A wonderfully weird and poignant documentary. Maybe a little long for me, especially as someone who doesn't fully understand Fulci's films. I am confident that fans of his work will absolutely adore this movie.
For true blue Fulci fans this will be a delight. For myself, only a casual fan, was disappointed this wasn't more an in-depth look at his films—there is no footage from any of them presented, only brief behind-the-scenes clips. Still, it's well done, a love letter to the man and his family.
Extremely touching documentary about the man, his family, friends and career. A worthwhile watch!
What a unique way to make a documentary. Thoroughly enjoyed this and the honesty that wasn't withheld. A true documentary based on the good, bad, beautiful, and ugly aspects of the acting and directing world...through Lucio Fulci's experiences.
Unique, heartfelt portrait of one of my favorite directors featuring his family, friends, and coworkers. I especially enjoyed the interviews with his two daughters.
