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.
The doc also recalls a simpler age when people became famous because of their accomplishments, rather than striving for fame as a goal in itself.
It's a powerful and vast anthology straight from the horse's mouth.
Who wouldn't want to spend 90 minutes in the company of Sir Ian McKellen?
An absolute treat of an interview with a man who has told other people's stories wonderfully for decades and tells his own just as well.
