Movie Info

Legendary Hollywood deal maker and would-be studio head Lew Wasserman oversaw Music Corporation of America's transition from talent agency to movie industry superpower, and blazed a trail in Hollywood's transition from the studio system -- where studios signed and developed in-house talent -- to the package system, where agents assembled attractive combinations of talents on a picture-by-picture basis. A divisive character who never granted interviews, Wasserman changed Hollywood forever.

Critic Reviews for The Last Mogul (Life and Times of Lew Wasserman)

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (3)

  • Highly entertaining.

    November 4, 2005 | Rating: 3/4
  • Lew Wasserman, who rose from the streets of Cleveland to become the most powerful man in Hollywood, is the subject of this absorbing documentary.

    November 4, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 1, 2005
  • While indistinct stylistically and inconclusive biographically, The Last Mogul does have a certain allure.

    July 29, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In covering so much acreage, Avrich has failed to dig deep for material that might have shed more light on Wasserman's ways.

    July 29, 2005 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A smart, well-paced documentary that balances the man's triumphs with his rare failures and discerningly explores the darker side of his power.

    June 23, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
