Audience Reviews for The Hollywood Complex
This is one of those documentaries that you laugh at, but also makes you sad or cringe the rest of the time. There was one mother/daughter combo that was particularly tragic and sad - they were completely out of touch with reality.
This is a solid documentary with a nice sense of humor. The subject of child actors is a tense issue. Some see the parents as monster forcing their kids to live out their own fantasy of fame and fortune while other see it as the biggest sacrifice a parent can make in a gamble to fulfill their child's dream. We get to see a little of both in this film as well as some of the ugly aspects of the Hollywood system.
There sure are a lot of precocious kids in this movie, and the fact that they all live together in the same apartment complex and desperately want to be on camera makes these documentarians' job an easy one. It is still a wonderful effort and a very compelling story. Rational people will be largely horrified at what these kids and their parents will do for success, but according to the filmmakers some families have watched this and said, "You know, we were getting discouraged, but after we watched your film we were just filled with confidence." Just goes to show how delusional some of these people really are.
