For Actors and Film Buffs

 on April 21, 2015

I love character actors and this documentary (like “That Guy… Who Was in That Thing” and “I Know That Voice”) focuses on several who are better known because of their visibility in some of the great films of the seventies and eighties. Interviewed by Dabney Coleman, the film mixes war stories with in depth looks at the acting process (Charles Grodin is, predictably, the most cantankerous, but even he has legitimate points to make about acting schools). It is like having drinks with these legends and just listening to what they have to say.

A wonderful opportunity to visit veteran actors discussing their craft, sharing their thoughts on acting, acting classes, their mentors, etc., with a warm frankness and honesty. It features a vision of Dabney Coleman that you seldom see, also Charles Grodin in a no-nonsense diatribe on how brilliant actors are often overlooked by producers and directors who seem clueless when it comes to certain actors’ work–men and women whose brilliance never made it to commercial stage, nor screen. Harry Dean Stanton always delivers on the sheer force of his persona (as do Peter Falk). Mark Rydell was of particular interest due to his somewhat Zen-like approach to his craft and his ability to stray from the norm in his audition process. My personal favorite of them all was the late, great Mr. Sydney Pollack, who has left us not only with brilliant films but wonderful acting performances. His segments were poignant, wise, and moving. It was all presented to us in dazzling black-and-white cinematography! I saw this film twice!

very intriguing

A very intriguing glimpse into the mindset of actors as they are developing their craft. The “character” being addressed, is what are the kinds of things that go into making a successful actor. All of those interviewed spent a great deal of time homing their craft doing scenes and plays on stage, as well as film and television.

ACTORS this is a must watch.

This is one of the greatest films about the craft and struggle of acting. It stars Dabney Coleman, Peter Falk, Charles Grodin, Mark Rydell, Harry Dean Stanton and Sydney Pollack. This is Sydney Pollack’s last interview.

Superb!
