Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story online movie review - It's so much fun watching it you might forget it's a documentary
As a rule I don't rate documentaries. I hardly ever watch'em. The only documentaries I do watch are about cinema, or has a curious cinematic twist about the way they were made, otherwise count me out.
So obviously this one is about cinema, but the reason I did rate it and I'm even writing a review about it is the sheer fun of watching it. It's just like sitting with a bunch of friends and listening to one of them who's a great story teller, telling about all sorts of things you thought you knew. And all of a sudden all those things you thought you knew are seen in vivid new colors, completely fresh.
The Michelson couple is one of the most charming couples you'll ever meet. They're funny, witty and amazing storytellers. The outcome is simply riveting, and if you do love cinema it's a must see. you'll learn so much about the way things work behind the scenes, you wouldn't forgive yourself if you did miss it.
