This has got to be my favorite review of the film. WOWOWOWOW Thank you so much!!!
“But for those that have not previously genuflected at the altar, or who don’t know his story, or have maybe only heard his name once or twice — this movie is really for you. Hal is a docuportrait, and a smartly constructed one at that, hitting all the beats it needs to, from high points to rock bottom, rough childhood to untimely death at the age of 59. But as a primer for why he’s one of the most important figures of a deservedly lauded era, this film is damn near invaluable. You leave know exactly why Ashby mattered. It’s as perfect an act of attention-must-be-paid reclamation, an additional carving on moviedom’s Mt. Rushmore, as anyone could ask for.” — David Fear
