Reviews

Old fashioned documentary on a great subject

Sidney Poitier was a great actor and a great man, so I was very much looking forward to this movie, especially given some very positive reviews.

The documentary 'Sidney' is fascinating when Poitier is on screen, being interviewed for this project or in the extensive archive footage.

However it is intensely irritating when some random celebrity comes on screen to tell us what we've just heard, or explain the obvious.

I don't mind the views and anecdotes from his family or people who actually knew him, but there were too many unnecessary talking heads delivering exposition that had obviously been scripted by the production.

Some kind of wonderful and extraordinary

This documentary on Sidney Poitier is an absolute must-watch.

He is near the top amongst my favorite actors and, for that matter, people; his book The Measure of a Man is required reading, because he reveals an extraordinary perspective on countless subjects gleaned from his life time of experiences.

This documentary is jam-packed with appearances and testimonials from Mr. Poitier inspired and associated with: his family, co-stars, friends, and various luminaries.

They all pour forth, with no small amount of affection, great love, and eloquence.

All of the accolades and encomiums fully deserving.

It is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest, most trail-blazing figures of our time.
