Audience Reviews for This So-Called Disaster

  • Aug 09, 2005
    [font=Century Gothic]"This So-Called Disaster" is a documentary directed by Michael Almereyda about the 2000 San Francisco production of Sam Shepard's play,"The Late Henry Moss", which was inspired by his father's life. Shepard directed Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Woody Harrelson, James Gannon, Cheech Marin and Sheila Tousey(what a cast!) in the play. The documentary shows the rehearsal process and sheds a good deal of light on how the actors created their performances for the stage. We also get to see how a play is directed. There are thoughts here on what it means to be a father and what it means to be a son, too.[/font]
