maverick just barely holds viewer interest.
Scott's son, Stan Warnow, made a highly personal documentary ... It isn't slick or polished but it is candid and highly personal, as Stan tries to understand his enigmatic father who was, by all accounts, a musical genius.
The documentary is a work of careful consideration, moral weighing, and deliberateness of craft.
