Critic Reviews for Hal
"Hal" deals with each of the director's films in a smart, engaging manner.
It must have been daunting to make a film about a master editor and filmmaker, but Scott has clearly learned from her careful attention to Ashby's films.
What comes through in "Hal" is that the kind of movies Ashby excelled at making were a challenge to get made even then, and face more formidable hurdles -- ... character-driven films have taken a back seat to the pursuit of global hits.
If there's still the sense that Ashby isn't as sanctified as American New Wave stalwarts Coppola or Scorsese, Amy Scott's breezy tribute of a documentary is out to correct that oversight.
