Shaw documentary leans on later years
28 October 2018 | by persistenceofvisionSee all my reviews

A decent documentary about the actor Robert Shaw; made for Irish TV, which explains not only the Gaelic subtitles when a new interviewee appears but its emphasis on the small community in County Mayo where he lived at the end of his life. The concentrating on his latter years (he deep-sixed his writing and stage careers and did movies of varying quality to support his family, dying quite young) makes it a little sad, but all interviewees seem to have fond memories of him.
