Audience Reviews for His Way
The breezy and anecdotal "His Way" starts off by committing the first sin of documentaries; assuming the audience already knows a great deal about its subject. Sure, Jerry Weintraub is in show business, hitting it big as a concert promoter(the clip of Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley singing a duet may not be as strange as Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing together, but it is still odd in its own way) and later producer of such prominent 80's movies as "Diner" and "The Karate Kid" but he is not really a household name since all of his work is behind the scenes. That's okay, as there are a lot of people included here who require no introduction to tell stories about him. So, if you want to hear Julia Roberts drop the F-bomb, then this just might be the film for you.
I've found a certain affinity that I have for various Hollywood documentaries, particularly those that give a look behind the scenes of the glory days of the '60s and the '70s, and this certainly fit the bill. Jerry Weintraub's story is very impressive as he sells himself from the ground up to rise to the top of his field as a producer, and his personal life is even more interesting, in that he happily lives a life with a wife and a girlfriend, who are themselves friends with no real complications. Wild stuff. Recommended.
Great doc of promoter Jerry Weintraub, who put on Elvis, Frank, Led Zep, Moody Blues etc tours and produced films including Nashville and Diner. I love docs like this.
