Lew Wasserman, who rose from the streets of Cleveland to become the most powerful man in Hollywood, is the subject of this absorbing documentary.
Avrich's Wasserman is less a man than a list of accomplishments, a Kane without a hint of a Rosebud and nary a whiff of significant criticism.
While indistinct stylistically and inconclusive biographically, The Last Mogul does have a certain allure.
In covering so much acreage, Avrich has failed to dig deep for material that might have shed more light on Wasserman's ways.
A smart, well-paced documentary that balances the man's triumphs with his rare failures and discerningly explores the darker side of his power.
Avrich's colorful account of Wasserman's career starts out looking like a puff piece, but quickly reveals a refreshing willingness to delve into the dirty side of a glamorous business.
The jazzy credit sequence uses Wasserman's trademark big black eyeglasses as a playful motif, but the film itself is all business
Does an impeccable job in documenting both the dark and light side of one of the most successful, yet secretive, celebrities North America has ever known.
It's a pretty old school doc -- no dramatizations or ambushes -- as befits a eulogy for old school Hollywood.
A Powerful Mogul. Avrich documentary reveals truth about Wasserman.
While...occasionally uncomplimentary, the final product feels mostly like a hagiography...tiptoeing around the issue of Wasserman's mob connections
