Evans é uma figura fascinante, e é justamente sua narração em off, associada à ótima edição, que transforma este documentário em um ácido depoimento sobre Hollywood.

remarkable in the sense that, for all his self-aggrandizing tendencies, Evans conveys himself as both powerful and vulnerable, still a Hollywood myth of grand proportions, but also a human being

What works best is the candid nature of Evans' remarks , which often reveal more than Evans himself probably intended.
