Nice series !
4 July 2017 | by terrypulverSee all my reviews

I love programs about celebrities and cinema. They are usually quite short so it's nice to be able to finally watch a long and full interview, well-structured and illustrated with behind the scene and red carpet shots.

I also appreciate the fact that the director talk about his movies and also films from others that inspire him. I was surprised to hear that Farrely Bro's favorite movie is One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, it is my favorite movie too !
