Great
14 June 2019 | by aj_104See all my reviews

Brilliant archival footage used to help tell this story, I think Kapadia scores another goal with his 3rd documentary. It is difficult to watch such a talent fall the way he did, but I believe this film helps to showcase some of the reasoning for it - the claustrophobic and trapped life he had to lead because of his immense talent being one of these. I agree with a previous review wishing Diego to have been more involved, it would have been good to have more commentary from the legend himself.
