Critic Reviews for McKellen: Playing the Part
Eben Bolter's almost expressionist lighting gives the red-chair interviews a theatrical warmth. The editing, like the acting, is impressively off-handed in the recreated scenes, which flip by like quickly turned pages in a book of memories.
It's a must-see for any fan, and, be honest, is there anyone who's not an Ian McKellen fan?
McKellen's rich turn of phrase and self-deprecating expertise with building the perfect anecdote makes him tremendous company throughout here.
A comprehensive and entertaining enough overview ... [but] Sir Ian deserves at least two hours ... it's a bit of everything in 92 minutes, and as such, it's completely entertaining, charming and lovely while also being annoyingly unsatisfying.
The film, filled with photographs and clips from McKellen's films, is a revealing insight into an important contributor to theatre and cinema.
