The film content is great but the graphics and presentation is awful.
10 April 2015 | by mikewestcoastSee all my reviews

First let me say I love many types of movies, including black and white movies as well as watching "The Making Of", out-takes and movie documentaries. So, when I first discovered this documentary, I was very happy to begin to watch this TV series.

It is April 10, 2015 as I type this review because I found this documentary today on Netflex and starting watching it. (On this day, the first season only, is on Netflex.) According to Netflex, the first season has 20 episodes. The content of the interviews are fantastic. The directors I watched were very calm, as well as open and honest about their careers as directors. It was quite fantastic hearing them talk about their movies, the people they met and their life experiences.

However, I could only bear to watch 6 episodes. The opening graphics and other graphics in this documentary looked like something an administrative assistant or high school student, with no graphic design training what-so-ever, would do. Most of the filming had a box in the center of the frame which was in focus and the outside perimeter of the box was out-of-focus. At certain points, they would reduce the video of the director talking, to the left side of the frame, and then show another picture(s) or video (of a theater, film school or place where the director had been early in his career) on the right side of the frame and all pictures would be extremely small at this point. Having multiple small photos or videos running at the same time made it almost impossible to see what they were trying to show.

This documentary is too difficult on the eyes because of the horrible way which the unqualified person put together this film. What a sad tribute to the great Hollywood directors who took the time to be in this documentary, only to be framed in an ugly and aggravatingly graphically designed film.
