McKellen: Playing the Part

Description
In a documentary journey we are going through through that experience that takes us towards a world of documentation. The journey of this unique journey through the main milestones of McKellen's life begins from an early childhood to a profession that demands that it be placed in the public eye for the best part of his life. It seems that the film will take a real realistic look using the abundance of photography from McKellen's own albums and reconstructed cinematic scenes.

Eben Bolter's almost expressionist lighting gives the red-chair interviews a theatrical warmth. The editing, like the acting, is impressively off-handed in the recreated scenes, which flip by like quickly turned pages in a book of memories.

A comprehensive and entertaining enough overview ... [but] Sir Ian deserves at least two hours ... it's a bit of everything in 92 minutes, and as such, it's completely entertaining, charming and lovely while also being annoyingly unsatisfying.
