This "Biography" ep of John Belushi doesn't completely show how charismatic he was onscreen and only partially shows how tragic his life became near the end
20 January 2020 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Managed to watch this "Biography" ep of John Belushi online just now. It traces his career from Second City to National Lampoon's Lemmings to "Saturday Night Live" to Animal House to The Blues Brothers to his career declines and eventual passing from an overdose. Among those interviewed were close friend and performing partner Dan Aykroyd, widow Judith Jacklin, brother and fellow actor James Belushi as well as some archive footage from their mom, Agnes and Animal House and Blues Brothers director John Landis, among others. Clips from John's TV and film appearances don't really do him justice as they're always too short and the interviews only hint at the person John was really like as it seems to partially gloss over how tragic his life became near the end especially when the name Cathy Evelyn Smith doesn't get mentioned once. It probably helps to have seen much of his work and read various accounts of his life to understand what's being said about him in this ep of "Biography"...
