They Did as Well As They Could
15 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There were wonderful movies made in the 80's. I recall having a job at a mall. I would leave home early, go see a movie, and then off to work. So as I watched this film, I realized I had seen nearly all the featured films. As a documentary, it focuses more on the people who made the movies than a serious look at individual films. It's more theme oriented than film oriented.
