Audience Reviews for Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me

  • Mar 24, 2014
    "Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me" is a cautionary tale about meeting one's hero lest they tell you about the time they had their first orgasm, while acting in 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' on stage.(John Turturro looks stunned but I'm pretty sure he's okay.) That kind of tells you the kind of person Elaine Stritch is, aside from being a legendary actor and singer who is a long, long way from being a convent girl in the suburbs of Detroit. The documentary follows her around as she quickly approaches her 87th birthday while looking back periodically and fearing the future, as she copes with the infirmities of old age, along with diabetes and alcoholism. However, that does not stop her from working or from being as feisty or funny as ever.
